Geberit Group introduces CADENAS PARTsolutions for CATIA V6 in 2016
Optimizing engineering processes by integrating PARTsolutions with CATIA and ENOVIA
The Geberit Group, with its headquarters in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland, is the European market leader in the field of sanitary engineering, sanitary and piping systems and bathroom ceramics. Recently the Swiss company decided to introduce the strategic parts management PARTsolutions of CADENAS, the software manufacturer from Augsburg.
Everything at a glance with PARTsolutions
CADENAS’ strategic parts management PARTsolutions has numerous interfaces to CAD-, PLM- and ERP systems. Thus all technical information of a component is available at a glance without changing the system: For the Geberit Group, the CAD and PLM systems CATIA V6 Experience and ENOVIA should also be used in the course of this year.
Due to the option of connecting the systems with each other, PARTsolutions will be the universal research system for Gerberit`s engineers and purchasers in the future, regarding standard supplier and self-designed parts. The integrated manufacturer catalogs in PARTsolutions with intelligent parts offer a very good basis for CATIA V6 Experience.
Increasing reuse of parts
Another important reason for the Swiss company to choose PARTsolutions is their aim to increase re-use of parts. A consistent reuse of parts reduces product and development costs significantly. For this purpose CADENAS’ PARTsolutions, combined with CATIA V6 Experience and ENOVIA, offers an ideal approach to support engineers and purchasers in the future.
The first 50 workstations will be equipped with the strategic parts management in the second quarter of 2016. Until the beginning of 2018 all 200 work stations will be equipped with PARTsolutions. Thomas Lang, sales manager South, is optimistically about the upcoming project start:
“The workshops should take place this year, so that the second project phase out of four can start in the first quarter of 2016.“
“Until then we were not using a uniform solution for standard parts. In the course of introducing 3D Experience, we want to offer users additional added value from the very beginning“, explains Juerg Huber, Head of Research & Development Applications of Geberit AG.
