RK Rose+Krieger relies on the costing24 web service from simus systems to respond quickly to customer enquiries about individual products and to support development projects. Read on to find out how the company is saving significant time and effort, submitting bids faster and meeting its cost targets. Read more
In preparation for its migration to SAP S/4HANA, Rhaetian Railway in Landquart, Switzerland, revised its 180,000 material master records for rolling stock, catenaries, tunnels and bridges with simus systems. The pilot project already revealed that the software and methodology provided by simus classmate would be indispensable for the main project. Following the successful classification and migration of 108,000 records, the system is now being used in construction, maintenance and materials management to quickly search for and create new materials, assign classes and automatically generate short texts.

As a manufacturer of special machines, KOCH Pac-Systeme is a leader in know-how when it comes to the development and implementation of modular customised blister machines and packaging lines. The company from the Black Forest in Germany relies on simus systems in order to achieve excellence in business processes around SAP S/4HANA: So far, the collaboration between the two companies has led to the achievement of fast CAD part searches, high reuse, accurate costing, and the pre-migration classification and structuring of material masters.

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
As one of the three leading application specialists in conveying and compression of gases, Aerzener Maschinenfabrik GmbH (AERZEN for short) produces high-performance blowers and screw compressors for industrial application. In order to increase efficiency and keep its promise for quality even more extensively, the company has been working on improving master data quality for about ten years. Using software and services by simus systems, a classification was build and a systematic master data creation process was created in integration with SAP. Read more
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.
simus systems has advised Piller Blowers & Compressors GmbH in setting up a classification and prepared master data for a migration of the ERP system to SAP S/4HANA for approximately two years.
In this process, all of the master data was revised and significantly reduced. simus classmate was introduced for the purpose of classification and master data maintenance: User-friendly tools synchronize the data directly with the ERP system.
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
