TOOLS & SERVICES
Dramatically enhancing your efficiency and profitability.
ENTERPRISE ENGINEERING AUTOMATION
Companies with complex, engineer-to-order products that require engineering input can benefit from engineering automation. They have an opportunity to transform the way they do business by automating a large part of their sales and order engineering processes, offering dramatic benefits unreachable by other means.
Do your engineer-to-order products require too much engineering to sell and deliver?
Does engineering kill your margins?
Have you encountered constraints from your current CPQ (configure-price-quote) strategy?
Do you want to move beyond CPQ with EPQ (engineer-price-quote)?
If so, you can benefit from enterprise engineering automation.
Engineering automation captures and automatically applies the repetitive drudgery, the rote calculations, the countless iterations of tweaking a configuration needed to meet customer requirements. It incorporates your corporate tribal engineering knowledge including rules-of-thumb and engineering guidelines.
Companies that provide complex products or services turn to engineering automation to slash overhead and to maintain a leadership role in their markets.
By incorporating engineering knowledge in a visual configuration app, leading companies have broken barriers between themselves and their customers and have increased quality and customer satisfaction. And they’ve slashed the time required for the technical overview of their sales and order processes, from days or weeks to minutes.

Engineering Automation and ETO Consultants
We partner with our customers in the design, implementation, delivery and training of extremely powerful systems. And we’re flexible – if you want mentoring only, we’re happy to do that. If you want a turnkey system, we’re ready.
Engineering Intent has improved sales and engineering at dozens of companies large and small. Decades of experience allow us to guide clients as they specify, develop, prove out, and deploy effective automated systems.
Here are a few of the domains and needs:
Here are a few of the domains and needs:
Automated configuration of many elements of electrical power generation and distribution, from turbines to transformers, to switchgear, busbars, and more
Thermoplastic injection mold design automation, including hot-half and cavity design
Elements and complete elevator system configuration, including door equipment, hoist machinery, and complete elevator installations
Industrial fans, ventilation, heat exchangers, coils, and air handling system engineering, configuration, and specification
Custom curtain wall, window wall, door and window systems from residential to large-scale commercial development
Oil and gas equipment configuration and engineering: production, land and sea infrastructure, processing and delivery systems
Material handling system engineering automation, from customized conveyors to warehouse rack systems and more
Configuration and design of large-system cooling towers
See more examples of sales and order engineering automation at our Knowledge Bridge product website.
Engineering Intent uses industry-leading automation systems to build robust, highly effective enterprise engineering automation solutions for our clients. In addition, we have created the cloud-based Knowledge Bridge ETO and visual configuration platform, enabling the development of a new generation of web-based product configuration systems.
Knowledge Bridge is the premier platform for capturing and automating engineering, configuration, costing, manufacturing, and other rules. In addition, Engineering Intent provides migration software and expertise for customers that have invested in the Autodesk Inventor ETO platform (now discontinued).
Knowledge Bridge enables the deployment of automated product configuration systems, removing significant cost and inefficiencies from quote- and order-engineering processes.
Rule-based systems go beyond CPQ limitations, providing true engineered solutions for complex products.
All of the cooling tower framing and elements that you see here (and beyond) were automatically designed in minutes using a design automation system implemented by Engineering Intent.
Knowledge Bridge Service, Sales, and Development Partners
Engineering Intent has key partners that provide design automation and product configuration solutions based on the state-of-the-art Knowledge Bridge platform. Visit our Knowledge Bridge Partners Page for more information.
Systems Integration Partner
Engineering Intent is a Solutions Integration Partner (SI Partner) for Siemens PLM Software (SPLM) solutions for Rulestream. We work hand-in-hand with the SPLM direct sales team to provide expert Rulestream services as well as other larger-scale engineering automation projects. This includes pre-sales support as we well as post-sales delivery of services.
In the Americas, the UK, and many geographies in Asia, we are also a specialized reseller for the Rulestream product.
Autodesk Developer Network Member
Engineering Intent partners with Autodesk to deliver integrated engineering automation solutions across several Autodesk CAD systems including Inventor, Revit and AutoCAD. In addition, we provide enterprise solutions based on the Forge Design Automation platform, enabling integrated design automation solutions that work in the cloud. And we know first-hand how Autodesk’s Configurator 360 provides configurable designs directly to the hands of customers, avoiding time-consuming engineering-driven sales processes.
As an ADN member, we work with Autodesk direct sales, resellers and key customers across a variety of industries and around the globe.
As the original developer behind the now-discontinued Inventor ETO software, we now help companies that have invested in ETO solutions migrate these systems to the next generation Knowledge Bridge platform. Even though Inventor ETO was workstation-based, ETO applications can be converted, design-by-design to the cloud-based Knowledge Bridge environment. Knowledge Bridge retains a great deal of the DNA of Intent/Inventor ETO.
