EXALEAD OnePart helps engineers and designers quickly decide between design creation or design reuse. It’s a business discovery application that accelerates the reuse of parts, designs, specifications, test results, and related data for engineering, manufacturing, and procurement.
Designers and engineers regularly make critical decisions that can introduce significant costs to your company. Engineers are designing more and more new parts every day. Why don’t they 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.
Without an ultra-efficient tool to rapidly find and compare similar parts hidden inside data sources and silos scattered throughout the company, design engineers simply choose to recreate a part rather than spend unproductive time searching. Although they may not realize it, creating new parts impacts the bottom line. Substantial time and costs are incurred if you need to acquire or produce new parts, leading to more production procedures, quality controls, and inventory into stock.
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 proven web semantics, analytics, and big data management technologies of EXALEAD CloudView, OnePart locates information from multiple sources and makes it available instantly.
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.
Based on EXALEAD CloudView proven technology, EXALEAD OnePart enables optimized reuse of parts and related documentation, thus accelerating product development and delivery and decreasing design, material, manufacturing, and storage costs.
EXALEAD OnePart helps designers and engineers quickly locate reusable parts and determine whether creating a new part (and its incurred costs) is necessary. With just a few clicks, users can explore legacy parts and related 2D/3D designs, gaining immediate insight into vast amounts of previously hidden data. Users can further refine their search using side-by-side comparisons to identify the best part for reuse. When a similar part is discovered, the user can analyze important related documentation like specifications, testing, validation, and certification material in multiple formats (e.g., .xls and .pdf) to facilitate optimal reuse and complete view of the situation.
