IPC Training Workshops after CWG Conferences

training_student300x200eSpline developed the IPC Training workshop for a condensed 2 day session following the 2008 European CWG Conference in Berlin, Germany.  Since then, the workshop has been offered after the Marco Island CWG Conferences in 2007 thru 2011 and most recently after the 2012 CWG Conference.   One of the comments from that session was    "The best SAP training I have ever been to."     This training would have saved me 1 month of work and frustration had I known it existed earlier" said Stefan Molzen of Sauer Danfoss.

Explanation of what is Internet Pricing & Configurator [IPC 5.0] and in what scenarios is it used.  This is a focused, hands-on use of IPC including creation and use of the knowledge bases pricing and testing.  This workshop includes an introduction to best VC modeling practices and discussions of IPC/AP vs. VC differences.   Over 20 SAP companies have attended these sessions in Europe and North America including: Ericsson, Cameron, Philips Healthcare, Grundfos, MHZ Hachtel, Siemens, Sauer-Danfoss, Hubbell, Tyco Thermal, Albany International and many more.
