CWG Chapters

The Board of Directors is currently forming local and regional CWG Chapters globally. 

Our mission is to provide information and education about the SAP Variant Configuration (VC), the Internet Pricing Configurator (IPC), and SAP CRM configurators and historically the primary venue for this information sharing and networking has been either this website or at the European Conference in the Spring and the North American CWG Conference in the Fall.

Each CWG Chapter has their own website page and please visit for more information by clicking on the Chapter Title below.

With 500+ member companies, 250+ partner companies and 2,500+ members, not everyone can or will attend a European or North American conference to get specific answers to questions or meet and network with other VC and IPC professionals.  This website has been the only alternative to the two conferences per year. 

So, the CWG Board is enabling companies and members to have their own "mini conferences" to discuss and share issues, network and find out how to solve some of those tough problems through the formation of local CWG Chapters with face-to-face meetings and webinars.  Each Chapter will also have a specific Chapter LinkedIn Group for networking and receiving Chapter announcements   There is also a LinkedIn Group for all CWG members.

Chapters are designed to share and discuss issues that you may have in your everyday implementation, integration or modeling problems.  It is also a place to learn more about the VC and IPC.  Education is one of the primary goals and now this can be accomplished on a local level. 

The CWG Chapter has to be self-sufficient though.  We encourage their formation and will assist in building the member base and helping to get out the message to local members, and sharing information presented at the chapters, and the Chapter in return has the freedom to meet and have presentations about their local issues.

If you have an interest in forming a CWG Chapter in your area contact us here

Twin Cities Chapter Meeting

Since I am about 6 months behind on getting a meeting together, I have set a date to just have an hour conference call to talk about possible future topics and if you have a topic to talk about this time, that would be great.

August 3 from 12:00 - 1:00   ---  Please e-mail me (lori.nigbur@te.com) if you are planning on attending.  I will then send you a conf call number and web meeting information.

I am just going to start with an hour, but if there are topics to show that will take more time, I will add more time.

Twin Cities Chapter Meeting Held!

Next meeting will be set for November 10th from 11 - 1.

 

August 3, we had our first chapter meeting.  6 companies were represented.

We discussed future meetings/topics.  We are planning on meeting quarterly and also looking into meeting with ASUG.  Topics that were of interest are items like lessons learned, tips and tricks, and demos of how companies are doing VC.

I reviewed our current process at TE Connectivity and did a demo of the Quote and Sales Order process.  I also talked about things that we may do differently than what others do!

CWG Twin Cities Meeting in Feb?

Now that the holidays are over, I would like to get a meeting planned in Feb.

I am looking for volunteers to present or possible topics to cover. I am thinking this meeting will be a conference call/web meeting this time (mostly likely 1 - 2 hours). Please reply to this message or feel free to e-mail me at lori.nigbur@te.com if you have ideas. (Can also just let me know if you are interested in meeting, so I get an idea for the number of people!)

Thanks,

Lori Nigbur

Erster „Stammtisch“ des Southern Germany Chapters in Böblingen

Am 25.Juli 2019 haben sich Mitglieder des Southern Germany Chapter zum ersten offiziellen Stammtisch getroffen.

9 CWG Mitglieder aus 7 Firmen haben am „heißesten Tag“ seit der Wetteraufzeichnung den Weg nach Böblingen in die Hausbrauerei Wichtel gefunden.

 

Bei kühlen Getränken und leckerem Essen tauschte man sich angeregt über die verschiedensten Themen und Herausforderungen rund um die Konfiguration aus.

Australia Chapter

 

Looking for topics and / or presenters for the next Webinar. Ideas please.

The first webinar for the CWG Australia was held on the 25th February 2009 and although a small group it was a good beginning for future webinars. It was well represented from Melbourne and Adelaide and it would be good to see some attendees from Sydney and other places.

It was decided that it would be a good idea to poll members on what should be included in the next one.

Ideas: ??? Customer Stories good or bad, ??? maintaining VC systems etc.
