What is Cloud Manufacturing ?

Cloud software, known as SaaS software for "software as a service", is software that can be accessed via the Internet. Their main advantages for users are that they always have the latest updates, that they do not require maintenance and that they are subscription-based.

The Cloud Manufacturing is a grouping of technologies that allow immediate production, on demand and as close as possible to the need. We are talking about software technologies, algorithms, deep learning and also additive manufacturing, more generally called industrial 3D printing.

How does BCM work, the Cloud Manufacturing of Beelse ?

All you need is a web browser and the 3D model of one of your parts to access unlimited production power. When faced with your production needs, BCM finds the production resources available in real time and capable of producing your parts to specification.

I don't have the 3D files to create my parts, what can I do?

At Beelse we offer our customers an industrial design service to enable them to have the 3D file of their part.

Why would I need to use BCM today?

Depending on your activity and inspiration, BCM is useful for :

  • be profitable on a certain type of spare parts;
  • bring eco-responsibility to your business;
  • gain market share;
  • offer new products and services to your customers;
  • Unleash creativity in your business;
  • gain independence for your procurement needs.

Is BCM complex to use?

No. BCM has been designed to give everyone the opportunity to industrialise a project. The user interface of BCM has been developed by ergonomics specialists and has been improved by its users. To learn how to use it, you can follow the tutorial directly on BCM or be accompanied by a specialist from Beelse.

I am used to producing in a way that suits me, why adopt BCM ?

BCM provides an answer to your own economic, social and environmental issues that are essential to be taken into account today. And you don't have to change the way you do things.

BCM can simply be seen as an additional tool that you add to your production floor. The advantage of BCM is that it allows, in certain cases of use, to improve the profitability of companies, but also to anticipate the future, in particular on the regulations concerning the environmental impact of companies.

Is it Beelse that deals directly with 3D printing?

No. BCM is connected either to your own production facilities at home or to the production facilities of professional additive manufacturing/industrial 3D printing providers.

How does BCM produce my parts?

BCM allows the desired quantity to be produced, at the right time and as close as possible to the place of use. It is extremely efficient for on-demand production and time-based replenishment.

What does it mean to be as close to the need or place of use as possible?

This means that BCM will find the means of production that is geographically closest to the place of delivery and capable of producing to the specifications.

How long does it take to make a part?

About 2 weeks for a new project. Approximately 3 days for a part that has already been produced on BCM.

Who are your suppliers? Can they be trusted?

Our suppliers are qualified before their production facilities are listed on BCM. Confidentiality agreements are signed with each supplier and audits can be carried out. If a supplier fails, Beelse reserves the right to remove them from the system until further notice. With BCM, you also have features that allow you to automatically engrave your coins with a serial number.

How do you ensure the quality of the parts manufactured?

A quality process is present throughout the industrialisation cycle of a project.
This is why every project begins with a homologation phase. This homologation phase is essential to create the DNA of each part. The DNA of a part is the set of data that constitutes its functional specifications and the production information that ensures its repeatability over time. With each production order from you, this data is transmitted to launch a new production.

What are the different stages of production?

As in every industrial process, there is the prototyping phase, the pre-production phase and the series. At BCM the advantage is that these three stages are combined on the same production tool, which makes each project faster and more profitable in the end.

What is Industry 4.0?

Industry 4.0 refers to a new generation of connected, robotic and intelligent factories.

These factories manage and organise their production in a different way, by converging the digital world with the means of producing physical parts. This virtualisation of design, financial management and marketing allows for the flexibility of digitally controlled and optimised production thanks to artificial intelligence and the robotisation of tedious tasks. The promise of this 4th industrial revolution is to offer personalised products, manufactured in small quantities while retaining the economic gains of mass production. This production also takes into account the environmental and societal impact of products and puts people back at the centre of the factory.

What is the price of BCM ?

You can access BCM for free and only pay the cost of producing your part. It is also possible to have additional functionalities that are accessible by subscription and that give you access to different uses that can bring you new sources of income for example.

Why is it free? How do you get paid?

We have chosen to make BCM accessible to all French companies that want to produce in France. It is only under these conditions that it is possible to access BCM for free. We also apply a service charge to each order. These service fees correspond to the management of different information flows, financial flows and logistic flows managed by BCM. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

I don't believe in free versions, what's the catch?

There is no catch 😊. It is only the primary features of BCM that are free under very specific conditions and that favour Made in France. Even if the functionalities of BCM are offered to you under these conditions, each part you produce is at your expense.

If BCM is so easy to use and free, how do I know that Beelse is a serious company?

We are very serious 🤓 and we take our mission to heart. We're all passionate about helping your business take the next step in the industry. But you don't have to take our word for it. Our customers and the press speak for us. We work with companies of all sizes, the best known of which are Vinci Aéroport, SNCF, Toyota, etc. Beelse has won numerous awards, such as being one of the top 5 technology companies in the world that are revolutionising the manufacturing world. We are very proud.

What is my interest in taking out a subscription?

It all depends on your needs, if you use BCM to fully industrialise your projects or as a business driver, some of the features included in the subscription will be essential.

How much do the subscriptions cost? What additional features are not included in the free version?

Currently BCM is available with 3 subscription packages to suit different uses. The Organisation Plus package costs 190€/month. It offers you management functionalities for your BCM space, such as the sharing of parts between companies in order to delegate production orders and to be paid for each production. The Production Plus package is €290/month. It offers you traceability and international production functionalities. The third option is the Enterprise package, which costs €450/month. It offers you all the functionalities present on BCM.

Each offer is available as an annual subscription and saves you 2 months.

What is the reparability index?

The Repairability Index is intended to reflect the ability of an object to be repaired easily. Rated out of 10 according to evaluation criteria, it applies to certain electrical and electronic equipment. It has been in force since January 2021.

The aim of this new public measure is to reduce programmed obsolescence and promote the circular economy, i.e. the production of goods and services in a sustainable way.

🚨 What's new on 1 January 2022 🚨

Controls should be stepped up from January 2022. From the first day of the year, the DGCCRF will "carry out checks to ensure that this new obligation is properly complied with", with retailers who fail to display this information being liable to a fine. The Ministry of the Economy also states that the DGCCRF will check "the sincerity of the rating and, if necessary, may initiate proceedings if it is misleading".

In addition, several decrees were published on 1 January in the Official Journal setting out new rules for spare parts. The law requires a minimum of five years' availability from the date the first piece of equipment was placed on the market.

The text also states that a repairer "may offer to choose parts from the circular economy instead of new parts" for eligible appliances.

What is TCO (Total Cost Ownership)?

TCO highlights hidden costs that are not usually included in the price of a part. TCO (Total Cost Ownership) was created by Gartner in 1998. Its objective is to take into account all the direct and indirect costs of a product.

What is additive manufacturing?

It is a method of producing parts from raw material without the use of production tools such as injection moulds. The processes create the parts by successive additions of layers of mainly polymer or metal material. This makes it possible to produce from one-offs to large series on the same machine. The term additive manufacturing applies to industrial processes. The popular name is 3D printing, for simpler processes.

How does cloud manufacturing provide a response to a company's economic challenges?

cloud manufacturing is a new production component that brings flexibility and responsiveness to the companies involved. For example, it reduces inventory and related costs, while improving production responsiveness and customer satisfaction.

It also reduces the production time of spare parts, which can now be produced individually or in small series, anywhere in the world. This is made possible by industrial 3D printing and a software solution capable of guaranteeing the isoquality and availability of all your spare parts for life.

How does cloud manufacturing address environmental issues?

The cloud manufacturing offers the possibility to digitally store a spare part with a production on demand. This means that there is no overproduction of spare parts. The dimension of production as close as possible to the place of use reduces the logistical flows and therefore the carbon impact of companies.

How does cloud manufacturing address social issues?

The cloud manufacturing makes it possible to relocate production so that spare parts are manufactured as close as possible to the place of use by promoting local production. It offers the possibility of reducing transport and facilitates access to spare parts by increasing the reparability of products.

How does cloud manufacturing address the issue of spare parts delivery times?

The assembly of the technologies that make up cloud manufacturing is of a nature to operate in a relatively immediate dimension. The process, from order to delivery of the polymer parts, is on average 10 days. For metal parts, it is 30 days, allowing the parts to be made only from the moment the order is placed. For information, with processes that do not use cloud manufacturing, the usual lead times for spare parts are 3 to 6 months when there is no stock.

What are the prerequisites for accessing the Beelse Cloud Manufacturing solution (BCM)?
