Case Handling the smart Way - W&W Informatik and Cenit optimize case processing at Wüstenrot.
Challenge

Wüstenrot Bausparkasse [Savings & Loan] AG, a subsidiary of W&W Group (W&W AG) relies on ultra-modern automation for its case processing. For years, incoming documents have been handled via electronic inboxes. To steadily optimize customer support and service, W&W strives to continually improve the underlying processes. Recently, an expansion update was installed to realize a number of improvement wishes on the part of Wüstenrot’s IT department. The changes have accelerated case intake, optimized document routing, and enabled more comprehensive monitoring. 

Solution

In collaboration with CENIT, the W&W project team expanded the mechanisms governing the automated case file management and mapped additional technical requirements with respect to the automated rules. Routing within the ILOG was optimized, and a case history was introduced. Wüstenrot staff can see via the portal what contract or customer changes have been made as a result of what case activity, and what documents (inbox and outbox) belong to a case file. Another innovation is data enhancement within the inbox: W&W’s systems now include more customer information in the data package appended to the case file in the inbox.

Benefits
  • Implementation of new, more precise rules in automated case processing
  • Addition of personal inboxes to the inbox system
  • Data enhancement within the inbox: greater transparency thanks to a broader customer information
  • Improved monitoring for increased work efficiency

Efficiency in production with SAP PLM, Engineering Control Center and the integration of CATIA V5 and NX
Challenge

Being able to produce high-precision parts for the aerospace, marine, wind energy and transportation industry plays the key role for Janicki Industries. CENIT North America took the lead role in implementing SAP PLM together with ECTR, CATIA V5 and NX CAD integrations, which were crucial to meet the advanced CAD tools required by their customers.

Solution

As Janicki had not implemented any SAP program before the start of this project, this was the first necessary step for a successful implementation. With CENIT as development partner, Janicki was then provided with installation and configuration of ECTR with CATIA V5, while DSC took care of the NX CAD integration. Moreover, CENIT North America implemented one of its own collaboration products EnCo 4.4. Engineering Control Center was chosen as the CAD integration for both NX and CATIA V5 in order to allow all users to have the same Graphic User Interface for each CAD system.

Benefits

The main benefits archived for Janicki Industries by this project is the improved efficiency, as well as the reduced time needed in designing 2D and 3D models. The models and documents are now directly linked to the parts and real time changes can be made to 2D/3D models by using different CAD systems. Furthermore, the status network is available to identify the status of different models/parts. Particularly the Graphical User Interface is now very user friendly for all implemented CAD systems.

Why CENIT

  • Best practice from more than 25 years of experience in SAP PLM

  • Distinct understanding of the industry, processes and technology

  • SAP development partner for CATIA V5 integration in SAP

  • Strong SAP-partner network

  • Model of cooperative partnership

Implementation of 3DEXPERIENCE including ready-to-grow and cenitSPIN
Challenge

TAJCO used NX and CATIA as leading CAD systems without PDM/PLM system. There was no uniform data storage for the development sites in Germany and China and no process solutions according to auditing specifications.

Solution

An individual analysis of the PLM processes was conducted as part of the interviews of a business value assessment. The result was the optimization potential and a modular offer. The decision was made for the Ready-to-Grow solution with 3DEXPERIENCE (ENOVIA V6) incl. cenitSPIN to introduce a PLM solution for 25 CAD users and 29 project employees.

Benefits

TAJCO gains the following advantages with the Ready-to-Grow solution:

  • Process reliability through central data archive and automation of processes
  • Savings through reuse and standardization
  • Improvement of cooperation
  • cenitSPIN Configuration Engine and cenitSPIN Dashboard: Reduction of implementation and upgrade costs
Why CENIT

CENIT AG has been the current VAR for TAJCO Germany GmbH since mid-2016 and can provide excellent skills and PLM solutions for various CAD systems, AMS support and best practices for the design methodology from a single source.

About HyImpulse

HyImpulse is developing a Game-changing European Mini-Launcher for Small Satellites. Hybrid rocket engines are especially suited for a rapid entry to the market. They are inherently safe, with very low cost propellants (paraffin and liquid oxygen), allowing fast and flexible operation of the launch service. HyImpulse´s inherently safe hybrid rocket propulsion technology has been already flight proven in previous HyEnD project.

The first product will be a sounding rocket that will carry 350 kg of payload to 200 km altitude (suborbital). The sounding rocket also serves as a technology demonstrator, since it will use the main hybrid rocket engine, which is designed also for the Mini-Launcher. Further key subsystems of the Mini-Launcher are also tested in the sounding rocket. HyImpulse´s main product, a Mini-Launcher, will lift up to 500 kg to a Low-Earth orbit.
