Siemens, based in Berlin and Munich, is a global company with a focus on electrification, automation and digitization. With over 379,000 employees in 190 countries (118,000 of them in Germany alone) and annual sales of 83 billion euros (FY 2017/2018), the listed group is one of the largest companies in the world.
To implement the project, Plan Software, as the responsible service provider, worked closely with the "Siemens Competence Center for Configuration" and the Siemens division "Infrastructure & Cities Sector - Low and Medium Voltage Division - Low Voltage & Products". Together with our technology partner KiM and other Siemens departments, six locations were interlinked in an agile project. The 3D control cabinet configurator, which was seamlessly integrated into the existing system infrastructure, facilitates configuration for both sales staff and customers. The final product is visualized realistically, can be viewed from all sides and can be adapted according to one's own wishes - right up to the color design and special requests such as breakouts. The control cabinet configurator was presented at SPS IPC Drives in November 2018 in Nuremberg. It was officially put into operation for the Hanover Fair in April 2019.
we solved it.
With the 8MF control cabinet configurator, we wanted to achieve a sustainable improvement in the ordering process for customers, sales and production. We succeeded in doing this very well.
