Variant management

Managing an increasing volume of product variance is creating new challenges for the enterprise.

Since products are becoming increasingly individualised, production needs to respond with maximum flexibility.

Variant management from ELABO is the answer to the task at hand: For a great many variations, only a master plan is created: this is then filled with the actual product data at production runtime. The information required is taken from a repository where it needs to be entered only once – typically the ERP system. This also offers huge advantages for product maintenance work.


  • Just one master plan is created for several thousand variants
  • For each work step, workers receive real-time guidance about the respective variants from the ERP system (e.g. pick-by-light)
  • Both assembly information and testing specifications can be managed
