Collaborative Engineering

Everything is better in a team – especially when your tools are in on the act. Let’s look at visualization as an example: a user experience expert is creating the user interface. At the same time, another employee is defining the variables and dealing with reports. The start-up date is edging ever closer and, because time is getting tight, you decide to add a few members to the team. As a result, even the language tables for translating the project and the measurement unit switches are ready on time.


  • Speedier project completion
  • Flexible project coordination based on team members’ expertise and availability
  • Optimum organization for large-scale projects

With multi-user projects, several users can work on one project at the same time without getting in each other’s way. A central SQL Server hosts the projects.



Efficient scheduling for your project team

With its multi-user project feature, zenon enables several users to work on the same project at the same time – all without getting in each other’s way. This approach significantly reduces engineering time and speeds everything up, particularly in large-scale projects. When you’re working in project teams, you can split up tasks according to your team members’ specialist expertise. Driver experts, user experience specialists, and other experts can work together in parallel. Teams can be added to at any time and reorganized. Even employees from different sites can access the same project, allowing for simple project planning and control.



Multi-user projects in zenon

With zenon’s distributed engineering functions, you can distribute duties within your team and make efficient use of the time you have. The projects are managed on a central SQL Server, enabling several people to work on one project at the same time. However, the solution always ensures that objects can only ever be modified by one user. Whenever a person is working on an object, it is checked out and locked for everyone else. This helps to eliminate overlapping or double configuration. Once the object has been checked back in, all other users have immediate access to the latest version of the project. Standalone projects can also be converted into multi-user projects at any time at just the touch of a button – and vice versa. Your projects, your choice.
