Konecranes’ PLM System Optimizes Business Efforts

PLM system

To deliver a diverse portfolio of mass-produced to custom lift products — with the growing complexity of mechanical, electrical, and electronic components — Konecranes uses the Teamcenter product lifecycle management (PLM) system to connect people and processes across the business. 

For an exclusive, inside look at how Konecranes uses Teamcenter and NX, attend this on-demand webinar, “Konecranes uses PLM tools to optimize product development, manufacturing, and service.”

To learn more about the Teamcenter Product Configurator software that Konecranes uses, attend one of these on-demand webinars: Product Customization at Scale: Reaching a Market of One Profitability or Strategies for Optimizing Product Innovation by Managing and Optimizing Product Variations.

To learn more about the Rulestream ETO software that Konecranes uses, attend one of these on-demand webinars: An Introduction to Engineer-to-Order Process Automation for Industrial Machinery using Rulestream or Create Custom Engineering Applications with Minimal Coding.

For product development, Konecranes uses the PLM system to bring together engineers across domains and disciplines, including mechanical, electrical, industrial design, automation, and finite element analysis. 

“Usually when we think about Teamcenter or NX we think about the tool. Of course what comes with the tool is the harmonized processes. Implementing a global PLM system to the different units of Konecranes also allows us at the same time to harmonize the way we conduct engineering. In addition to NX, we have Autodesk Inventor, we have SolidWorks then from the 2D side we have AutoCAD and the data is used throughout the different locations and so we have integrated all the mechanical CAD solutions to Teamcenter …on the electrical CAD side we are focused on Zuken.”

Konecranes manages product variability with Teamcenter Product Configurator, along with Rulestream for engineer-to-order products. 

“We are now implementing Teamcenter Product Configurator. It’s closer to the product data and it offers more features compared to other product configurators which are quite commonly ERP focused or supply focused.”

With a multi-domain bill of material (BOM) management that integrates all the related product information in Teamcenter, Konecranes can communicate and coordinate from engineering to downstream decision-makers like procurement, manufacturing, and service.
