Part duplication and part number proliferation are inefficient and expensive. By reusing existing designs via an online catalog, you can reduce both cost and time-to-market. PTC Windchill PartsLink Classification and Reuse — an integral option for PTC Windchill PDMLink — allows you to organize internal design libraries through flexible, easy-to-use, Web-based library searching mechanisms.
Users can quickly and effectively find and reuse preferred parts by comparing important functional, physical, supply chain and environmental-compliance characteristics. Plus, with the software’s guided navigation tools, you can dramatically increase the likelihood that designers will locate and reuse existing parts instead of creating new, redundant ones.
