As a provider of high tech solutions for automated manufacturing and superfinishing systems, Supfina noted an increase in the number of parts despite their variant management and building blocks for parts. A classification project in collaboration with simus systems GmbH from Karlsruhe, Germany, helped with data cleaning. Subsequently, the flood of product data was limited effectively by the simus classmate software suite. Apart from an increased efficiency in design, new potential benefits could be implemented in many places in the company.
Windmöller & Hölscher (W&H), a manufacturer of machines and production lines for flexible packaging operating worldwide, uses the simus classmate software as the basis for global Value Management. A transparent database and automated processes that already facilitate the assessments of costs in the concept phase, lead to a reduction in the diversity of parts and provide Purchasing and Production with valid target costs for throusands of new parts every month. The solution created by simus systems integrates with the existing CAD, PLM and ERP systems.
As an international network of technology businesses, Putsch GmbH & Co. KG with its headquarters in Hagen, Germany, was facing a new generation of information technology. The company for machinery and equipment with a focus on the sugar industry used the opportunity of switching systems from PPS and PDM to improve their master data. The expert simus systems used the software simus classmate to support them in this pursuit. After the migration in ERP and PLM software by SAP, simus classmate automated the classification and text generation.
For over ten years, KSB AG, one of the world’s leading manufacturers in the pumps and valves market, optimizes its master data in the ERP system by SAP with the support and the software of simus systems in Karlsruhe. Worldwide processes were accelerated, the IT system landscape was harmonized, a consistent level of knowledge established, platforms for product development created and global cooperation was improved with new processes.
HEKUMA counts on simus systems for the classification of its master data and work plan generation. The high performance automation company from Eching, Germany, puts their trust for classification of their master data and work plan generation in the professional support of the simus systems GmbH and their software solutions.
