Mecalac designs and manufactures heavy plant vehicles for use in construction. Their vehicles – backhoe loaders, site dumpers and compaction rollers – are each offered in several variants. They all need to work in harsh environments.
Evaluate, approve and implement change requests
Engineering is by definition a constant change process. Input from different stakeholders in the engineering and manufacturing process need to be evaluated, approved and implemented. Informed decisions around change requests require access to valid and reliable data and information, as well as workflows and role-based access and change permissions.
We can help you with
A single source of information
With powerful design data management functionality directly integrated into the user interface of our electrical and electronic authoring tools we enable engineers to perform design changes on the basis of fully validated and documented requests.
Native design data management
In electronic and electrical engineering, the requirements for engineering design data management go beyond ‘simple’ file management: Libraries and material master data of components must be kept up to date, and changes need to be propagated to variants and related designs.
PDM, PLM and ERP integration
Built on industry standard object-oriented architecture, our solutions are fully equipped to integrate into existing PDM/PLM and ERP environments, providing a true electromechanical data model with full visibility of electrical and electronic designs down to component level.
Our satisfied customers
At virtually any stage, it’s all too easy to delete a wire accidentally or to disconnect but not reconnect it within a connector. In the past, we’ve had to rely heavily on checking each other’s work – a laborious process with printouts and highlighter pens. By simulating the design using E3.eCheck we’re spared all of that. Also, the BOM is always reflecting the current design.
