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.
Marel, globally active developer and manufacturer of machines, systems and complete solutions for the fish, meat and poultry processing industry, is introducing the simus classmate software suite for automatic calculation and work plan generation. Since January 2021, the Boxmeer and Dongen (Netherlands) production sites are already successfully using the solution. In the first half of 2021 also Gainesville in Georgia (USA) and Gardabaer in Iceland are expected to go live.
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
