Find and reuse existing parts, 2D/3D designs and related documentation, saving time and money across the company.
EXALEAD OnePart is a 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.
How it works:
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.
Key benefits include:
• Search parts, assemblies, and drawings from most data sources, including major CAD providers, from a user-friendly 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 more)
• Side-by-side comparisons to quickly highlight the most relevant part for reuse
• Shape Search to find similar parts based on a known reference
• User-friendly charts and graphs with configurable KPIs for rapid analysis
