In today’s highly competitive market, specialty manufacturers must find cost savings and efficiency gains in every part of their operation. Focusing on better part master management can significantly reduce costs — but the high volume of information involved makes this an incredibly labor-intensive process. How do you manage part data efficiently when spreadsheets and paper processes have so many limits?
That’s where product lifecycle management (PLM) software comes in. PLM replaces basic spreadsheets with an advanced, cloud-based database system specifically designed for managing detailed and complex product data. Let’s explore how PLM can
improve part master management.
PLM software replaces spreadsheets and outdated paper processes with a central database that manages all manufacturing data, including parts. Cloud-based platforms update in real-time and serve as reliable resources for every stakeholder in the company. PLM even integrates with ERP, CAD, and other manufacturing software to prevent data silos from forming.
PRO.FILE a Revalize brand is a PLM platform that creates a product data backbone for every project, product, and part, simplifying part master management for users. PRO.FILE can automatically generate part numbers for every item in the inventory and link every part-related document, enabling ultra-fast search access to critical data. The real-time updates and visibility dramatically reduce duplicate part orders. In fact, many users eliminate 10% of their new part orders each year.
