"ePlan opinion"

Commentaires: With this software I spend less time for doing my job.

Avantages: This software allows you to create electric schemes easilier than others. Moreover, you can create your own data base with differents articles for making the purchase list automatically.

Inconvénients: You must to have enough knowledges about this special field for knowing how does it works and not makes mistakes.

"Vastly increased productivity"

Commentaires: We've seen improvements in time-to-produce schematics.

Avantages: My first engineer who we got using ePLAN came from a company with exclusively used AutoCAD Electrical. Within a couple of months, the engineer feels they can work 2-3x faster in ePLAN, access to the parts portal is a massive saving for us, as new products are generally available from the parts portal and do not require us to create a new intelliegent block.

Inconvénients: It feels like there are a lot of "options" which come at a great cost. Full migration to use ePLAN is going to take us multiple years due to the software investment.

"Features I like"

Commentaires: Not happy. Consider it a waste of money

Avantages: The one benefit I like is the parts database. Panel layout is a challenge.

Inconvénients: The software is extremely difficult to use and there is no clear documentation explaining the features and methods to setup the software to make it easier to use. Symbols are not correct for NFPA standards and I need to modify them constantly. Parts downloaded from Data Portal do not always have the correct macro or symbol associated with it. There does not seem to be a standard for the symbols regarding size and functions. All symbols seem to be based on IEC which does not work well for NFPA projects.

Hi Kenni, Proper training is key to using EPLAN effectively, and would directly address much of the frustration you are having with symbols. Our Data Portal contains over 950,000 parts from 300 manufacturers, and is constantly improving in size and quality. Give me a call if you'd like to chat. -Shawn O.

"Opportunity for a fresh start"

Commentaires: It took several months but now the automation features are working for me instead of against me.

Avantages: The Data Portal integration and library of manufacturer provided macros.

Inconvénients: The learning curve is steep and there are many options that are not well documented.

"Powerful, expensive"

Commentaires: EPLAN definitely eases the process of reusing designs. Copying completed designs into new projects is easier.

Avantages: 1. Getting data exported out to Excel is easy and powerful. We create different types of reports for ordering parts, labeling parts and wires, and machine tagging.
2. Electric P8 makes it easy to upconvert projects to a newer P8 version, but they are not backward compatible.

Inconvénients: 1. This is our department's largest expense.
2. Converting from a non-P8 platform to P8 is not trivial. For this reason we do not upgrade EPLAN 21 and EPLAN 5.7 projects into P8
3. Once they stop supporting a version, hope that your databases don't become corrupted.

"Tool for making electrical drawings"

Commentaires: Electric plans for delivery

Avantages: I can make electrical drawings, describing the position of each component. There is also the possibility of downloading macros from the well-known brand components such as Siemens, Weidmuller, Omron ...

Inconvénients: Some macros are damaged, and many others are not easy to find. I do not see any more factors against him.

"Good product with little to no support and incompetent staff"

Commentaires: Poor service, product is not what was sold to us.

Avantages: There is so much you can do with it that could potentially better the way you design

Inconvénients: Cannot use more then 20% of what the software is capable of due to a lack of information shared from the staff to the client due to incompetence or a mind set that once the software is sold, they stop assisting.
The after service is horrific with little to no answers.
Sloppy attitudes towards the client

"Good software and support"

Avantages: It was pretty easy to integrate into our existing database.

Inconvénients: I didn't like switching from the previous software and learning new.

Thank you Bryan.
Change is never easy, but necessary to keep up with the times. The traditional tools are not enough anymore, and tools that specialized with the tasks at hand are needed to stay competitive in this ever changing market.
Looking forward to seeing you get more and more out of EPLAN and becoming more efficient in your daily tasks. EPLAN is there to help as well. Make sure to check out the EPLAN videos on YouTube that will give you more insight in the software.
