PARTsolutions SPM Platform Adds Powerful Search, Classification and Analytical tools to PLM Systems for Design Teams
Cincinnati, OH – June 10, 2014 – CADENAS PARTsolutions is demonstrating the power and versatility of their Standard Parts Management (SPM) platform at PLM Connection 2014, June 16 -19 in Orlando, Florida. PARTsolutions SPM operates as a standalone platform or in tandem with a Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) system. The platform helps engineering teams manage their standard and supplier parts, so they can spend more time on value-added design. PARTsolutions Standard Parts Management (SPM) gives engineers the power to search standard parts, as well as sort and classify, like no other platform can.
“PARTsolutions SPM platform beefs-up the power of your organization’s PLM system,” says Tim Thomas, CEO of CADENAS PARTsolutions. “Our powerful classification capabilities ensure the ‘parts vault’ is clean and accurate, removing duplicates and organizing components in a much more intuitive way. Once the “vault” is clean, our system confirms the accuracy of parts for designers to choose from in the future, while adding powerful capabilities to search standard parts and speed up their specification process. Engineers won’t have to waste time hunting for the right part, they can quickly find what they need, drop it in their design and move on, that’s value-added design!”
Implementation of SPM technologies establishes enterprise-wide standardization for all part types, resulting in:
- Elimination of duplicate parts
- Reduction of engineering re-work
- Increased productivity
- Guided selection of company approved parts and suppliers
- Part data visibility across all systems (ERP, PLM, PDM and CAD)
- Compliance for industry standard / commodity parts
- Greater order accuracy and procurement efficiency
PARTsolutions SPM, helps engineers and purchasers to find, reduce and manage standard, supplier and internal standard parts, using a simple interface. Using PARTsolutions, CAD users have access to 3D CAD models from more than 600 certified manufacturer catalogs. When importing 3D CAD models from PARTsolutions into CAD, the system avoids duplicates by automatically “checking parts in” to the PLM system. When a component is necessary for a design in CAD it is not created again by PARTsolutions, but directly uploaded from the PLM. This optimized process helps to reduce the number of redundant parts in the library, saving time and resources for the organization.
