Tacton Design Automation Server

Tacton Design Automation Server lets you automate the generation of CAD documents based on the configuration in Tacton CPQ tools. The CAD documents can be used as visual 2D and 3D representations as well as quotation material. The CAD models can automatically be stored in your PDM or PLM system and later be used as production documentation.

Tacton Design Automation Server provides you with the design automation capabilities that are based on product rules and data defined in a design automation project created in Studio

Studio manages four distinct tasks:

  • Validating product data
  • Defining configuration rules
  • Structuring the end-user interface
  • Connecting with your CAD model

It contains a comprehensive set of modeling concepts and debugging tools as well as a fully functional runtime designed to make your configuration project run as smoothly as possible.

Unbelievable benefits for your business

Design Automation always leads to unbelievable savings of time and money as well as increased quality and margin of your projects by reducing errors and eliminating repetitious work.

Design Automation also enables your engineering team to focus on product development as well as very special customer requests instead of creating the same, but different CAD models and drawings again and again to support the sales and manufacturing process.

Your sales team also benefits from Design Automation by reducing response time to new as well as changing customer requests, resulting in increased sales and customer satisfaction.
