Unite Purchase & Engineering
PURCHINEERING is a combination of the words "purchase" and "engineering" and aims at combining the purchasing and engineering processes. The optimization of the cooperation of both areas ensures that companies considerably increase their competitve advantage.
The Strategic Parts Management overcomes obstacles
Often, there are different opinions in the departments about what is the best component: While the purchasing department will prefer the cheapest product, the engineer will choose the technically most sophisticated product.
CADENAS helps support the PURCHINEERING concept and thus also the engineer and purchaser with its Strategic Parts Management system PARTsolutions.
