The ETP production principle is particularly suitable for customer-specific products. With this principle, the development and design process is triggered immediately after receipt of a customer order. The development is partly forecast, and partly order-driven. The areas of design, procurement, production, final assembly and distribution are usually order-driven in Engineer-to-Order. This manufacturing principle is particularly suitable for customer-specific products. The degree of standardization is low due to individuality, and the production machines are connected.
The user can construct a workpiece directly in the browser. Material, surface, shape, size, etc. are determined by the customer.
With the help of an integrated rule engine, an immediate feasibility check is carried out. If there is a conflict, a warning message is displayed.
Check material availability
Warehouse stock level can be called up via connection to the ERP system.
Check machine availability
The networking of production planning with WebCAD makes it possible to check the availability of the machinery. This creates the basis for optimizing production management.
A very precise price calculation is carried out depending on all relevant factors such as material costs, machine use, additional work needed or desired and many more.
With the help of the Guided Selling process, the ordering of the product is effectively supported.
Generate machine control code
WebCAD is able to send all production-relevant data directly to the machine to be produced directly after the customer has placed an order.
Optimize order pool
Orders with identical production specifications can be combined (pooling). This leads to a drastic increase in production efficiency.
Production can be started directly via interfaces to various databases by automatically generating the machine code.
After production, the product is packed and shipped to the customer.
