Caterpillar Propulsion’s project

 

Caterpillar Propulsion is one of the world’s leading producers of controllable pitch propellers. The company has transformed how it designs and quotes for its products with Design Automation software from Tacton.

Caterpillar Propulsion used to allocate 24-60 hours to produce drawings for its customized propellers. Now the company is producing the same drawings in less than 20 minutes with Tacton.

View our webinar, find out how Caterpillar Propulsion achieved these impressive results, and learn how you can do the same.

Tacton Design Automation Studio

The design rules for the products and their components are defined in Tacton Design Automation Studio.

These rules are then used by other Tacton Design Automation products for product customization. Tacton Design Automation Studio has a simple, graphical point-and-click environment, running as an add-in within the CAD software.

Best of all, the creation of design rules requires no programming skills.

Kramp

Als der gelernte Fahrradschlosser Johann Kramp im Jahr 1951 den gleichnamigen Landtechnik-Händler gründete, hatte er eine klare Vorstellung: Langfristiger Erfolg basiert auf einem stabilen Markt. Sein Motto lautete: “Halte Dich ans Essen, denn das ist das letzte, worauf Menschen verzichten.” Dieses Motto zahlt sich bis heute für Kramp aus. Inzwischen ist das Unternehmen einer der größten Landtechnik-Händler in Europa, mit rund 3200 Mitarbeitern und Aktivitäten in 16 Ländern. Kramp hat noch ein weiteres Erfolgsrezept. Ein gutes Gespür für Innovationen, dank derer Kramp dem Wettbewerb einen entscheidenden Schritt voraus ist.

Kramp wollte es Kunden ermöglichen, über den Web-Shop ihr Produkt gemäß ihren Anforderungen konfigurieren und nach der Konfiguration sofort auf valide Zeichnungen und 3D-Modelle, Preise und Lieferzeiten zugreifen können. Um das zu erreichen, entschied sich das Unternehmen für die CPQ und Design Automation Lösungen von Tacton.

“Unser Ziel war es, den Kunden das Gefühl zu geben, dass sie ein individuelles Produkt so bequem wie ein Standardprodukt aus dem Web-Shop kaufen können.”
