CAE – Holistic tool system: Smooth workflow
Smooth workflow, from tendering to the finished engineering product: Ampere Soft presents the latest version of its holistic tools system.
“Nine out of ten submitted tenders are rejected,” Stefan Mülhens, CEO of Ampere Soft reports. All the more reason, then, to focus on lean processes in the very first steps of preparation.
The Quotation Assistant analyses enquiries automatically and searches them for certain key phrases which indicate the specifications. Then the product offered by the firm is compared with the specifications in the enquiry. The next step is to propose a suitable offer. Because this is integrated into the Amperesoft tool system, project data from the other integrated configurators can be taken over directly to calculate the offer. If the tender meets with a positive response, the data for the detailed engineering is simply transferred to the Proplan CAE system from the tender calculation.
There is a further innovation in the new version of this tool system: the improved Routing Assistant. This enables fully automatic wiring routing, taking into account depth measurements such as cabinet doors. The result is completely confectioned cabling, listing such details as the length, diameter and colour of the wires to be used.
