At the Oracle European Value Chain Summit 2015, 3DSemantix announced the release of 3DPartFinder for Oracle AutoVue and Agile PLM Solutions to accelerate Product Development and productivity through reuse of Assets and related data. With 3DPartFinder for AutoVue everyone involved in the process of creating new products achieve their goals more efficiently!
There is no need to have a CAD station to locate the most similar parts with 3DPartFinder in AutoVue. Manufacturing Engineers can use 3DPartFinder to locate the most appropriate manufacturing process, quality inspection check-list or any other document within the Oracle Agile PLM system or other systems such as your ERP. Purchasing teams can quickly identify suppliers for a new part, compare cost for similar designs using shape as a key characteristic for their search.
“Manufacturing companies are continually challenged to bring innovative and profitable products to market faster. With 3DPartFinder for AutoVue, companies can fully exploit the value of existing intellectual property”, said Thierry Bonfante, Senior Director, Product Development AutoVue and Fusion Visualization at Oracle. “With advanced shape-based search capabilities, engineers and librarians can quickly and efficiently locate optimal parts for reuse. Candidate parts are ranked by similarity and securely displayed in AutoVue, where users can analyze and compare models and make a final selection; thereby reducing costs and speeding up time-to-market.”
“Our Customers have been looking for shape-based search for quite some time. It was only when we met the 3DPartFinder Solutions we knew we had found the best product for our Clients. By integrating the advanced geometric search capabilities of 3DPartFinder in AutoVue and Oracle Agile PLM, our Customers can now access their key assets for reuse very efficiently”, explained Denis Senpere, Vice President, Enterprise Product Lifecycle Management Solutions at Oracle EMEA.
3DPartFinder allows leveraging data stored in the Oracle Agile PLM systems. There is no need to copy existing 3D models for indexing, no need to install a new part management system or whatsoever. The screenshot below shows that 3DPartFinder for Oracle AutoVue finds all similar parts based on their shapes. Users can launch a search directly in Oracle AutoVue connected to an Oracle PLM or not. 3DPartFinder in AutoVue will find all similar parts, duplicates as well as mirror parts and even previous versions stored in the PLM from a reference part and displays the results in 3D in AutoVue for immediate exploitation.
Every user can trust 3DPartFinder to locate the most appropriate part and related information available in Oracle Agile PLM. 3DPartFinder supports leading CAD file formats and CAD systems environments like CatiaV5, NX, PTC Creo, Autodesk Inventor, Solid Edge or Solidworks.
With high accuracy 3DPartFinder Analytics, Enterprises get full control of part creation and can identify automatically any duplicate or nearby duplicate design created. Team leaders can quickly review the situation and prevent triggering the entire process of creating a new part. 3DPartFinder Analytics can supply a full Diagnostic Dash Board to help Oracle PLM customers’ measure their progress with their reuse strategy and generate their own KPI’s. 3DPartFinder Analytics allows Oracle PLM customers clean-up the 3D model database from any duplicates or assist standardization teams to create standard parts and reduce inventory cost. With process speed of one million parts per hour, it won’t take long before getting a full diagnosis!
“With 3DPartFinder Solutions, Oracle AutoVue and Agile PLM Customers can count on the most adapted shape-based search solutions for each group of users from design to manufacturing and purchasing. And on top of that, 3DPartFinder is not only simple and efficient to use, but also to implement!” commented Bertrand Houle Vice President Sales of 3DSemantix.
