Process-oriented, integrated, and automated
The factors for maximum cost cutting are a system's performance and its integrability in the corporate processes including the automatability of design and development steps. With EPLAN Electric P8 these come as standard. For example, before items are retrieved from a preliminary or project bill of materials, the default quantities are subjected to an online examination. In addition, unified interfaces like ODBC, XML, and even Excel import and prepare data from upstream processes, transferring the results immediately to the downstream processes like production. Not only the pure advantage of speed for this unbroken communication, also the data integrity and therefore the quality of the results are a crucial competitive advantage.
