System requirements

Important information for implementing customX

Requirements – PC, development of rulebook

To develop and test the customX rulebook, customX administrators work in real-life situations on computers that are independent of server operation. Usually, these are the PCs at the personal workplace. In comparison to the frequently used CAD software, the system requirements are considerably lower, so that these CAD products should be considered when selecting a computer.

Our employees use commercially available notebooks for about 1,200.- €, which are replaced every two to three years. This has established itself as the best price-performance ratio for us.

Requirements - server

customX works with small data volumes and uses other programs to create documents. The system requirements for the server on which customX is installed are therefore very low and shown in the table below. When setting up your server, however, please consider that the tools that customX uses must also be installed there and often have additional requirements.
