Sales configuration, product configuration and complexity management: the right IT tool for your needs

Which are the right IT tools for your company in regards to sales configuration, product configuration and complexity management?

As you offer different variants to your customers, we also believe: The same solution will not fit everyone. Being experts for complexity management, we at MB Collaborations know the requirements of the IT environment well. We have an overview of all possible IT tools on the market which we can apply together with our external partners in order to achieve complexity reduction in your company.

Thanks to our experience from numerous projects, we are able to support you in selecting the best solution for sales configuration, product configuration or complexity management.

For the sales configuration, the primary objective is determining what can be offered to the customer at which price (CPQ, Configure Price Quote).

Based on this decision, the components of the product can be configured. These systems may be used by engineers and product developers who may retrieve drawings from the IT tool, or by Production requiring parts lists and assembly drawings.

The tools for complexity management will support portfolio analysis, modularization and complexity reduction on product level.

We will focus on the needs of your company, define requirements and reveal gaps. At the same time, we will identify the interfaces to your current IT environment. If needed, we can support you in the development of your own tools and databases or select solutions available on the market for you.

When consulting about suitable IT tools, we combine concepts of complexity management with your IT solution and will support you in the following areas:

  • Visualization and analysis of complexity
  • Product configuration for sales, production and development
  • Connection to PDM/PLM and ERP systems
  • Finding and connecting product information in semantic networks
  • Configuration and creation of product and production documentation

We know the strengths and weaknesses of the individual solutions and will gladly support you in selecting a suitable IT tool or the right development partner for your own solution.
