WSCAD’s E-CAD software platform Suite X has delivered the result for automation system builder Bruckmann Steuerungstechnik GmbH (BSG), based in Uedem north of Düsseldorf, Germany. BSG needed a solution that would interface with its own in-house developed configuration software and an established ERP system to deliver an intuitive, easy to use design and specification tool. BSG is a control technology integrator, automating systems for process and manufacturing industries from single machines to full production lines. Author of its own software suite, the capability of BSG’s ONEsystems platform includes machine automation and control, data acquisition and vision across the automated operation, as well as software integration between ERP-level IT and real machine data. BSG demanded a CAD package which could manage the design of its automation integration projects, and crucially, it also had to integrate with ONEsystems and be fully interoperable. Aware of the track record in deploying time-saving CAD packages for industrial automation solutions, BSG engaged with WSCAD with the aim of developing a partnership to create optimum automation design and streamline the design and development process. The key challenge for BSG is time to market. Whether a new project or retrofit, BSG’s customers demand quick project delivery in order to optimise productivity. Integration with ONEsystems’ ERP system would be vital in order to reduce time on data transfer, management and accuracy. ERP integration would also increase efficiency of the project planning and procurement processes.
