Software for industrial production: staff with tablet in production hall

Software for industrial production

Planning, drawing, processing and documenting, as well as constantly working with data from the cloud or mobile sources are just some of the many complex project phases in industrial production. This in turn requires integrated software solutions with a wide range of functions. Without them, projects take too long.

The unmapped parts of the digitalisation landscape are getting smaller and smaller, including in industrial production. Many of the tasks that designers, production managers, maintenance engineers and machine operators need to complete can now be done entirely using tailor-made software solutions. Here are some of the highlights of our digital products and services. You can find more in our App World.

Schematic Solution: Eplan projects at the touch of a button

Where were the configuration solutions again? Which file has the documents for the individual components? There are countless files accumulating on computers. We have developed Schematic Solution so that you don’t have to spend your time on tedious searches and long-winded, error-prone documentation. The tool creates a project for you, using the order code for a custom configured solution. It does this in no time at all and without any errors – you just need to enter the order code in the search field. There’s no more tedious searching for, downloading and piecing together of individual components.

  • Intuitive, fast and reliable: error-free documentation at the push of a button
  • Complete: full mechatronic representation of configured products such as CPX, VTSA and MPA
  • Reliable: automated generation in accordance with the IEC 61355/IEC 81346/ISO 1219 standards
  • Economical: gain time for value-adding activities
