Strategic Parts Management - Efficient and Lasting Cost Reduction

About 70% of manipulable total product costs can be traced back to planning in the development phase. The strategic parts management system PARTsolutions contributes to easy finding, management and reduction of components and standard parts in modern companies. In addition, the strategic parts management system supports the use of the "purchineering concept", which increases the efficiency of the cooperation of purchasing and engineering.

Electronic CAD Product Catalogs - The Marketing Instrument for all Component Manufacturers

eCATALOGsolutions is a software solution for manufacturers of standard and purchased parts to create, manage and market electronic product catalogs. CADENAS’ electronic CAD product data have revolutionized marketing for component manufacturers in this increasingly digital world, by making product information available for the respective buyer target groups. They pave the way for the buying process of interested parties and customers and offer enormous marketing chances through vertical market places.

Workshops & Networking

Parallel to the technical lectures, hourly workshops give interested parties the opportunity to gather useful knowledge for their everyday work with CADENAS' PARTsolutions and eCATALOGsolutions. In addition, the Industry Forum offers numerous opportunities for networking. "I always meet loads of interesting people at the Industry Forum each year and can easily exchange information about my experiences with the CADENAS software solutions with other participants", says a visitor of the Industry Forum 2010. "The CADENAS convention is really a successful constellation." Additionally, the 12th Industry Forum in Augsburg will be accompanied by an evening event.
