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
The collaboration of Hermann Schwelling Maschinenbau (HSM) and simus systems, expert for management of technical mass data and software developer of simus classmate, started in 2007 with the classification of 175,000 material masters alongside the introduction of SAP. Read more
Theegarten-Pactec in Dresden develops and manufactures packaging systems that can be configured individually. The introduction of simus classmate has been in progress since January 2019. Production Planning, Purchasing and Workflow Management of the mechanical engineering company should improve noticeably with the data management software.
Haas uses simus classmate for lean and extensive master data of their food production systems.
KOCH Pac-Systeme, an expert on packaging machines, has trusted in simus classmate data management software since 2014. Design engineers can access the geometric similarity search as well as automatic analyses of their CAD models with the CAD module newly implemented in 2018 – and accelerate the design process significantly.
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.
