A configurator is used to determine the rules for how a product can be assembled. The output from DCX++ includes price, production time, CAD-drawing, lists of articles and restrictions.
As soon as a salesman has made an estimate and submitted an offer to a customer, information is available about material usage, manufacturing time, cost of manufacturing, possible customization, availability, etc.
A salesman can immediately inform a customer as to whether the request for the item is possible, together with the price and other possible costs/effects, such as freight, delivery date, etc., that the configuration may entail. With a connection to SolidWorks, a 3D model of the item is available.
In contrast to most business systems, the configurator manages dynamic structures:
DCX++ can be used in configuring all types of products in which the customer can customise dimensions, accessories, and the like. Such products could be doors, cars, caravans, trailers, boats and industrial machines, etc.
