Options and Variants

Our satisfied customers

Having decided to deploy a new EDS design environment, and after determining our database structure and setup, it didn’t take long for E3.series to start helping us reduce engineering time, so we can more easily meet our custom vehicle manufacturing deadlines. We are now in a position to serve our customers more effectively by meeting a business objective to turn around option change requests much faster

Chris DarringtonElectrical Design Engineer, Dennis Eagle

The days of non-intelligent drawing packages are over. We need better tools that can offer design reuse, bring about standardization, and can still deliver flexibility - like E3.series. We also need partners like Zuken who are willing to listen, learn, communicate and be proactive in regards to meeting our needs.

Norman MacDonaldUK Engineering Director, Honeywell

The most important argument in favor of E3.series is its strength in the area of options and variants. Up to 80% of all our variants can now be represented in the feature tree of one single project.
