February 22, 2017 - At the Hannover Messe (Hanover Trade Fair) 2017, Aucotec AG will be publicly introducing its Project Status Manager for machine and plant design for the first time. The module of the database-driven CAE platform Engineering Base (EB) can both automate workflows within the system as well as exchange data with all types of external systems. The Status Manager is designed to ensure that the central documentation is always up-to-date and that versions are not confused. Interface handling and release mechanisms are simplified, and the data quality is increased.
With its central data model, EB combines inherently diverse disciplines, for example, basic and detail engineering. However, Aucotec's integration package also provides links to different ERP, 3-D or automation systems, as well as predictive maintenance, simulation or production.
Here, Aucotec uses several integration approaches. A whole series of ready-made interfaces can be easily inserted via "plug and play", for example, for 3-D, PDM or ERP systems. Some links, for example, to the offline editing of EB data by suppliers with third-party systems, can be easily configured without any programming knowledge. There is also the option in EB of installing customized integrations such as web services for mobile maintenance, for example, via .Net. If necessary, Aucotec assists customers here with the necessary programming knowledge.
