About Vestas and Their Challenge
Vestas faced growing product complexity and a scalability challenge around the setup of their systems and data. With their core products having a high complexity with many hundreds of options, Vestas’ key product data was managed in multiple systems. They were relying on a few expert people, manual processes and workarounds which came with a high risk. The result was a slower time to market along with a high risk of errors and configuration inaccuracies.
Vestas has been going through a large-scale modularization project, during which time they have achieved full transparency of their product portfolio. Today, Vestas has a collaborative configuration platform, allowing them to combine their commercial, engineering and technical rules together to streamline and enhance their configuration process.
