CIDEON Discovery

CIDEON Discovery is our standardized and proven consulting methodology that supports your process requirements along the value chain, focusing on identifying your potential based on your current and future desired ways of working.

CIDEON Engineering Quick-Check

As part of the Engineering Quick Check, we perform a process analysis with regard to the systems you use. Through potential analysis workshops, we compile a comprehensive process diagram and develop an individual optimization concept. The final step is a presentation of the results to the management.

CIDEON ​Process Assessment

The CIDEON Process Assessment is used to analyze your business processes and to examine the exchange between your engineering department and all upstream and downstream areas. 

In a detailed interview phase selected departments are analyzed in detail. The results obtained are clearly presented. After a joint review of the results, they are used as a basis for defining concrete optimization steps.

The CIDEON Trainings offer you a wide range of practice-oriented training courses in the form of software training from the areas of CAD, CAM, PDM, PLM. Deepen your user knowledge to get even more out of your software, avoid errors and further increase the quality of work.
