Engineering Automation

Fully developed CIDEON product rules.

Engineering Automation

Engineering Automation is a software service package combining a simple user interface with the required engineering tool to create an automated solution.

Engineering Automation

Automatically design individual product variants.

Use Engineering Automation to design fully-automated individual product variants. At the "push of a button" scale your designs in quotation and order creation processes. Autodesk Inventor is the starting point for building parameterized components as well as standard components and part families. Inventor iLogic then generates rule-based component, assembly and drawing documents. Subsequent use of additional sophisticated automation tools generates the highest productivity gains. The bottom line is once developed, always available.



Product Complexity

Use Engineering Automation as an answer to the continuously growing complexity of products and their development. Automating engineering processes at an early stage minimizes sales and after-sales costs.

Variant Diversity

Use Engineering Automation to accelerate processes along the entire value chain and increase productivity in spite of the significant increase in the number of variants.

Small Production Quantities

Use Engineering Automation to meet the ambitious vision of mass customization. Link intelligent process optimization with agile software.


Simple Component Standards

Use Autodesk Inventor Parametric to easily define component standards for your team. The same database is then always used for parametric components.

Parametric models

Use Autodesk Inventor Scripting iLogic and improve parametric models with product logic to create intelligent and flexible design templates – easy to use and seamlessly integrated into Autodesk Inventor.


Visual Product Configuration

Use Autodesk Forge Engineering Automation models in web-based product configurators to create custom documentation for your partners and customers.


Rule-Based Automation

Use rule-based automation from design through to the drawing of individual parts. Achieve higher productivity in engineering and precision in quotation and order processes.

CIDEON Support

Quality, speed and reliability in engineering play a crucial role in your success. All-round services are therefore as important as committed specialists and powerful software.

CIDEON Support gives you quick and easy answers to your questions, detailed information about products and solutions, and helpful tips and tricks.

Managed Services take us one step further: This service enables us to maintain an overview of your CAD/PDM/PLM environment and thus ensure your software's long-term operational reliability. You can then always be sure that your systems are always up to date and operable.
