Manufacturing Automation for Manufacturing
You want to streamline and connect your customers, sales, and engineering teams to the shop floor in an automated end-to-end process that begins with the customer, directly at the point of purchase, and ends with the finished product.
But sales reps are frequently submitting product configurations that are optimized poorly from an engineering and profitable standpoint. And engineers are bogged down with requests and rework that slow down sales cycles and restrict innovation.
Once a product configuration has been finalized, sales reps can automatically generate all of the documents required to initiate manufacturing. Technical drawings, CAD files, CNC cut sheets, bill of materials, and product renderings are all created without any input from engineering.
Complex product rules ensure only valid configurations make their way through sales and engineering to the production team, eliminating the time-wasting back-and-forth that causes deal-threatening delays. Sales feel confident that products will be built to customers’ exact specifications, and customers always get what they want, on time.
"For Tuff Shed, KBMax really shined with their workflow capabilities. They allowed us not only to generate a quote and order, but also to build internal documents through workflows."
"KBMax's 3D Configurator can be manipulated smoothly to let your customer view your product from any angle, add options and place them where they like. Rules can be created behind the scenes to make sure that the configuration is valid, putting the power in their hands, but not allowing them to put something together that can't be produced by your manufacturing team."
Product variation compounded by the complexity of multiple pricing models can create confusion and inefficiency among your organization’s engineering, manufacturing, and sales teams. In this four-part guide, we’ll uncover how to address challenges like these in your sales to manufacturing processes by using CPQ software.Get the eBook
