PLM/CAD integration

Through PLM integration, APplus ensures a seamless connection between ERP on the one hand and development and production data on the other. Parts lists created in the CAD system can be used immediately in production after approval. In this way, cross-departmental collaboration is ensured seamlessly at all times.

In this context, you also benefit particularly from the web service architecture. Thanks to APplus, both designers and AV employees can work in their traditional system: The designer with the CAD as well as the integrated EDM/PDM system, the AV or procurement employee with the PPS module. At the same time, both are able to access all relevant data.

Order-related individual production

Even order-related individual production is no problem with APplus. Our solution enables you to optimally plan and utilise your production and personnel capacities.

Product configuration / assemble-to-order production

The powerful product configurator benefits you in variant production. The solution supports alternative items in bills of materials or routings as well as simple formulas for quantity or dimension variants as standard. In addition, comprehensive product logics for sales or production can also be comprehensively mapped. Thanks to modern technologies such as XML and C#, you achieve maximum flexibility and productivity when creating your product-describing logics.

Decision tables are also available at any time if required. The characteristics list (according to DIN 4000) can be used as a central rationalisation tool in variant production. It can be used to quickly and easily find suitable parts in development - and thus efficiently reduce the variety of parts.

Growing BOMs

What exactly is the composition of an article to be produced? Often this question is not fully clarified at the beginning of the design process. So that you can nevertheless start production as quickly as possible, APplus supports you with the function of the growing parts list. This can be gradually resolved in the course of the process, while complete parts and components are already being manufactured.

Project Development

Our specialised module offers you comprehensive project planning functions with which you can cover all process steps - from the quotation to production to delivery of your unit to the customer - in an integrated manner.

Project and product costing

If you want to operate efficiently, you have to calculate efficiently. APplus supports you here with comprehensive costing functions. Whether detailed, production-related preliminary costing, concurrent or final costing, including variance analyses - with APplus you always have an overview of your costs and expenses.

Especially for contract manufacturing, costs can be assigned directly to the order that caused them: From stock material to in-house production to external production and all order-related procurement processes including all relevant additional costs. Serial production, on the other hand, benefits from standard cost accounting, which can also be carried out easily and efficiently in APplus.

Apparatebau Service

Efficient service for your equipment

In case of service, a fast handling of maintenance processes is essential. Our APplus service module helps you to process returns economically and enables you to efficiently plan, carry out and document your in-house maintenance processes. For fast service processing and the greatest possible customer satisfaction.
