The Product Builder is a powerful design solution for the production of parametric constructions with extruded profiles like fire doors, sun protection, balustrades, conservatories. It is a solution for manufacturers that do not use calculation or drawing software, allowing constructions with profiles to be made as parametric models based on scripts. The models allow the manufacturer to generate machine data, barcode labels, DXF drawings, numerous reports and, if necessary, give feedback to the manufacturers ERP system. From Product Builder the production lists are sent straight to the machine work floor enabling focus on the following tasks.
Using extremely powerful scripting models and algorithms, this software provides endless possibilities when it comes to executing design ideas and turning them into drawings and production lists.
Industries that produce large numbers of similar but customized products can benefit from using our Product Builder, though the ease of implementation and execution is a great tool for manufacturers of any size.
Barcode scanners are an indispensable tool for window and door manufacturers. Smartphones and smart devices are playing an increasingly important role, when equipped with the A+W Smart Companion App for the A+W Cantor software solution. Smartphone cameras allow barcodes to be scanned directly and to display additional information. The app supports materials management and requests, dynamic forms (the customer customizes their own scenarios in Production), and increases digitalization. The intuitive user interface requires no training, which helps save time and money.
A+W Smart Companion for A+W Cantor is currently available for Production and Stock.
In the dispatch area of production, the app can book finished elements and accessories onto racks while also assigning them to an area. This allows several elements to be scanned simultaneously in so-called continuous mode (camera mode).
As a mobile info terminal (read mode), the app provides support by displaying, for example, the production status of individual order items. This provides information at all times during production.
The stock area allows goods receipt, material transfer postings, and inventory postings to be completely processed via the app. For example, an overview of all counted items can be displayed and found directly in A+W Cantor.
