Customer demands for individualization and product complexity are constantly increasing. This poses significant economic and technical challenges in terms of cost, time, and solutions, especially for special purpose machinery. These challenges have a particular impact on the interfaces to the customer, such as the offer phase. Systems Engineering (SE) can help to overcome these challenges. In this paper, the potential benefits of SE are presented and then applied to individual scenarios in the offer phase of a selected company in the special machinery industry. For this purpose, the actual situation of the offer phase was analyzed and presented in four use cases.

Keywords: Special Purpose Machinery, Mechanical and Plant Engineering, Offer Phase, Systems Engineering, System Model
