Make or Buy
Conduct make-or-buy analyses
Many companies produce most of their components themselves, although supplier parts are available to be purchased. The increased use of supplier parts however leads to new production capacities allowing companies to concentrate more intensively on their actual core competency.
Only PARTsolutions‘ Geometric Similarity Search can enable engineers to compare internal and supplier parts. This enables manufacturers to find the same or similar products from international manufacturers in the external parts world and seamlessly integrate them into their designs.
