Classification and Reuse
Integral Parts Management
Part duplication and part number proliferation is inefficient and expensive. By reusing existing designs via an online catalog, you can reduce cost and time to market. Windchill PartsLink Classification and Reuse – an integral option for Windchill PDMLink – allows you to organize internal design libraries and make them available to your engineering team through flexible, easy-to-use Web-based library searching mechanisms.
- Design product or part classification schemas and develop content for structured product information systems
- Support design reuse and provide decision support tools through parts classification and parametric search
- Optimize the creation, use and reuse of designs at all points in the product development process
- Increased engineering productivity, through parametric searches, graphical navigation, and built-in 3D visualization tools
- Parts management drives faster time to market, better sourcing decisions, increased engineering productivity
