Benefits in the documentation, coordination, and ordering stages
The item Engineeringtool also offers the potential to save time with the documentation, too. On average, this can take up to two hours. Since the software for designing constructions made of aluminum profiles automatically generates the documentation in a very short time, users have more time for tasks that actually add value. The documentation is available in compact, detailed and complete versions. Among other things, it includes a parts list, a detailed machining plan, a multiview projection, an isometric drawing showing all dimensions, an exploded view and an assembly guide. What’s more, every design that is placed in the shopping cart is automatically assigned a globally unique project number.
This Cx article number is all that is required to order the design or to view it in the Projectviewer. Everyone involved in the project can therefore use this number to access the design and all the additional information, making coordination much easier. The result is a process chain that is digital from end to end – from the design phase and compiling the data to transferring the data into the documentation and placing the design in the shopping cart. This helps eliminate transfer errors and misunderstandings. Above all, though, it significantly reduces the throughput times for design projects. The straightforward ordering process and rapid availability of item components ensure the machined profiles and associated small parts can be shipped within a very short time. As a result, customers can get the construction into service very quickly.
