Configuration and automation processes
at enterprise level.
RuleDesigner Configurator is a web-based application that allows to realize configuration and automation processes at enterprise level. It makes possible to create an integrated process that goes from the customer’s offer request to the release of the product documentation.
A flexible and cross-functional tool that allows to reach the maximum efficiency all along the product lifecycle and customer relations through sales configurations to support marketing and sales, product configurations to support the technical office, the automatic generation of data and documents and finally the automation of inter-departmental workflows.
HOW IT WORKS
Create, Configure, Manage and Track configuration processes
THE MASTER PROSESS
WITH THE RULES EDITOR
RuleDesigner Configurator has an editor for defining the set of rules and constraints of the configuration process, simple to use. The configuration process is defined visually by combining the extensive set of library actions which pilot the execution of external application operations.
Configuration processes can be executed locally or remotely via browser from any workstation or mobile device. The execution of the processes can be scheduled interactively ( input request from users) or in batch mode (fully automatic when events occur).
RuleDesigner provides a web archive for organizing and managing the configuration processes life-cycle created. It allows to logically break down procedures to reducing complexity, simplifying maintenance and speeding deployment of new processes or updates.
With RuleDesigner you can take advantage of high performance in configuring and staging configuration data made along the workflow. This allows to monitor the progress of the configurations and terminate them even at different times.
Face dynamic processes with the configurator
RuleDesigner allows to adopt a standard approach to specific processes
One configurator for the whole company
The configuration related to design aspects is extremely valid, but RuleDesigner Configurator goes beyond. In fact, it is possible to generate and manage information for ERPs, company DB and create different kind of documents, including sales documents, data sheets, manuals, assembly instructions or perform operational sequences and tasks such as: sending e-mails, generating and dynamic publishing of pages.
Independent management of modelling tools
A critical aspect when managing a product configurator is the definition of customized configuration rules. Sometimes, companies are reluctant to release information about their own rules to companies that would help them in developing environment which might be even highly subjected to change in the future. To overlap these issues, RuleDesigner provides users powerful and intuitive administration tools to create and keep configuration environments autonomously and fully under control.
Web-based Product Configurations
Configuration processes can be executed both locally and remotely via web. The latter option may be a strategic element for organizations to mark up their sales offer. Organization can deliver external people the possibility to consult, assemble and decide the type of product and variants and then evaluate the economic aspects in a very short time. This service is an essential sales plus that can no longer be ignored in industrial applications.
Consolidation of the company knowledge
Sometimes critical information on business processes and procedures are present in the company but are not organized and easily to find. RuleDesigner provides methods and techniques for mapping and accumulating the know-how into a single “smart warehouse” available to the different kind of users.
RuleDesigner is the only configurator, on the market for applying automation to your business processes at enterprise-level.
Governance tool for business applications
Through web-services, it drives and interacts with databases and business applications, common desktop applications (Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe InDesign), mechatronic design systems (2D and 3D CAD) as well as systems for product data management (PDM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP).
Integration with a modular enterprise platform
RuleDesigner Configurator is equipped with integrated functional modules that make possible to extend its application throughout the extended company, becoming the ideal knowledge-base for receiving, organizing and introducing the data generated by the configuration processes into the correct workflows.
Support to labour mobility
The web-based architecture supports the tasks of those who work both inside and outside of the company. Configuration processes can be executed locally without a web connection and synchronized later on, with the Fusion platform.
Simple to use and maintain
The user interface, characterized by a step by step interaction paradigm driven by rules, makes it possible the use of the configurator by any user profile, allowing organizations to offer configuration services to both final customers and/or business partners.
Thanks to a consolidated standard technology with high configurability it avoids the problems of custom software applications.
The powerful collaborative modelling environment allows multiple users to work on the same configuration project.
