Configuration of Systems of Multiple Interdependent Products
Complex solutions involving multiple interdependent products have proven to be difficult to model. Solution projects often need to be quoted in the face of uncertain or missing information. Costly and time-consuming engineering support is needed to adapt to dynamic changes in the project as new information becomes available.
With the powerful system-level configuration capabilities available in the latest release of Configit Ace®, it is possible to model complex engineering rules and constraints across multiple products and systems, reducing the need for engineering support when dynamic changes occur.
Respond fast to dynamic changes with lower cost and fewer errors.
What Is System-Level Configuration?
Configit Ace® is already the leading Configuration Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution providing a single source of truth on product configurations for multiple product variants and releases. But solutions often involve multiple, interdependent products or components with complex configuration rules for how this “system” should be configured and scaled to meet different customer requirements.
The system-level configuration capabilities in the latest release of Configit Ace® takes CLM to the next level. It enables customers to capture the complex engineering rules and constraints that dictate how a system of interdependent products and components is configured.
As solution requirements or critical input data changes over the course of the project delivery, the system-level configuration rules can be used to adapt the solution quickly, without the need for engineering support.
A System-Level Configuration Tunnel Lighting Example
System-level configuration enables complex projects to be quoted in the face of uncertain information. The ability to model complex, system-level rules and constraints enables solutions to be quickly and dynamically re-configured as new input is received, without the need for engineering support.
This allows complex projects to be quoted with more precision, predictability and assurance.
A System-Level Configuration Mining Example
System-level configuration enables complex systems of interdependent products and components to be configured and visualized without the need for engineering support. Complex rules defining interdependencies can be defined at multiple levels.
This allows complex solutions to be configured rather than engineered.
Explore the Possibilities Using Our New Features
Reduce Cost, Time and Errors
Modeling of engineering rules and constraints across multiple products and systems that allow dynamic changes to be made to solutions without the need for engineering support.
Richer API Integration
Richer Configit Ace® Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) now support data type checking leading to fewer interface implementation errors as well as model change notifications.
Faster Response Time
Configit Ace® enables 3D visualizations based on Unity and 2D CAD drawings based on Solidworks and Autodesk Inventor to be created quickly in response to dynamic changes.
Configuration Access Anywhere
System-Level Offline Configuration
Configit Ace® provides rich support for offline access to system-level configuration data. Virtual Tabulation® files are made available to the client application on portable devices allowing offline access.
