Designers and engineers regularly make critical decisions that can introduce significant costs into your company. Engineers are designing more and more new parts every day. Why don’t they just find and reuse similar or equivalent parts that already exist inside your company’s legacy data assets? Because searching for parts and related information is very time-consuming and potentially error-prone today.
EXALEAD OnePart is a packaged business discovery application that accelerates reuse of parts, designs, specifications, standards, test results and related data for engineering, manufacturing, and procurement activities. Leveraging the proven web semantics, analytics, and big data management technologies of EXALEAD CloudView, OnePart locates information from multiple sources and makes it available instantly.
Based on EXALEAD CloudView proven technology, EXALEAD OnePart helps designers and engineers find a reusable part at the speed of thought so that they can determine whether it is really necessary to create new parts and incur the associated costs. With just a few clicks, users explore legacy parts and related 2D/3D designs, gaining immediate insight into vast amounts of previously hidden data. They can further refine their search using side-by-side comparisons to identify the right part for reuse. When a similar part is discovered, the user can also analyze important related documentation like specifications, testing, validation, and certification material in multiple formats (such as .xls & .pdf) to facilitate optimal reuse and a complete view of the situation.
With EXALEAD OnePart, engineers, managers, technicians, and procurement specialists can quickly and easily find and reuse existing parts, product designs and other related information located anywhere inside the organization, even beyond obvious PDM and PLM repositories. The result: optimized reuse of parts, designs and related documentation, thus accelerating product development and delivery and decreasing design, material, manufacturing, and storage costs.
Designers and engineers are looking for a solution that finds and gathers all existing product part-related information, no matter the format—adding similarity, metadata, and semantic-linked documents and related information to shape-search capabilities. OnePart allows users to quickly discover if the part exists by simply shortlisting the possible designs, comparing them, checking their similarity, navigating parent/child relationships, and assembling related documents to revitalize the product development enterprise.
