Mapping individual customer requirements fully automatically

The ideal solution for manufacturing companies with a complex, variant-related product structure

The MODUS CONFIGURATOR integrated in Microsoft Dynamics NAV is especially suitable for the production and trade of products that have to fulfill specific customer requirements in terms of dimensions, materials, colors and equipment. This solution is especially applicable for the requirements of manufacturing companies with a complex, variant-related product structure but also for trading companies with product variants. Despite a very large product variety processes are rationalized, sources of error are eliminated, business processes are made transparent and the product quality is enhanced. The base of the solution is a classification system which makes all basic functions available for the variant system in order to define the properties and equipment. When entering orders the user is supported effectively as the system predefines standard values and proposes accepted designs. Then, the system fully generates parts lists and work plans, checks the availability of components and identifies manufacturing costs, prices, production times and capacities.

Fast price calculation

The price calculation with the MODUS CONFIGURATOR allows archiving base prices based on defined standard specifications. In addition, a mark-up and deduction calculation is performed via the entered characteristics with the help of amounts, percentage values or via values calculated by formulas. Variant price lists can be transferred quickly and without any problems to another price list with a reference and a factor.
