CADENAS PARTsolutions extends PLM to better manage standard and supplier parts.

Up to 45 percent of engineering time is spent searching for or redrawing industry standard and commercial supplier parts. That’s wasted, non-value added design time.

The CADENAS PARTsolutions® team is showing off the PARTsolutions Strategic Parts Management system today at the Siemens PLM World annual user conference . The software platform helps engineering teams better manage their standard and supplier parts so they can spend more time on value-added design.

“Up to 45 percent of engineering time is spent searching for or redrawing industry standard and commercial supplier parts.
