PARTsolutions strategic parts management

A Better Way to
Find & Reuse CAD
Models & Data.

PARTsolutions Strategic Parts Management software makes it easy to find and reuse CAD models and data.

3D shape search and attribute search functions enable users to find internal CAD data from multiple business systems and navigate trillions of supplier parts from the PARTsolutions Libraries within their CAD software.

A well oiled engineering machine!

It’s 2 PM and your engineers are going on their fifth-hour of value-added-design work for the day. They are focused and won’t let anything derail the all-important work of new product design. They spend their time in their CAD workflows, rarely needing to leave those workflows to find parts.

 

There’s one problem with this scenario. It isn’t your reality.

 

Your engineers are:

  • Constantly being pulled out of their design work to search for and recreate parts.
  • Slowing down time to market for new products because of non-value-added search efforts.
  • Bringing in low-quality data and duplicate parts.

There’s a gap in your engineering process.

 

Engineers dig through internal databases, which are virtual ‘jars-of-bolts’, to find the parts they need. More often than not, they quickly revert from an internal search to an online search to download parts.

If they find what they are looking for they often introduce duplicate parts into your PLM or PDM system. If they can’t find what they are looking for online, they recreate parts that may already exist in your PLM or PDM system. All of this effort for non-value-added work.

The result of this madness is hundreds and in some cases, thousands of duplicate parts added to your databases. These duplicate parts add costs throughout the product lifecycle and represent countless engineering hours.

Did you know: Your engineers spend 25% of their day
searching for and recreating parts that already exist!

You want a well-oiled engineering machine, but you’re stuck in first gear — Now you can kick your engineering machine into high gear with PARTsolutions.

PARTsolutions Strategic Parts Management software Bridges the Part Search Gap.

 

PARTsolutions Strategic Parts Management software makes it easy for engineers to find and reuse CAD models and data, eliminating the introduction of duplicate parts and reducing non-value-added engineering work. Users can easily find parts inside your internal PLM/PDM system and from suppliers.

We don’t store your CAD data, we just make it easy for your engineers to find the right part, at the right time, no matter what system you use to store CAD data or CAD related metadata.

Find and Reuse Your CAD Data

Find CAD Models and Related CAD Data Using Shape Search

Engineers can quickly find internal CAD data using the 3D shape search and attribute search functions in PARTsolutions, with integrations to your CAD, PDM, PLM, and ERP solutions.

Easily navigate trillions of supplier parts from 800+ manufacturer certified catalogs without leaving your CAD software or PLM.

3D Shape Search

Learn How to Find Parts Faster

3D Shape Search (GEOsearch)

CADENAS PARTsolutions offers a 3D shape search tool called “GEOsearch” to enable engineers to find CAD data faster. Our software is designed with the engineering process in mind.

Users can find parts in their internal databases or from trillions of part configurations using search functions that are integrated directly in their CAD software.

3D shape search coupled with attribute search functions allows engineers to search for 3D geometry AND file names, descriptions, metadata, or even data from multiple business systems like ERP systems.

With GEOsearch, users can either start a 3D shape search with a source model or start a 3D shape search without a source model. You can read an overview of the types of search functions in the tabs below. If you want more information about a search function, click “Learn more…”.

 

Attribute Search

PARTsolutions attribute search functions allow users to find CAD models or filter search results based on metadata associated with the CAD model. The metadata can be embedded in the model or from an external source like associated ERP data.

With attribute search, users can quickly locate the part they need from the part descriptions, part number, or class. Users can also filter by entering material, price, location, availability, or any other textual metadata.
