Cooperative platform Engineering Base – central data management plus intelligent, team-oriented editing

The challenges for modern engineering systems

Increasingly complex tasks within less and less time and thus the desire for more cooperation: the conventional tool chain is no longer sufficient for parallel, simultaneous editing.

International, multidisciplinary division of work needs scalable system architectures that support all variants of the installation - from the single workstation to Cloud computing. They need to be able to provide both online cooperation on the same database as well as offline integration of suppliers and customers.

Flexibility: different disciplines, documents, work methods, data models, languages, standards, and so on, require maximum adaptability.

Fantastic and a reality: considerably reducing time pressure!

How fantastic would it be to handle these multiple tasks much faster? Without error-prone data transfers and discussions? With the consistent cooperation of all participating disciplines, despite global distribution, different time zones, competences, languages and engineering cultures? With a modern Cloud concept and access at all times to current data? Sounds fantastic – and is already a reality: with Engineering Base!

Cooperative by nature

The principle of parallel, simultaneous working of all core disciplines on the same versatile data model ends the time-consuming as well as outmoded "relaying" of information. All data, once created, can be used directly by all concerned, regardless of location, time zone or language. Thus the digital image of the design object becomes the current basis of the team work at all times.

Changing consistently

In Engineering Base, every change is shown in every representation of the changed object - without waiting times or complex synchronization. Of course, this includes an advanced change management (execution management). Thus the versatile model always ensures the highest consistency of the overall documentation and makes cooperation efficient.

Open for integration

In addition to the parallelization of all core disciplines of engineering, the cooperative platform Engineering Base is also open for bidirectional connection of adjacent systems such as 3D, PLM or ERP. Numerous integrations are already proven practice. No other system offers this versatility!

Modern system architecture

Engineering Base stands for maximum scalability – from mobile notebooks or single-user workstations via SME solutions up to server farms with hundreds of globally-networked users.

With AUCOTEC's Cloud concept, it is possible to design machines, plants and mobile systems with any scalability in the Cloud. Engineering Base is open for mobile applications and integration into complex information portals via the Web Communication Server.
