DALLAS, TX – June 5 , 2013 –  The CADENAS PARTsolutions® team is showing off  the PARTsolutions Strategic Parts Management system today at the Siemens PLM World annual user conference . The software platform helps engineering teams better manage their standard and supplier parts, so they can spend more time on value-added design.

“Up to 45 percent of engineering time is spent searching for or redrawing industry standard and commercial supplier parts. That’s wasted, non-value added design time,” said Jay Hopper, VP Marketing for CADENAS PARTsolutions. “Our parts management system optimizes the engineering design process resulting in serious time savings and increased profits for manufacturers.”

The CADENAS PARTsolutions strategic parts management platform works in conjunction with PLM systems, such as Siemens Teamcenter®, to help engineers find, reuse and control standard parts. The parts management system creates a single authoritative source for all standard and supplier parts which can be accessed by engineers across the enterprise, even using multiple CAD systems. Standard and supplier parts are available in over 150 native and neutral formats including all major CAD systems, and are maintained and updated by the supplier.

Engineering Benefits Include

  • Increased profit margins
  • Substantial time savings
  • Elimination of duplicate parts
  • Reduction of rework
  • Implementation of  lean engineering practices

Purchasing departments also gain unprecedented control and purchasing power for commercial parts with the PARTsolutions strategic parts management system, which integrates with all major ERP systems as well.
