c-Com – Efficient and innovative life-cycle management of C parts
On the c-Com platform, customers and suppliers can maintain and share all their relevant tool data on the basis of clearly defined rules and access rights. The data for the cooperation are therefore always up-to-date. They are placed onto the platform just once by the owner of the data, irrespective of the number of users. The right data is then available to all actors at all sites at any time. This gives companies an unprecedented transparency.
Applied technical solutions could be compared within the company, for example the tools and machining parameters for the same workpieces produced at different sites. Standardisations and benchmarking strategies are thus supported. Stocks and procurement strategies could be harmonised and optimised at significantly reduced costs. The interaction between purchasing and production and between purchasing and the suppliers is greatly simplified. Suppliers have the opportunity to provide more selective and new services.
In cooperation with SAP, MAPAL will present the beta-version of this platform at the AMB 2016 in Stuttgart.
