Gessmann GmbH in Leingarten, Germany, uses the simus classmate software suite to improve the reuse rate of CAD models – which also leads to cost reductions in downstream areas. Based on the same data, a calculation accompanying the design is directly integrated into the CAD system – but Work Scheduling and Purchasing should also benefit from it.
At a purchasing volume of several million Euro per year for machined parts, product developers should be well-informed about their manufacturing costs; because the rule of thumb is that 80 percent are determined in the product development stage. PI (Physik Instrumente) in Karlsruhe introduces simus classmate for this reason and integrates cost control directly to the CAD system. Read more
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.
Hans Weber Maschinenfabrik GmbH in Kronach, Germany uses classmate PLAN by simus systems to calculate almost all their parts – and therefore saves 70 percent of time spent on calculations.
The expert in grinding technology and plastic intruders goes one step further: Even at the initial design stage, a simple cost comparison already leads to economical designs ready for production. Read more
The Kiefel GmbH partially automated their procurement process – and got support for the job from the data management specialist simus systems. The company now benefits from automatic cost calculation with the help of the simus classmate application as well as automatic vendor assignment.
Hauni achieves transparency for a reduction of manufacturing costs at an early stage with CAD-integrated calculation software
In machines for filter and cigarette manufacturing alone, Hauni Maschinenbau GmbH based in Hamburg produces 30,000 new parts per year – each machine contains between 2,000 and 4,000 manufactured parts. In this case, transparency in manufacturing costs pays off: The CAD-integrated simus classmate software suite by simus systems currently calculates 80 percent of parts automatically with an accuracy rate of 95 percent.
As one of nine innovation centers worldwide, the Océ Printing Systems GmbH & Co. KG in Poing near Munich, Germany, develops, produces and markets digital high performance printing systems with related workflow and software solutions. With the support of simus systems and their calculation tool classmate PLAN, the global market leader in the field of […]
