BERLIN/SEATTLE, 31 March 2015 – Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer is introducing Pacelab Cabin 7, the aircraft configurator by Berlin software provider PACE. While earlier versions of the tool were used by individual teams only, the upgrade is deployed across departments to support the entire customization process of the E-Jet E2 family from first customer contact to production hand-over.
Pacelab Cabin 7 will provide Embraer teams with all customization options available for a specific aircraft, from which they can interactively set up the cabin configuration to airline requirements. To avoid unnecessary revisions, the software automatically checks technical feasibility and compliance with FAR/JAR certification standards. The configuration can be displayed in high-quality 3D to show airline clients instantly how their choices affect the look of the cabin. 3D illustrations of the aircraft interior are also included in the manufacturer’s commercial proposals and contractual documentation.
Also part of Embraer’s software package is Pacelab Data Management, a central repository for managing the life cycle of customer projects and catalog options, which allows keeping tabs on their revision history and current status.
"We are committed to providing excellent service and maximum transparency to our customers. Using a uniform software tool to create and process configuration information from start to finish helps us to maintain efficient collaborative work processes and to deliver consistent and reliable results," says Fernando Antônio Araújo Oliveira, Senior Program Manager E-Jets E2 at Embraer.
