Author: Graham Bloom

As we prepare to say goodbye to 2020, a year which none of us could have predicted, it seems the perfect time to reflect and make preparations for a successful future. If one thing is for sure the months of ongoing disruption have taught us important lessons about efficiency and how we must be flexible to adapt our ways of working and processes.

We have gathered 5 of our top blog posts of 2020 which address some of the key factors that will help ensure 2021 is your most efficient engineering year to date!


1. What’s new in version 2.9?

Have you updated your software to the newest version 2.9? With the new version 2.9 everything is possible. Think: easier implementation of corporate standards through level management, storing QR codes via hyperlinks, and editing project data in bulk using navigators. In this blog we explore these benefits and more of using version 2.9.

2. Five reasons why you should be creating schematics with macros

No matter how different schematics may look, there will always be elements of the project which you have used in past projects. So why waste time starting from scratch? There is so much to be gained from using macros when creating schematics. In this blog we give 5 reasons as to why you should be using macros in EPLAN Electric P8.

3. Why companies such as LCA now rely on digital review processes

Do you create schematics using professional engineering software but then still use printouts or PDFs for fine tuning or updates? There is a more efficient way, and it involves the cloud-based solution, EPLAN eVIEW. In this blog you’ll discover how LCA Group benefits greatly from a digital review process, including improving collaboration via the redlining function.

4. Why you should use a digital twin

Designing control cabinets using a digital twin (also known as virtual prototyping) in a 3D digital environment helps speed up the whole process of panel building. This is because tasks such as ordering the components, determining drill holes and positioning components has already been completed in the design stage.This blog discusses the many advantages of virtual protoyping to increase efficiencies throughout the whole value chain.
