This module makes use of the advantages
of the XML-based file format "Scalable Vector Graphics"
(SVG). The PlusParts SVG parser module links up with the back
office and automatically generates map files. This reduces
the time needed for mapping out drawings and the lengthy and
error-prone process of manual mapping is automated using the
SVG parser module and thus becomes faster. The user's role
is thereby reduced to that of 'controller' and he will only
have to manually intervene in the task of editing drawings
in exceptional cases.
The SVG parser module is based on
an AI-supported rule generator capable of handling 'mixed'
drawings on which, for example, some items are not to be mapped.
In addition to this, the system is capable of learning by
itself, i.e. the more diagrams you work on, the quicker the
system becomes. The entire workflow of the SVG parser module
is based upon the zero-error principle, i.e. the system will
attempt to intercept any errors the user may make during workflow
and, failing that, notify the user of any errors that occur
enabling him to rectify these himself in a single operation.
This subsequently avoids the lengthy manual search for, and
rectification of possible errors.
Our experience from major projects
with over 10 000 drawings has left its mark on the design
of our SVG parser module. When we designed the workflow, emphasis
was put on usability; despite it being potentially monotonous
work, the design of our module enables you to use it for lengthy
periods of time without becoming too tired. Please remember
that the SVG
and SVG parser modules can only be used
for spare parts diagrams which already exist in a vector-based
