Can We Intelligently Use Part Numbers to Configure and Order the Right Products?
In the industrial automation industry, an overlooked, fatal flaw of sales configurator solutions is their inability to simultaneously configure part numbers and

metal bending  material used (plastic or metal), the safety features (hermetically sealed [for inflammatory environments]), and the material (subject to the electrical signal power needed for turning the switch on or off). While these specifications sound involved, the fact is that such an item would cost only about $10.00 (USD). Thus, if the customer describes the item''s specifications by phone or fax, the sales order clerk would eat up (use up) the entire profit margin by the time the order is finally captured.

Quoting and Costing for Multiple Units of Measure
A common need of plastics producers is real-time shop floor production monitoring. This serves many purposes, including tracking cycles on tools or machines

This helps users leverage production and process monitoring solutions to export part information and production schedules to each machine interface unit. Some potential benefits thereof would be the ability to analyze for downtime and rejects; monitor machines in real time to defuse problems before they adversely affect quality and productivity; and schedule preventative machine maintenance. Other benefits include the ability to automate production reporting, Read More...
