Parametric Full-text Search

CADENAS’ Full-text Search offers an effective possibility to browse the complete catalog and parts world of the Strategic Parts Management for necessary parts.

Correction suggestions, alternative search terms and parameterization

PARTsolutions checks search terms for spelling errors and proposes similar terms. In doing so CADENAS’ Full-text Search does not only regard component identification, but also table contents and attributes of the component.

When inputting the search terms it is also possible to add component characteristics to the search. These logical operators for example: “D < 12 AND L < 100”, part number, attribute, description, etc. work side by side to find the best possible search result.

Combining several search terms

The Strategic Parts Management offers the option to have search term suggestions during the search for parts. These terms are automatically extracted from the database that is being searched.

If you, for instance, use the term “screw” during your search, PARTsolutions automatically offers related terms like “low screw head” or synonyms. When clicking on one of these terms it automatically becomes a combined search.
