Plant Configurator

For a medium-sized business we developed software for the configuration and calculation of industrial plants.

The Problem

Until now, industrial plants could only be conceptualized by adept engineers drawing on their comprehensive expertise to plan the components required for an optimal set-up of the plant.

Aims and Objectives

The configuration of a plant should be as intuitive as possible and easily operable for non-expert employees. An additional objective was the elimination of potential sources of errors that could previously occur, if certain factors were neglected during planning.

Die Zielsetzung im Überblick:

  • Intuitive Bedienung ohne spezifisches Fachwissen
  • Eliminierung von Fehlerquellen durch umfassende Beziehungslogik

The Convario Solution

The software we built allows for the definition of a number of parameters via an intuitive user interface. For this purpose, we designed a set of rules specifying the interrelationship between components. This rule set defines over 400 conditions, which are checked in real time.

The Software at a Glance:

  • Intuitive Application
  • Comprehensive Set of Rules
  • Touch Support

Application of the Software

The software was designed both for PC use and as a Tablet-App. This way, field employees are able to conceptualize a plant on site with the end-customer that can be simultaneously verified and calculated. The software is internationally used on a daily basis. Due to the fast and accurate issuing of quotes, there has been a significant increase in project acquisition.

Die Anwendung im Überblick:

  • Tablet-App für Außendienstmitarbeiter
  • Real time-Calculation
  • International Usability
