Automatic generation of variant-specific documents

When conventionally documenting or specifying new variants, texts from existing variants must often be compiled manually and compared with the modified features.

In document generation – integrated in product configuration – text, Word, PDF and Excel documents for a variant are generated with a single click. This enables generation of consistent documents with no additional overhead. As a result, a quotation generated using this solution corresponds precisely to the configuration based on the customer’s wishes, and is not merely a general description or a manually pieced-together quotation. Generating more precise quotes in the same amount of time is a decisive competitive advantage that can significantly boost order volumes.

In addition to generating specification documents, parts lists, rating plates and value tables, document generation is also used to generate code. The generated code can control machines in order to fabricate the configuration variant or used in the variant itself.

Document generation enables you to automate the generation of variant-specific documentation and provide input for production in the form of programming code. It is thus a key element for elevating the design and production process to a new level of automation and linking processes together.

The decisive advantage of Tacton Design Automation is that it seamlessly integrates with the 3D-CAD system SolidWorks in use at BMA.
