eBook: Making Part Reuse Simple with EXALEAD OnePart

Most manufacturers know that reusing duplicate parts instead of redesigning them is important. Part reuse is hard to quantify, and it’s not often done. But doing so reveals just how large the opportunity cost really is—and how much every manufacturer can save.

EXALEAD OnePart, from Dassault Systèmes, offers a secure, non-intrusive, and fast way to collect part data from nearly every enterprise system in your organization. That part information can then be searched and analyzed in order to deduplicate or standardize common parts. Master or preferred parts can also be flagged for future use.

Given that engineers spend up to 45% of their time searching for or recreating parts that already exist, manufacturers have to ask themselves how much time is really spent on new-product innovation? And how can they free up more time across the enterprise to focus on innovation, faster time to market, and reduced production costs?

This eBook gives you the basics of the many ways OnePart can help you improve your bottom line.  It covers:

  • The Opportunity for Reusing Parts
  • Part Reuse Challenges
  • Why Exalead
    • OnePart Functionality: Reveal
    • OnePart Functionality: Reuse
    • OnePart Functionality: Reduce

Video: Optimize Reverse Engineering with 3DEXPERIENCE

Drive Innovation Cycles with Reverse Engineering end to end using PLM software with 3D Printing and 3D Scanning tools

Frank Thomas and Florian Bardet presented at COExperience 2020 showcasing how to Optimize Reverse Engineering with 3DEXPERIENCE.  This presentation shows how a team manages a reverse engineering project from end to end using a variety of tools:

  • 3DEXPERIENCE platform will be the software used to govern the project, re-engineer the part, and validate it with simulation. 
    • CATIA
    • ENOVIA
  • Creaform HandySCAN BLACK 3D Scanner will be used to digitize the part at the beginning of the process to enable the team to reverse engineer the part.
  • Markforged Metal X 3D Printer is used at the end to 3D print the re-engineered part.

eBook: 4 Reasons to Choose 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud

If you have been considering moving to 3DEXPERIENCE on the Cloud, you may be interested in downloading our latest eBook: 4 Reasons to Choose 3DEXPERIENCE on the Cloud.

One of the considerations manufacturers must make when choosing to move to a PLM platform is whether to install the software on-premises – potentially incurring additional costs for hardware and IT time – or whether to make use of a cloud-based solution. This eBook covers the benefits of the 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud platform and how it can help improve product development processes.

Learn how Cloud solutions lower Total Cost of Ownership from things like incurring IT consultants costs for installation, requiring additional servers or software maintenance costs. Get a quicker Return on Investment with Cloud solutions by accessing enhanced collaboration capabilities from centralized cloud access, onboard more employees faster, and ensure everyone is working from the same product data no matter where they are located.
