3D configurator for bus and train seats: the Franz Kiel project

3D configurator for bus and train seats - Franz Kiel project

Fresh news from DERWID’configuration department!
Together with our partner msg treorbis, which offers German SAP full-service consultancy, we are implementing a 3D configurator for bus and train seats in S4/Hana at Franz Kiel GmbH.

Franz Kiel GmbH, leading German manufacturer of bus and train seats, has planned to change all its ERP systems into the SAP S4/Hana in the next year and a half. The Kiel group decided to implement also the webbased UI5 quote system by msg treorbis, completed by the 3D visualization by DERWID. And so began the collaboration between the three companies.

Soon Franz Kiel will be able to intuitively and flexibly configure their products in 3D and device independent. And readily market them, starting from Turkey and reaching then all other 6 Franz Kiel’s premises around the world.

 

Since the Franz Kiel’s project started, DERWID has been implementing the 3D visualization of their seats for the SAP Configurator. Once the implementation is finished, as part of its consultancy work, DERWID will support the resources at Franz Kiel and coach them, in order they could independently handle and maintain the configurator.

Are you interested in the 3D visualization integrated in SAP S4/Hana? Contact us and ask for a demo.

Variant Configuration in SAP

5 luglio 2018 - Conferenza Configurazione di Varianti con SAP

Last 5th July DERWID attended the 11th Conference about Variant Manufacturing and Variant Management in Sankt Leon – Rot, organized by Sybit together with SAP and msg treorbis.

We explained the highlights of 3D Configuration in SAP Fiori in partnership with msg Treorbis and the unlimited possibilities of Variant Configuration.  As a matter of fact, the production of the future needs to be always faster, more individual, more intuitive to continue to satisfy the wishes of customers.

It is increasingly important to be able to easily configure and order even complex machines, tools, components or devices adapted to specific needs online. Variant configuration thus gains new and important importance – also for management.

A new office for the Austrian team in Villach

In October there were big changes for the DERWID Austrian team: we moved in a new office.

2017 has been a positive year and we have grown a lot. To highlight this positive trend, but above all due to logistical reasons – we needed more space –, we had to move to a new office.

Now you find us in Purtschellerstraße 63 in Villach, at the slopes of Mt. Dobratsch.

The new office is spacious and welcoming, in a bright and modern building.
There is more space to work in a comfortable way and be creative; and now we have a kitchen and a terrace for more relaxing breaks.

Moving in the new office in Villach

Celebrating the new office

In order to celebrate the new office and to recover from the efforts of moving, we chose an alternative way: a regenerating and invigorating hike on Mt. Dobratsch. On a wonderful sunny autumn day, in less than two hours – both experts and less experts – we reached the Gipfelhaus on the top, where we had lunch together.

Changing our perspective and chatting while hiking in the open air has been positive and motivating also for our work projects.

Celebrating new office in Villach - DERWID hike on Mt. Dobratsch

We are looking forward to seeing you in our new office in Villach!

DERWID Summit 2017

DERWID summit 2017

Get to know each other, learn and discuss in a multicultural atmosphere: this was DERWID summit 2017.

This year, DERWID group’s annual meeting was held in the evocative setting of Portogruaro (Italy): on March 16th and 17th all employees from the offices in Italy, Austria and Germany met, together with some guests, for two days of professional updating and training.

We started talking about 2016, year which ended positively for the company. After that, we introduced the many novelties that lie ahead in 2017 and you will soon discover.

During the summit we talked about strategies, roles and products, leaving enough time for internal discussion and communication, thanks to various workshops and team building activities. We tested our skills also outside the traditional working environment: during the evening, we challenged on the bowling lanes, discovering unexpected qualities of new and old colleagues.

Recharged after these days full of productive meetings and discussions, we will see us all in 2018 for next DERWID summit.
