A part has many descriptors including a unique identification number, a revision identification, a text description, a graphical depiction, a configuration type (assembly or component), and a parts list if it’s an assembly. Managing these descriptors along with their inter-relations to other parts in your product library is a challenge. Design engineers prefer a structured tree view of their design whereas a production planner prefers a table view showing a list of parts. Visidian Connect uses a unique blend of part tree and parts list view that makes it easy for part design, part manufacture, and overall part comprehension. Visidian Connect’s dynamic part exploration is the only comprehensive tool to tie in part tree, part list, part drawing and bill of materials. Highlight any item in the aforementioned list and you’ll quickly see it’s position and relationship to the rest of the assembly. Here are some additional details:
- Part Meta Data – Register part details, part designation, part generation, and part association.
- Part Import – Quickly import parts and part data from previous designs to create derivative products.
- Dynamic Part Views – View part tree with parts list, part tree with document view, or part tree with BOM. Select the best view for your day to day activities.
- Part Data Export – Export complete part details to Microsoft Excel.
