This is a software tool which allows industrial companies to manage personalised products. It is designed for companies offering products with multiple options and combinations (for example, different functions, finishes, measurements…)
Within industrial and logistics environments, the configurator should automate the entry of the structure and fabrication route into the ERP, reducing the task of manufacturing engineering and eliminating errors.
It should also integrate with the product’s engineering, co-existing with systems specific to that area such as CAD and PDM and avoiding redundant tasks.
Industrial ERP + CAD
The connector for engineering, combined with document management units and BPM (Business Process Management) standard to ERP enables bidirectional native integration between ERP and any CAD tool through the combined use of Add-Ins (small programmes) and access methods to the repository of data and applications.
This deep integration between ERP and CAD tools enables the creation in ERP, in a secure manner and in very early stages of the design process of products, of lists of materials, quality specifications, lists of components in projects and so on. This makes engineering information clearly available to the rest of the logistics, production and supply chain in time and quality.
PDM (Product Data Management)
The PDM (Product Data Management) system is responsible for providing the tools required to control, standardise and share information relating to products within an industrial company.
Product details affect everything from technical specifications to manufacturing and design specifications, as well as materials used. It is mainly used by the engineering areas of industrial businesses.
PDM helps us to guarantee the high levels of quality that the industry demands, within an environment of great changeability of product versions. It is collaborative in terms of engineering and manufacturing processes carried out in different, geographically disparate places.
CAE (Computer Aided Enginering)
Increase the quality of your products and reduce the cost of real prototypes and testing through submitting designs to real conditions. This CAE tool offers a complete set of simulation packages which can be used to configure virtual environments of the real world. These can be used to carry out tests with a wide range of parameters (durability, static and dynamic response, assembly movement and so on) during the design process to evaluate the productivity of the design and improve its quality and security.
CAD (Computer Aided Design)
CAD software offers powerful design functions, with an intuitive user interface which can be used to streamline the process of design and which will be highly productive right from the beginning. The CAD solution offered by the Alliance is the number 1 engineering software in the world, increasingly used as a standard. This has increased its impact within the industry as well as the number of professionals who are skilled in its usage.
CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing)
The CAM tool, which is totally integrated with the different CAD systems on the market, minimises time spent on generating CNC programmes. In addition to this, changes in design are automatically updated in manufacturing operations. This eliminates hours of programming through interpretation of the design of parts due to Automatic Recognition of Traits. CNC programming is flexible, fast, efficient and reliable. Compatible with all CNCs on the market.
