Boeing Emphasizes Importance of Standards at the CADENAS PARTsolutions Industry Forum

AUGSBURG, GERMANY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 09, 2012 -- The Boeing Company, the world's largest aerospace manufacturer, presented at the 13th Annual CADENAS PARTsolutions Industry Forum today in Augsburg, Germany. Boeing shared their current program for defining an enterprise architecture that enables interoperability of part standards to fully integrate with multiple CAD and PDM delivery systems.

Darwin Reed, who leads the initiative for Boeing, showed how PARTsolutions 3D part catalog management software has enabled Boeing to have centralized, global access to proprietary, commercial, and standards-based 3D parts, which are configurable in any CAD-native format with all associated attribute information to ensure fast part access, reuse, and compliance. Reed also spoke about how the PARTsolutions geometric search and compare technologies have been implemented and are being utilized in Boeing's design reuse scenarios on various programs to reduce the introduction of duplicate parts to achieve dramatic cost savings.

In 2011, Boeing was selected as a winner of Managing Automation Media's seventh annual Progressive Manufacturing 100 (PM 100) Awards for its implementation of its PARTsolutions 3D Part Catalog Management Software.

"PARTsolutions is excited that our technology has transformed Boeing's product standards while delivering a solid return on investment," said Tim Thomas, CEO of PARTsolutions. "Boeing has achieved substantial business benefits that can be measured by significant cost savings and greater innovation."

The PARTsolutions product suite delivers value to Boeing's supply chain through catalog solutions which streamline design collaboration for globally distributed teams. PARTsolutions is the only CAD-Native 3D part catalog management solution designed to preserve 3D standard part catalog content, independent of CAD system or CAD version, thereby enabling 3D standard part catalog stability for current and future engineering design environments. This allows Boeing's designers to find approved standard parts fast with confidence to incorporate into their designs, to reduce product development costs, first time quality improvements, and subsequent inventory costs.
