PARTsolutions kicks into gear with version 9.8
CADENAS’ Strategic Parts Management accelerates workflows with improvements of GEOsearch, the full-text search and the new AppServer
CADENAS, software developer from Augsburg, Germany, released the latest version of the Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions. Version 9.8 is characterized by more speed and better performance. Highlights are the accelerated intelligent finding functions based on the Geometric Similarity Search GEOsearch, the 2D Sketch-, Topology- and Full-Text search as well as the simplified remote access with a central hosting on the new Application Server web service.
The highlights: more information and quicker results
The new version offers numerous improvements for users:
The new PARTsolutions Application Server supplements the central data storage of the catalogs at one site. Moreover the previous search server was integrated into the new AppServer, which means the administration only has to wait through one server process. Also a much faster use of the software and catalogs is now possible at sites with slower network connections.
The new auto-completion accelerates the Full-text Search up to 50 percent by showing the possible options during entry. Thus the Full-text Search can be handled as simply as the familiar and popular Google Search.
The new search filter assistant allows the user to quickly create search templates for certain part types such as bearings, screws, etc. with individual search criteria for several parts with unified variables.
The Geometric Similarity Search (3D), the Sketch Search (2D) and the Topology Search also stand out with a performance improved of factor 10. Thus users can search 6.5 million parts within 3 seconds and compare them to all available supplier parts of the installed catalogs. It is also possible to quickly draw up an analysis whether a supplier part could be used instead of an expensive in-house production. On average, supplier parts cost 93 % less than internal parts and cause less storage costs. In consequence this new functions offers big saving potentials.
Numerous further improvements were made on these features. For instance, many new export Formats and Interfaces for CAD and PLM programs were added. For details and further information about the Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions, please visit: www.cadenas.de/strategic-partsmanagement
