CREALIS® – product configuration

Clearly offer product variance and enable customization

CREALIS® optimally brings together the customer's individual requirements and the company-wide product knowledge. The generic concepts used allow for a variety of content and technical application scenarios. The variety of products remains consistent and clear throughout the configuration. The combination of parts and packages into technically correct products is determined by rules, dependencies and properties. The consequences, contradictions and alternatives are presented in a comprehensible way. The configured product is visualized dynamically in 2D or 3D and the user-friendly interface provides intuitive navigation and interactive configuration.
