by Intellinet Apr 10, 2018
The intellinet’s spare parts catalogue software is based on a modular design. Separate modules are there for different tasks. You can choose the one you require and simplify your tasks. The parts catalog software connects spare parts, service and product data (parts-lists, 2D drawings, photos, 3D models, prices, descriptive documentation like manuals etc.) out of various data sources (ERP, PLM, CMS, DMS, CAD system etc.). Let’s have a look at the various functions our parts catalog performs.
Authoring tool for the parts management process: As a authoring tool it serves the creation of catalogues, configuration of layouts and content. All the data and documents can be added manually (through Database Publishing) or can flow in directly over interfaces.
The parts data, graphics, documents are imported and integrated to form the parts catalog software.
The data is processed, stored and can be edited any time.
A centrally stored data repository (use of SQL database as central data memory) is created in a way that it is accessible to everyone.
Continuous updation of parts information.
User management ensures data security.
The catalog is available in 10+ languages across 70 countries.
Documentation: The entire technical data is integrated with the data related to parts lists and assemblies. Intelli Service Information communicates the technical information to all its users. This helps in keeping the dealers and distributors updated with the latest technical information, service instructions and a lot more.
The documents and files are integrated.
The technical documents are filed together and can be updated. They are intelligently linked with parts list, assemblies and other data (documents, files).
Technical bulletins are issued periodically. The instruction and maintenance manuals, maintenance and delivery documents, operating manuals, checklists, software downloads are supplied as addition to the spare parts catalogue.
Integration: The parts catalog software is integrated with IT systems including the OCI (Open Catalogue Interface), the catalogue export to third party systems and translation interface. It also connects the data world of leading systems like ERP/PDM/PLM to the service information system.
