Panel Builder System Integrator

December 12, 2018

For many design engineers, one of the central, day-to-day challenges is getting and providing information. Syngineer, an innovative cloud solution from EPLAN and its affiliate CIDEON, can help master this challenge. The software accelerates and simplifies coordination in engineering – specifically between mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and PLC/software. The system ensures better collaboration by promoting cross-departmental information exchange. In doing so, it further reduces the number of manual tasks, that often occur at the last minute thus making them particularly costly.

Simple system for more transparency

Syngineer takes a project-based approach for users. The application is simple: “Connectivity between the MCAD software and EPLAN Electric P8 through Syngineer can be set up quickly and is easy to use,” says Max Lützel, Team Lead Consulting Syngineer. “After a short orientation, colleagues are able to find out, for instance, if a motor in the design was changed later in the process.”

With Syngineer, electrical engineers initially get an additional navigator within their familiar working environment. This navigator networks them across departments to their colleagues from mechanical engineering. The two design departments can exchange engineering information bidirectionally. With this integration, the mechanical and electrical design engineers continue to conveniently work in their own systems and to coordinate the latest developments, for instance via the integrated chat function. Alternatively, they can also be informed of changes via e-mail. Settings are easy to customise via the notification management system.

Central overview of development status

Syngineer labels a task’s or request’s current processing status. Subsequent changes in the development process and their status are also visible to all relevant employees. The system further provides information about which employees have made which changes. Project managers thereby have a global overview of the project and can also outline post hoc customer requirements in a central location. The software is currently available in German and English - further software languages will follow. Access via internet browser, smartphone, tablet or notebook is naturally supported – a must in the era of globalisation.

Scalable system

Another significant practical advantage of the cloud technology foundation is that external partners, customers and suppliers can also be easily integrated into the development process. An additional benefit of the cloud architecture is the flexible user scalability. Companies can vary the number of users at any time as needed and provide access to additional departments including production, commissioning and maintenance.

In Conclusion

Syngineer ensures efficient information exchange, saving both time and increasing product quality. The automatic creation of sensor/actuator lists with Syngineer offers even more savings potential, with companies reducing working times by 30 percent, not to mention the added benefit of increased documentation quality.

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.

How Omron's Robotic Solutions Increased a Chocolate Company's Production By 40%

OmronAt BOLCi Bolu Chocolate, a Turkish manufacturer of elegant truffles and other delicacies, the opportunity arose for some improvements to its production system. With over 300 employees and a 20,000-square-meter factory, BOLCi has a product list of over 800 different items and produces and average of 200 tons of chocolate items each month.

BOLÇİ’s guarantee to its customers is that its chocolate is never sullied by human touch during production or packaging. In order to maintain this immaculate status and reach increasingly high production targets, the chocolate manufacturer turned to Omron and system integrator Innovas to devise an automated solution for its packaging line.
