Modularisation as the foundation for standards and automation

This year’s the EF|A – Eplan Forum for Automated Engineering event will be taking place in a hybrid format. As in previous years, the focus will be on modularisation, standardisation and automation.

These topics are of burning importance for both management and users in machine and plant system engineering – after all, modularisation is the key to standardisation and, ultimately, a higher degree of automation. Attendees, both on-location and online, will receive tips and strategies for taking their personal next step on the path to automated engineering.

From 28-29 September 2022, both live and online visitors can network with other industry experts during the EF|A Forum. Eplan has created a special space for this because the full potential of automation thrives from practical examples of it, user reports from around the world, and, not least, personal dialogue amongst attendees. The event will be streamed live – and international attendees can take advantage of the simultaneous translation on offer.

Eplan’s director of go-to-market management, Harold van Waardenburg, says: “If you modularise your machine or plant system from the start of the development process, you’re laying the foundation for standardisation.”

Eplan’s director of business development, Achim Potthoff, adds: “The goal is the highest degree of automation possible, which we are advancing with tools and with methodologies working together with our customers.”

Event attendees will even be able to experience first-hand how this works in practice. Achenbach Buschhütten will be presenting on the topic of ‘Making the product fit for digitally networked value creation’, which it has successfully implemented with a modular construction kit. Odego CEO Dr Sandra Szech will be talking about ‘How to make building block development a success’ and sharing her experiences with the methodical development and evaluation of modular systems, amongst other topics. Aartec Engineering and Sollich will also be giving insights into practical applications for people attending both on location and online.

Additional companies, including Grundfos and CadCabel, will also be communicating their practical applications with EF|A attendees. Eplan experts will be supplementing these examples with methods and strategies for modularisation, standardisation and for automated engineering using the eBuild, Eplan Cogineer and EEC solutions.

One of the highlights for online attendees is the ‘hands-on sessions’, during which users can try out Eplan software for themselves. Eplan partners including Configit, Encoway and SAE will also be represented with presentations and virtual partner stands, and are available both onsite and online for questions and answers.
