Digi­ta­li­sa­tion as the answer to the skills shortage

Nowa­days, many jobs in the water industry are vacant. However, the chal­lenges and tasks are beco­ming ever greater. With our engi­nee­ring plat­form ISO by zahnen, we have the answer to close this gap.

Our digital employees use the plat­form to support our custo­mers in a wide range of use cases, such as desig­ning systems, tende­ring and prepa­ring offers, through to preli­mi­nary plan­ning, detailed engi­nee­ring, auto­ma­tion of systems and docu­men­ta­tion. By using the plat­form, exis­ting staff can work much more effi­ci­ently. Moreover the inde­pen­dence from indi­vi­dual personal know­ledge is signi­fi­cantly increased. This avoids mistakes and reduces a great deal of effort through automation.

Indi­vi­dual Stan­dard Optimisation

What does “ISO by zahnen” mean?

‘ISO’ stands for ‘Indi­vi­dual Stan­dard Opti­mi­sa­tion’, which means that each customer receives their own solu­tion tail­ored to their requi­re­ments (e.g. tech­no­logy, soft­ware, processes). This solu­tion is deve­loped by digi­ta­li­sing and auto­ma­ting the customer’s knowledge.

Digi­ta­lised know­ledge means regu­la­tions, libraries/databases and the auto­mated crea­tion of docu­ments. The customer receives an intui­tive inter­face that guides the user through the confi­gu­ra­tion of the project and guaran­tees consis­t­ently high quality thanks to the digital regu­la­tions. Docu­ments (quota­tion, circuit diagram, 3D model, PLC programme, etc.) are auto­ma­ti­cally created by the plat­form based on this data. The plat­form can also carry out process engi­nee­ring designs and complex calculations.

Your chal­lenges — our solutions

Get started with your digital employees — specia­lised to your requirements

In order to face these chal­lenges, we have been working on these issues for years and have met them through digi­ta­li­sa­tion, stan­dar­di­s­a­tion and auto­ma­tion. This has resulted in the ISO by zahnen plat­form, which we improve conti­nuously. Our digital employees use the plat­form to support our custo­mers in their daily work and perform important tasks.
