Automate manufacturing and shipping instructions. Infor CPQ creates bills of materials and manufacturing instructions dynamically and can integrate With CSI (or your Existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) system) to store these instructions with production orders. You can also have the system generate 2D drawings or 3D CAD models of products and assemblies to clearly show the shop floor exactly what to build so you increase yield and reduce scrap. These dynamic instructions and drawings can eliminate a substantial number of errors that can creep into even a well-run manufacturing or distribution process.

Infor CPQ gives you the flexibility to maximize the door and window options presented to the customer, while ensuring that the final configuration results in a door or window that is possible to manufacture.
