Quote Process Management

Quote Process Management

PROLIM Quote Process Management is an in-bound quote process management solution for configure-to-order and engineer-to-order companies who need to introduce engineering business rules and intelligence into the customer order process. Ensures better quotes, repeatable processes and higher profitability on customer projects. Quoting complex products traditionally requires a large amount of manual effort from multiple groups, especially engineering. Bottlenecks develop when significant product knowledge is required to create a quote.

Traditional pricing and cost estimation techniques don’t work well for complex custom products. With the Rule stream Engineer-to-Order solution, the true costs of manufacturing and delivering a custom product are automatically factored in at the time of quotation. This eliminates cost estimation guesswork and subsequently the need for price padding to safeguard profitability. With accurate cost knowledge, unprofitable quotes can be avoided and padding can be avoided, resulting in more wins from more competitive pricing.

Quoting complex products traditionally requires a large amount of manual effort from multiple groups, especially engineering. Bottlenecks develop when significant product knowledge is required to create a quote. The Rule stream Engineer-to-Order solution from Siemens captures the latest engineering, manufacturing, and business rules and standards and uses this knowledge in an executable form to automate labor intensive tasks within the quotation process. The result is the ability to consistently produce more accurate quotes, in less time, and win more business.

The development of BOMs, 3D models and 2D drawings for inclusion in custom product proposals is time consuming and requires valuable engineering resources. The Rule stream Engineer-to-Order solution helps manufacturers improve customer satisfaction by providing complete drawings, detailed BOM and other technical information, plus 3D, color product mockups at the time of order, giving your customers confidence in the overall delivery because the order design process is automated, eliminating errors.
