Webinar: 'Sustain: Best-practices for part creation'

Target group
  • Decision makers
  • Standards Department
  • Strategic Purchasing
  • Process Planning
  • Design Department
  • A peek into actual customer projects: How are they solving the issue? (The actual customers sometimes participate, if possible).
  • Automatic classification during part creation
  • Automatic duplicate check during part creation
  • Automatic formation rules (set of rules) for part names, order texts, etc.
  • Separation of approval and release of parts: the new class owner concept
  • workflow-based processes for part creation and classification

Does it all sound familiar? During release of a component (or sometimes after release), you can recognize containing duplicates or very similar parts. Now, a heated discussion starts between design department, on the one hand, who does not want to replace the duplicate parts what would cause additional work; and, on the other hand, purchasing, process planning and production which are faced with higher resulting complexity costs.

Integrate classifying in your pat creation process right from the start: A classification is the most efficient instrument to structure part, components, solutions and knowledge and to make them retrievable by means of attributes quickly. You will recognize duplicates and similar part directly during part creation while entering the attributes - steps ahead of release. If you have parts that cannot be classified with attributes, those parts can be checked by the automatic duplicate analysis during 3D search. And the heated discussion will find an end very soon.

These burning questions will be answered:     Further items covered by the webinar:  
  • What are the Best Practices and what benefits of innovative methods lie in the "integrated creation process"?
  • How can you implement the integration of the part creation and classification process step-by-step and how can you ensure to achieve quick results with small introduction effort?
  • Why is part creation (including classification) faster that part creation alone?
  • What are cost-saving automatisms to support the classification process during part creation?
  • How can you automatically fill master data (e.g. part names, part short texts, order texts, product groups) from classifications? It saves time, increases data quality and avoids errors?
  • How can you avoid newly-created duplicates and similar parts during part creation and therefore recognize and avoid effectively similar parts long before release.
  • How can you guarantee data quality by workflow-based processes for part creation and classification?
  • How can you reduce significantly repeated data maintenance and multiple coordination meetings?
  • Introduction of best practices from finished part management projects.
  • Short introduction and theoretical/technical background of the CADBAS solution portfolio - an overview of the "State of the Part" of part management - with its different methods and search procedures that can be applied and customized to any use case/application.
  • Final discussion / Q&A, e.g. "How do I start a part management project in my company and how can I estimate required time, capacities and budgets?"
