AUCOTEC's engineering platform for highly efficient cooperation

Engineering platform for Industry 4.0-compliant plant design

Collaborative, simultaneous, consistent: AUCOTEC has created a unique platform that goes far beyond conventional CAE for electrical engineering documentation. It is familiar with the most diverse industry segments, from the mechanical or process engineering of plant construction up to wire harnesses in all types of mobile systems. In a project, all disciplines work on one flexible, extensible data model in the same central, reliable database. Whether systems engineering or Industry 4.0 applications such as predictive maintenance are involved: Engineering Base (EB) makes modern plant design easy and efficient with future-oriented technology and intuitive handling. EB is open for integration into any company IT system, scalable from the international enterprise solution down to the smallest engineering office.

The challenges for modern engineering systems

  • Also as a result of Industry 4.0, increasingly complex tasks, more and more collaboration, less and less time: 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 provide for both online collaboration on the same database, and offline integration of suppliers and customers.
  • Flexibility: different disciplines, documents, work methods, data models, languages, standards, and so on, require maximum adaptability.

THE solution for sustainable engineering processes

  • With its three-layer architecture and central database, Engineering Base very flexibly and efficiently supports work groups in their interdisciplinary cooperation.
  • The successes in a wide range of industries prove that the open data model is enormously adaptable; the API also allows any required extension to be easily implemented
  • The intuitive interface ensures short familiarisation periods and efficient use across linguistic and cultural boundaries
  • The user determines the workflow, and not the system! Engineering Base adapts to each work method. The central data model displays the up-to-date status immediately in each view, regardless of whether the data was entered graphically or alphanumerically.
  • Automated "feeding" of big data applications such as predictive maintenance with engineering data makes Industry 4.0 feasible.
  • Microsoft standard components: full integration reduces the time prior to the start of productive engineering with EB.
