The Configuration Lifecycle Management (CLM) Virtual Summit brings together the people and companies that are redefining complex product configuration in manufacturing. Join us for an incredible virtual summit May 9, 10 & 11 and gain insights on how to tackle the biggest challenges facing the industry today.

Mastering Product Complexity – How to Get Started
How do you start the journey of mastering the constantly increasing complexity in the product configuration process?
This session will provide an overview of key uses cases to show ways to get started on the Configuration Lifecycle Management (CLM) journey depending on your organisation, strategy and current IT infrastructure, and over time expand from there to address end-to-end configuration challenges.
This session will explain how to intuitively build product models with sophisticated configuration rules and complex interdependencies.
Configit Ace® Model provides interactive graphical user interface for building product models and rules. No programming skills are required to quickly establish models for analysis and configuration.

Analyze Existing Models – Gain Insight into Product Models and Portfolios by Identifying Issues and Indications for Optimization
Analyzing and validating existing product models including complex configuration rules and dependencies is a key capability to identify potential issues and gain insight for optimizations.
This session will show how the Configit Ace® Verify module provides built-in testing capabilities including debugging functionality with intuitive user guidance.
It will be explained how Configit Ace® supports importing models and configuration data to further validate and create a higher consistency before releasing to downstream systems.

Build Product Configurators – How to Build a Fast, Responsive and Reliable Product Configurator
Size and complexity of complex product configurations challenge traditional database-based solutions leading to slow response times and cumbersome processes. But also lack of synchronization with engineering systems leads to inaccurate information.
Configit Ace® provides a rich set of APIs enabling developers to build software applications that offer product configuration tools.
Learn how Configit Ace® can not only verify whether an existing configuration is valid or not, but also can explain why the configuration is invalid. Including providing information on which rules are in conflict and features affected. This allows maintenance engineers to identify a valid configuration faster.

Improve Existing Systems – Scale the Configuration Capabilities in Your Current Systems
Existing enterprise systems, such as PLM, ERP and CRM/CPQ, can struggle to manage the size and complexity of modern product models. In this presentation you will learn how Configit Ace® is specifically designed for this challenge and can help existing systems scale to meet the requirements.
Configit Ace® can also enable extraction of relevant configuration knowledge from different sources across the enterprise, align it to one single data source for configuration and expose data to consuming systems like a customer-facing CPQ. In this way, not only enterprises can scale existing systems and secure investment, but also facilitate an end-to-end configuration process to enable greater operational efficiency and less errors.

Enable Configure-to-Order (CTO) – And Reduce Engineering Support by Automating Configuration
In a traditional Engineer-to-Order (ETO) process, valuable engineering resources are needed to design a solution. For manufacturers with a broad portfolio of highly customizable products and systems, this process is slow and prone to errors and duplication of work.
This session will demonstrate how the shift from ETO towards Configure-to-Order (CTO) processes can be enabled and managed.
Configit Ace® provides the platform for automating the ordering and quoting process to considerably reduce the impact on engineering resources while ensuring valid responses.
With Configit Ace® product models and rules can be used to define how a set of standard components and parts can be assembled to meet orders. Responding to customer requests based on CTO processes in turn improves the customer experience and saves valuable time for engineers for productive work.
