Future-oriented – use resources efficiently
ZVK GmbH particiaptes in a Bavarian joint research project (BayVFP) run by the FreeDie ZVK GmbH nimmt an einem Bayerischen Verbundforschungsprogramm (BayVFP) run by the state of Bavaria on the subject "Digitization" funding line.
During the project an approach to translation between article data and product data is being developded. Therefore we can manage article data for internal use and product data for external systems. On the basis of the translation approach various AI algorithms are developed and evaluated to improve disposition processes. This includes an algorithm for extracting article information from product orders, an algorithm for automatically generating rules and suggestions at product level from article data for product configurators and and an algorithm for forecasting demand using article and product data.
Next to this research program, ZVK GmbH already has taken a big step towards digitalization with the created FODH configurator.
The customer configures the required fiber optic trunk cable at https://www.easylan.en/configurator.html and when the order is completed the configuration is automatically sent to the ERP system as an order. During the transfer the parts liste and the associated work plan are created in the backround and also the available capacity ist already checked. After a short contract review, production can begin immediately.
Thanks to the use of these resources we are able to deliver a pre-assembled fiber optic trunk cable with up to 144 fibers to the customer within 5 working days. At the same time we minimize the error principle to almost zero.
