Incorporating Suppliers & Service Providers

CADENAS' collaborative Online Supplier Portal allows you to optimize communication to subcontractors and engineering service providers. Thus it externally promotes keeping your internal standards.

Challenges of external service providers

A structured information exchange is necessary to avoid externals from doing what they want, although there is an internal standard:

  • Internal standards have to be accessibleto external service providers
  • CAD data and component geometry always has to be up to date
  • Portal contents have to be available in several languages

Supplier portals on the basis of the PARTcommunity Technology

With the Supplier Portal, CADENAS offers an online platform for the cooperation with external service providers.

During the term of the joint project all released standards and listed suppliers as well as filtered standards and CAD data are made available for download

All information for externals

CADENAS´ Supplier Portal is directly connected to the Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions, thus it disposes of all the parts information from the PLM and ERP systems.

By integration into the existing system, standards like company parts can be made available on a centrally controlled surface:

  • Information from the CAD System
    Geometry, weight, ...

  • Information from the PLM System
    Priority lane, document, ...

  • Information from the ERP System
    Price, availability, ...
