All included features are only a few clicks away from the user and are made available by means of configuration; integration is supported to connect third party DNC systems, ERP and PLM.
The product is designed to have a very short learning curve and users do not require special IT expertise. From an IT perspective, it requires minimal effort: a straightforward setup procedure assists the system administrator during installation, initial configuration and connection to other systems as required, and in routine maintenance tasks, such as managing usernames and roles. The system has minimal hardware requirements and can be downsized to a standard industrial PC. Its user interface is fully web-based, meaning no installation is required and offering independence from client device operating systems.
