Designers and engineers regularly make critical decisions that can introduce significant costs to your company. Engineers are designing more and more new parts every day. Why don’t they just find and reuse similar or equivalent parts that already exist inside your company’s legacy data assets? Because searching for parts and related information is very time-consuming and potentially error-prone today.

With EXALEAD you can reveal hidden assets, reuse legacy parts, and reduce the creation of duplicate parts.

  • Search parts, assemblies, and drawings from most data sources, including CAD providers, from a full-text search bar.
  • Auto-complete Web search functionality speeds user queries.
  • Navigation into the parent and children relationships of an assembly to converge on the exact right part.
  • 3D mechanical feature mining (locating parts based on holes, pads, grooves, and others).
  • Side-by-side/Metadata comparisons to quickly highlight the most relevant part for reuse.
  • Shape Search to find similar parts based on a known reference part
  • User-friendly display of charts and graphs with configurable KPIs for rapid analysis.

Find and Reuse Existing Parts, 2D/3D Designs, and Related Documentation

EXALEAD OnePart helps designers and engineers find a reusable part at the speed of thought so that they can determine whether it is really necessary to create new parts and incur the associated costs. With just a few clicks, users explore legacy parts and related 2D/3D designs, gaining immediate insight into vast amounts of previously hidden data. They can further refine their search using side-by-side comparisons to identify the right part for reuse. When a similar part is discovered, the user can also analyze important related documentation like specifications, testing, validation, and certification material in multiple formats (such as .xls & .pdf) to facilitate optimal reuse and a complete view of the situation.

Without an ultra-efficient tool to rapidly find and compare similar parts hidden inside data sources and silos scattered throughout the company, design engineers simply choose to recreate the part rather than spend unproductive time searching. Although they may not realize it, creating new parts impacts the bottom line. Substantial time and costs are incurred if you need to acquire or produce new parts, leading to more production procedures, quality controls, and inventory into stock.

EXALEAD OnePart enables optimized reuse of parts and related documentation, thus accelerating product development and delivery and decreasing design, material, manufacturing, and storage costs.

EXALEAD OnePart is a packaged business discovery application that accelerates reuse of parts, designs, specifications, standards, test results and related data for engineering, manufacturing, and procurement activities. Leveraging the proven Web semantics, analytics, and Big Data management technologies of EXALEAD CloudView, OnePart locates information from multiple sources and makes it available instantly.
