eCl@ss BEST PRACTICE: ENGINEERING
THE STANDARD OF THE FUTURE – THE WORLD’S KNOWLEDGE
Process digitization and the global networking of the business world is generating tremendous pressure to innovate. Industry 4.0 offers a vision of self-organizing and automated production and logistics processes – which need a common basis.
eCl@ss provides a compelling response to these challenges. As a simple, machine-readable, one-to-one, ISO-compliant and yet open system, the standard is growing faster than all others. And because it is defined by its users, it is vital and based on real-world practices. eCl@ss is built on the world’s expert knowledge.
Automotive component manufacturer Phoenix Contact utilized proprietary customer-side interfaces in its development of engineering processes. The company reached out to eCl@ss in order to be able to manage these uniformly. Because the standard is established and highly developed, engineering data can be fed from a single source, and multiple versions can be supported in parallel. The data storage takes place centrally, and the customer can make use of this flexibly, whether for databases or catalogs.
