e-Con CPQ visualization options range from pictures visualizing user choice to comprehensive 3D visualization. Below, we beam light on the top examples in e-Con CPQ:
- Images supporting user choices. Users can visualize product options in diverse ways, including pictures, visual lists and drop-downs, and informative pop-ups.
- Graphical images help ensure that users enter correct variables, such as measurements for products. With measurement in particular, it’s almost impossible to describe the exact measurement required. An image speaks to the imagination of the user, which let him quickly understand and enter data.
- 2D (layered) dynamic display of images for a configuration object. All images are dynamically generated based on the product you are configuring. This could be a single image, composition, or dynamically layered. A single image can be displayed after a choice is entered in a configuration. Each choice can trigger another picture. A layered image can be displayed dynamically, which is ideal for changing colors or small options—for example, changing a saddle on a bicycle. e-Con also supports compositions, which are multiple images, selected and composited using rules-based logic. An example could be a picture of a desk and when you select a chair you see the chair appear in the picture of the already selected chair.
- 2D drawings, e-Con CPQ Studio enables users to generate rule-based simple drawings and text. Often used within furniture configurations for simple edits and with labels, printing apparel right text on label or shirt.
- Graphic Library, texts and measurements. Rules enable users to instruct e-Con CPQ so that the software “knows” what a specific configuration should look like.
- 3D visualization, Show dynamic 3D objects based on a configuration. User choices are reflected in real-time within the visualization.
- CAD. Thanks to e-Con CPQ’s open architecture, it’s easy to connect with CAD suppliers. When users make choices, e-Con can send those changes to feed a CAD model, which in turn generates CAD output: in DXF and other formats.
- HoloLens, Though still be in prototype phase, users will be able to combine e-Con with HoloLens to configure a virtual object and see how it fits into a setting/environment.
