Product Design & Business Process
Key Takeaway 1:
Screws, nuts and washers are not the most important components of an industrial system or machine. However, without a doubt, these are essential for the ultimate product. The intellectual property designed for a product is expensive and needs to be re-used if possible. Parts bought from a vendor for tooling or direct use in a product design needs to have attribute data to serve of the design, procurement and post-sale support.
Key Takeaway 2:
With CAD PLM and ERP to aide in the organization of the part categories, the task should be straight forward to achieve the objective of having correct parts with proper attributes. That is not the case.
Key Takeaway 3:
Let’s show how PARTsolutions can help in the workflow of having harmonized attributes and 3-D data that lend itself for use and reuse, simplified data through the procurement process. Content embedded in Creo and Windchill leads the designer to re-use. Constant reminder of alternative candidates reduced duplicates and reinforces preferred parts.
