Eplan Forum for Automated Engineering to Be a Hybrid Event

This year’s Eplan Forum for Automated Engineering (EFIA) will be a hybrid event Sept. 28-29 offering presentations, hands-on demonstrations and opportunities to network. The event will focus on modularization, standardization and automation. These topics matter immensely for both management and machine and plant system engineering users.

Eplan’s Director of go-to-market management Harold van Waardenburg said, “If you modularize your machine or plant system from the start of the development process, you’re laying the foundation for standardization.”

Presentations, workshops and hands-on sessions will offer top-level management, software users, and everyone in-between fresh ideas about a variety of key topics, including:

  • Modularization of machines and products
  • Standardization in engineering
  • Automatic creation of schematics, control cabinet layouts, bills of materials and additional manufacturing documentation
  • Cabling on a machine’s digital twin

The company Achenbach Buschhütten will be presenting on the topic "Making the product fit for digitally networked value creation." Odego CEO Dr. Sandra Szech will be talking about “How to make building block development a success” and sharing her experiences with the methodical development and evaluation of modular systems, amongst other topics. The companies Aartec Engineering B.V. and Sollich KG will also be giving insights into practical applications.

Additional companies, including Grundfos and CadCabel, will also be communicating their practical applications with EF|A attendees. Eplan experts will be supplementing these examples with methods and strategies for modularization, standardization and for automated engineering using the eBuild, Eplan Cogineer and EEC solutions.

Hands-on sessions

During the hands-on sessions, users can try out Eplan software for themselves. Generating schematics or testing machine cabling on a 3D model: it can all be tested and tried out live–for quick initial impressions and insights into the software. Eplan partners including Configit, Encoway and SAE will give presentations and talk with attendees at virtual partner stands.
