Classification 2.0 – Parametric reference model instead of manual classification
In contrast to the traditional classification, there is no complex preliminary manual work necessary with classification 2.0.
With classification 2.0 parametric reference models are stored for each class. If for instance, an L-profile with certain dimensions is necessary, the system looks for parts that are geometrically similar to the parametrically prepopulated reference model.
Some shortcomings of the conventional classification systems can also be compensated: If for instance drilling holes should be regarded in the classification, then additional classes would be actually necessary for the amount of holes (L-profile with 2 holes, Lprofile with 3 holes ...). Information about the size and arrangement of the drilling is anyway still not yet available.
With classification 2.0, it is possible to take part classes (e.g.: L-profiles) as well as the amount and sizes of holes into account. With a topology search the system finds in your database the exact component with the necessary drillings for your design in an uncomplicated way.
Which order type are you? Decide for yourself!
How to process and find information in the best way basically depends on your parts master, your company processes and the working methods of your employees.
Whether semi-automatic classification or intelligent finding, with the innovative features of the Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions, CADENAS offers the best solution for all approaches and requirements.
