Configuration management with in-STEP BLUE

In 2001, Voith Turbo Scharfenberg introduced in-STEP BLUE as the tool for configuration management. The primary objective was to map processes, project states for internal overviews and statistics, and audits, while also providing a solid basis for effective claims management and the systematic filing of documents. Compliance with EN 50126 for railway applications was realized with in-STEP BLUE, as well as the configuration of document life cycles via state machines and the definition of roles including corresponding rights management. in-STEP BLUE is currently scheduled for use in approximately 200 projects per year.
