The researchers were convinced that there were great gains to be made by applying the principles to the field of product configuration. The research team worked in close collaboration with companies such as Ericsson, ABB, and Alfa Laval. By 1993, the group had developed a configurator for a pilot project that was causing quite a stir. Both the researchers and the Institute saw the commercial potential of what had been developed. After a further five years of prototyping and evaluation, Tacton Systems was formed as a spin-off from the research institute.   Tacton has an impressive customer roster with impressive results gained with the offered technology.
