An application example from D+D+M / pcn.global
When a new standard is introduced there is always a kind of chicken-egg problem. In the case of smartPCN the recipients of PCN and PDN would highly benefit from a digital format. However the manufacturers who have to create PCN/PDN have their own tools and processes and are usually not so much interested to change them. If nobody provides smartPCN then nobody wants to create tools to process them.
This is the reason we created the pcn.global database. To stay in the picture from above we are the chicken that produces smartPCN data from classic PCN/PDN provided by the manufacturers, our food. We accept all types of PCN/PDN also from our customers to transfer them into smartPCN.
Of course it is great to have an egg, but in order to consume it, you need a transport from the chicken to your breakfast table. This is the role of pcn.cockpit.
PCN/PDN management with smartPCN is so much easier than any other method before:
What is the experience of the users of smartPCN with pcn.global and pcn.cockpit?
“One engineer does the job of three engineers before but with three times of PCN/PDN”
“The coverage of PCN is much higher because we receive information about 2nd sources we did not get before”
“I can do tasks now in minutes which took me days before”
“We couldn’t barely manage this with spreadsheets anymore. This is so much easier and transparent. No more email ping pong to sort things out.”
