Search-based application reduces time to find already-created part designs
Fisher/Unitech has introduced Exalead OnePart, a search-based application technology for product development from Dassault Systemes SolidWorks. The technology allows designers and engineers to locate and access existing parts, product designs, and other related information from anywhere inside the organization, even beyond PDM and PLM repositories. This eliminates the need to reproduce new parts and reduces the time spent searching for already-created parts.
The application helps designers find reusable 2-D/3-D designs and related documentation at the speed of thought with just a few clicks across multiple programs, states the manufacturer. It offers both semantic- and geometric-based search arguments to find existing parts.
