Manufacturing Automation for Heavy Equipment
Sell more equipment. Build it faster.
Manual processes dispersed throughout your operations are creating errors and inefficiencies
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 equipment.
But sales reps are frequently submitting machine configurations that are optimized poorly from an engineering and profit-making standpoint. And engineers are bogged down with requests and rework that slow down sales cycles and restrict innovation.
Eliminate bottlenecks and supercharge heavy equipment manufacturing efficiency through automation
Once the configuration of a piece of heavy equipment has been finalized with the customer, the sales rep 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.
KBMax captures the engineering rules that govern your complex machinery’s production to ensure that only valid equipment configurations make their way through sales and engineering to the production team. You can eliminate the time-wasting back-and-forth that causes deal-threatening delays. Sales feels confident that their requested equipment will be built to customers’ exact specifications, and customers always get what they want, on time.
“Organisations that get too comfortable with the status quo are at major risk of disruption…If you’re not asking questions about how your organisation is navigating and plugging into disruption, forming new ecosystems, and tapping into open markets, then your organisation is at risk.”
“Our teams were able to take a creative hook and put a well-thought out strategy behind it in order to engage dozer customers and attract new ones.”
Overcoming the Complexity of the Sales to Manufacturing Process
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.
