Batch size 1 and the ability to quote the delivery date at the time of the customer’s inquiry are probably the most serious requirements in mechanical engineering. Today, the gut feeling of employees with many years of experience is an indispensable factor in the entire production environment. In the future, too, these employees will be indispensable, since knowledge is not transferable at will – no system, no matter how good, can replace this ability.
Here, the goal and purpose is to support ongoing processes with suitable tools and to make the knowledge gained available for future projects/orders. The requirements for realistic simulation must also be covered, otherwise no possible influencing variables can be considered.
Through a single master data management, the GRP system enables a central contact point for the exchange of information and experience. This ensures that even new employees are trained efficiently.
