Almost all manufacturing companies have to deal with standards parts to some extent. But how many companies consider standard parts management as an important task?
Many times companies are managing standard parts but have no fully established processes and system support for it. A common situation is also that standard parts are managed, but in several different systems at the same time.
How much more efficient could you be if you find a way to better manage how you: store, find, and re-use those parts in your designs? What if you could manage you standard parts in one platform?
Some other aspects why you should consider standard parts management:
Save Design Time
By using one system to find, re-use and control standard supplier parts and internal standard parts. Engineers access Parts (and 3D models) from a single source.
Spend Time on Design That is Important
Engineers can focus on design solutions, rather than spend time on standard parts. Engineers should not spend time searching for standard parts and re-design them.
Speed Up Product Development & Time to Market
By removing “non-value-adding” engineering tasks (like searching and re-designing parts), you can speed up product development and manufacturing processes.
In the video below, I will show one way how standard parts management can be done on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform using CATIA and ENOVIA V6. Everything is done on one single platform.
The video is 15 minutes and shows the process in the picture above. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
