THE TOOLSET FOR YOUR PRODUCT OPTIMIZATION PROCESSES
Global competition makes continuous product optimization one of the biggest challenges for companies. Information on competitors is collected, ideas for optimization are developed and implementation of measures are tracked. The id-x | platform helps you to implement and digitalize these processes effectively and successfully.
ONE PLATFORM – MANY SOLUTIONS
The id-x | platform is a software solution and toolset, tailored to the needs and requirements from different areas of product optimization.
Through the innovative structure of the database system, through the high degree of flexibility and through intelligent features, the id-x|platform can be a solution for one area or even several areas. By digitalizing the processes, the administrative effort is extremely reduced so that you can use your resources more effectively and thus ensure a short-term ROI. In addition, the id-x | platform becomes your company’s internal knowledge database.
The use cases and processes at a glance
GENERATE KNOWLEDGE FROM DATA
Data on measurements, ratings or photos of products are available on the market for every company. Every company can acquire the same data and use it for itself.
But data alone does not deliver added value. Valuable knowledge is only created by enriching the data with the know-how and experience of the company’s own employees. In addition, internal knowledge is often not or only insufficiently made available to other employees. Valuable knowledge is thus lost or simply inaccessible.
Modern companies are making it their goal to drive forward the digitization of processes and workflows. In doing so, procured data is enriched with proprietary knowledge and solutions are made available centrally and to all relevant departments.
The innovative and highly networkable id-x | platform helps you to realize these goals. Through interfaces, comfortable features and automatisms, simple data becomes valuable knowledge, which you can make available individually in the whole company.
SUPPORT CORPORATE GOALS
Plan, Do, Check, Act, the PDCA circle for continuous improvement with the id-x|platform:
PLAN / create, plan and manage projects
DO / collect information, ideas, improvement potentials with mobile devices of the employees
CHECK / check and enrich information with in-house know-how
ACT / Build a knowledge database and share knowledge within the company
For the digitization of processes it is not enough to just store information digitally on servers. Digitization with the id-x|platform has the goal of
the easy searching and finding of information
the continuous availability of knowledge and solutions throughout the company
the possibility of global collaboration and the standardization of terminologies and processes
In addition, information, whether external or internal, can be enriched with the company’s own know-how, evaluated, classified and processed into solutions.
A major cost factor in companies today, despite advancing digitization, is the administrative effort involved in data management. Collecting, preparing and sharing data takes a lot of time. With the helpful features of the id-x|platform this effort is reduced enormously to use resources more efficiently. Make your success measurable for a tangible ROI.
Due to the pressure of competition, companies are continuously challenged to make their products better and better and their processes more and more efficient and to use the advantages of digitalization.
Digitization helps to make knowledge transparent within the company. Solutions for improving products do not have to be developed several times, but are available to the development departments. New ideas and innovations are promoted and can be processed until they are implemented.
iTEMs – A MESH OF DATA OBJECTS
For high flexibility and various application
The id-x | platform is based on a structure of networked data objects (iTEMs) which, due to their flexibility and simplicity, can map many use cases from product development. Through the iTEMS any number and any size of data objects can be defined. Thus your use case can be mapped very precisely. In addition, users can create iTEMs themselves or modify existing ones.
iTEMs can be connected with each other in any way to map real use cases. For example, products can be linked to ideas and additionally to technologies, which in turn are linked to technology clusters or to assemblies / components.
iTEMs and clusters are the essential part of the id-x | platform. They make the id-x | platform a tool that seamlessly integrates into your development processes and immediately generates added value.
work the way you are used to, BUT JUST A LITTLE better
Examples of id-x | platform features
Quick comparison with only a few clicks
1. enter search term, 2. and compare found results 3. with a click.
Compare your data easily, no matter in which area of the database you are. You will be amazed how fast the id-x | platform compares your data.
Convenient analysis of your data
Compare any kind and any number of data with each other. In edit mode you can change data in the overview. In each comparison you can export your data as an Excel file and export files and images directly.
With the CSV Chart function, entire measurement series can be flexibly displayed and analyzed as a diagram.
All numerical values or selection lists can be displayed as pie charts, bar charts, line charts, radar charts or area charts.
Individual iTEMS (vehicle, project, idea, etc.) can be set as a reference and compared with others in the tabular overview. Deviations from the reference value are displayed graphically in an easy-to-understand manner. Various options can be used to define rules for when a value is displayed in green or red.
Design the user interface
id-x start pages allow you to structure your data individually tailored to your organization. Define the external appearance yourself and represent your department, for example.
Start pages can be defined individually for different product areas or user groups. Thus, everyone has the access to data that is permitted and desired.
Layout and content can be adjusted by authorized users at any time.
Determine what can be seen on your page, iTEM lists, news, favorites, FAQs, movies, URLs, etc.
Control the access to your data
Create as many users as necessary and assign them a user group. Through this you can define exactly which products, projects, technologies, components or ideas are available.
Thus you have full control over your data and can determine exactly who should have no, read, write, edit, delete and administrator rights.
Create and customize reports
With the id-x PowerPoint Template Engine you can create several templates with different layouts yourself.
The native output format allows you to customize data and charts after exporting them to MS PowerPoint.
Do you want a simple tabular output of the data or a comprehensive report including charts and comparisons? With id-x | platform both is possible.
Flexible, individual and intelligent. You can enter parts according to different structures, such as disassembly, fixed parts, assemblies or functional structures. Input is possible from all web-enabled devices (desktop, tablet, phone) and is supported by assistance functions with automatic part suggestions based on known disassemblies. The search and evaluation of parts or assemblies across all teardowns, the comparison of complete products, assemblies and individual parts as well as the comparison of entire parts lists including structure drill-down (multi-level comparison) become possible. With the improved Excel import function, images can be uploaded automatically and entire imports can be undone.
