eCATALOGsolutions Quality Seal
CADENAS continuously awards prizes to Electronic Product Catalogs based on eCATALOGsolutions technology with the quality seal in gold and silver.
The guidelines for the quality certification of CAD product catalogs were developed together with CADENAS customers to ensure a consistently high quality of the 3D CAD catalogs for engineers.
These characteristics are checked on by the quality assurance of CADENAS.
Minimum requirements for the silver quality seal
- Central management of data inventory with roll and rights system
- Automatic testing of data integrity e.g. CAD compatibility, clarity of terms, etc.
- English as main language
- Effective manual checking of the most important criteria, e.g. preview, translation, technical previews, structure, assembly construction, etc.
- Catalog availability through ERP mappings
Minimum requirements for the golden quality seal
Accompanying the minimum requirements for the silver quality seal are the following requirements to receive a golden quality seal:
