Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions Promotes Lean Engineering at Siemens PLM Connection User Conference
CADENAS PARTsolutions Extends PLM to Better Manage Standard and Supplier Parts
CADENAS was showing off the Strategic Parts Management system PARTsolutions at the Siemens PLM World annual user conference. The software platform helps engineering teams better manage their standard and supplier parts, so they can spend more time on value-added design.
"Up to 45 percent of engineering time is spent searching for or redrawing industry standard and commercial supplier parts. That's wasted, non-value added design time," said Jay Hopper, CADENAS PARTsolutions LLC, USA. "Our parts management system optimizes the engineering design process resulting in serious time savings and increased profits for manufacturers."
CADENAS' Strategic Parts Management platform works in conjunction with PLM systems, such as Siemens Teamcenter®, to help engineers find, reuse and control standard parts. The parts management system creates a single authoritative source for all standard and supplier parts which can be accessed by engineers across the enterprise, even using multiple CAD systems. Standard and supplier parts are available in over 150 native and neutral formats including all major CAD systems, and are maintained and updated by the supplier.
