- Further wild growth of parts since already existing components can not be found and will be created again
- Purchasing places several separate orders instead of bundling orders to get lower purchase prices
- Engineer develops new products with outdated parts that can no longer be purchased or will soon expire
Each additional part creates significant costs over the entire life cycle, which go far beyond the pure effort of the data system. Numerous companies have already internally calculated the costs for an additional component and came to values between € 100 and up to € 4,000 per part. Of course the costs vary, depending on the industry.
How PARTsolutions supports you
From most of the newly created parts only a fraction would have actually been necessary. Regarding newly created parts that are actually necessary, it is important to ensure their clean creation.
With PARTsolutions, you will find already existing parts and spare their additional creation. If a component has to be newly created, the attributes can be automatically transferred from PARTsolutions to SAP or to the ERP system. Semantic rules improve the quality and correctness of newly created data. Duplicates are avoided and the parts costs can be significantly reduced.
In addition, PARTsolutions significantly reduces the proportion of administrative activities, enabling engineers to spend more time on creative product development.
