Tacton was the only solution we found that makes it possible to approach a configuration from different angles. Regardless of the customer’s starting point, the software always calculates the best solution by working with constraints on business rules instead of running down a decision tree.

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.


Yaskawa ist einer der weltweit führenden Anbieter von Mechatronik- und Robotiklösungen. Um sicherzustellen, dass alle angebotenen Produkte in technischer Hinsicht zu 100 % korrekt sind, entschied sich Yaskawa bei der Einführung einer Lösung für die Vertriebskonfiguration für Tacton.

Lesen Sie unsere Customer Story und erfahren Sie, wie es Yaskawa geschafft hat, umfangreiche Angebote auf Knopfdruck erstellen zu können – inklusive angepasster Zeichnungen und Illustrationen, basierend auf der vorgenommenen Produktkonfiguration.

Ich weiß, dass viele Unternehmen zögern, einen Konfigurator einzuführen, weil sie denken, dass ihre Produkte nicht gut strukturiert werden können oder dass die Kombinationen zu kompliziert sind. Wir haben diese Kommentare auch in unserem Unternehmen gehört. Es gab Leute, die sagten, es wäre nicht möglich, aber es war möglich. Der Konfigurator half uns, diese Bedenken auszuräumen, und überzeugte sogar die „Experten“, die auf dem Produktwissen saßen.

Design Automation bei ClearStream


Check out our latest webinar with ClearStream Environmental! Learn about Tacton’s Design Automation solution. The webinar introduces Tacton’s design automation products. You’ll see Design Automation in action and hear how ClearStream Environmental streamlined its design and quote process. The company previously allocated four to six weeks to produce a custom quote and design for one of its sedimentation units. Now the same process can be completed in as little as a day.


Power and automation leader ABB was working with two different configurators for their accessories range – covering only 20% of their products. They switched to Tacton CPQ and managed to cover 100% of the range within four months, and replaced over 500,000 rules with 150 constraints.

We quickly understood that a sequential, rule-based configurator would never meet our needs. We didn’t want to have to answer the same question over and over. We wanted to define a customer’s requirement and for that requirement to filter through to all areas it affected automatically. We also wanted to be able to start at any point in the configuration – if you don’t have an answer to a particular question, it doesn’t matter – the configurator should do the thinking for you. And that is exactly what Tacton provided us with.
