Boeing Implements PARTsolutions for 3D Part Catalog Management

MILFORD, OH--(Marketwire - June 9, 2009) - PARTsolutions, LLC, a global provider of product lifecycle management solutions (PLM) for 3D part catalog management and hosting, today announced that The Boeing Company has entered into a multiyear agreement with PARTsolutions for software and services.

PARTsolutions 3D part catalog management software enables centralized, global access to proprietary, commercial, and standards based 3D parts, which are configurable in any CAD-native format with all associated attribute information to ensure fast part access, reuse, and compliance. PARTsolutions geometric search and compare technologies have been implemented and are being utilized in design reuse scenarios on various programs to reduce the introduction of duplicate parts to achieve dramatic cost savings.

"PARTsolutions is excited that Boeing is adopting our technology and deploying the suite across the Boeing enterprise," said Tim Thomas, CEO of PARTsolutions. "The business value to Boeing is well understood, and users will have the ability to share data across multiple CAD systems and across product programs with a centralized catalog database."

"Boeing has carefully developed its vision for Product Standards as Digital Data (PSDD), which includes the concept of utilizing a single source of shape data for standard part geometry to allow automatic standard parts model creation just in time instead of just in case," said Joe Hafner, Product Manager for PARTsolutions, The Boeing Company. "PARTsolutions is a component of our complete solution, as PARTsolutions integrates with all Boeing enterprise-wide design engineering technologies."

The PARTsolutions product suite delivers value to manufacturers and their supply chain through catalog solutions which streamline design collaboration for globally distributed teams. PARTsolutions is the only CAD-Native 3D part catalog management solution designed to preserve 3D standard part catalog content independent of CAD system or CAD version, thereby enabling 3D standard part catalog stability for current and future engineering design environments. The net result is designers can find approved standard parts fast with confidence to incorporate into their designs, to reduce product development costs, catalog management costs, and inventory costs.
