FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PARTsolutions Extends IPM with Geometric Search & Compare
Search technology has been identified by industry analysts as a key technology for successful product lifecycle solutions. PARTsolutions now combines enhanced geometric search & compare with other search methods, such as keyword, date, versions, topicality, ERP master data and part obsolescence model scan searches. The geometric similarity search can be used with PARTsolutions supplier catalog parts as well as in-house CAD parts. A graphical comparison function immediately identifies differences versus the found parts.
The business benefit lies in the opportunity for enterprises to identify desired commercial, standard and proprietary parts as well as identify and eliminate redundant parts.
