First of all, PARTsolutions offers us the opportunity to find all single parts including complex geometries in all locations and from all systems. Thanks to the scalable architecture, PARTsolutions can be globally implemented at more and more workstations at MAN without a problem.

Classification vs. intelligent finding

The way information is processed and found in your company depends
on how your employees work, on business processes and the master data
of your parts.

Find the method that suits you best

Whether traditional classification, semiautomatic classification or intelligent finding, the innovative functions of CADENAS´ Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions offers the best solution for all areas.

Operation
& Training

Low training efforts, but knowledge about classification system is necessary

Simple operation, but knowledge about classification system is necessary

User has to work strategically, intensive training is necessary

Ignorance (disuse) possible through user

Yes

Yes

No, background search points out parts to the user

Precise search for a definite class and defined values?

Yes

Yes

Conditioned

Display of invalid values

No

No

Yes, but innovative proposals as well

Which parts is it suitable for? Simple and complex parts with slight deviations regarding type and quantity of the features, parts without CAD geometrics or adhesives, oils, electric parts where the external form is irrelevant
Simple and complex parts with slight deviations regarding type and quantity of the features, parts without CAD geometrics, oils, electric parts where the external form is irrelevant Parts that can be simply sketched, complex parts with a distinctive topology, CAD geometry exist, complex geometrics with few precise parameters
