Automation and digitalisation are essential building blocks for Industry 4.0 and their implementation depends on the deployment of well-designed and well-manufactured control cabinets and switchgear. To support this need, EPLAN has researched ways in which the design and manufacture of control cabinets and switchgear can be made easier and more efficient.
The key to better communication between design and production achieve a data-driven operations strategy. Design and production are the two main areas within a products' value chain, but unfortunately personnel working in these two areas often undergo different training and adopt different working practices and methods. As a result, design engineers frequently have in mind production processes that are different from those which are eventually adopted. To put it plainly, the design and production teams both seek the same outcome, but set about achieving it in different ways - which often leads to problems, errors and inefficiencies.
