This solution provides insight to help engineers reuse parts, consolidate material usage across families of like parts and understand the impact of introducing a new part into the supply network
Specifications Management and Compliance
  • Learn if consolidation across part families will be beneficial
  • Determine which materials are suitable for a new design
  • See common specification combinations at a glance
New Product Planning
  • Determine if a new part design meets cost targets
  • Know what changes will reduce the price of a part
  • Accurately determine if a part should be bought
  • Explore ways to collaborate early in the design process to make a part better and cheaper
Part Rationalization
  • Find parts of similar design for re-use
  • Find parts of common design for consolidation
  • Find parts of similar design but varying materials for material rationalization
Comparable Parts Chart
Quickly compare prices, part configurations and details of similar parts being purchased from other suppliers.View part configurations and details of similar parts being purchased from other suppliers. You can also click on Jump to Alternate Supplier to find other manufacturers for the part in a specific region.
During the CAD design process, see similar parts that are already in the supply network with the powerful Visual Part Display. No more starting a design from scratch when part revisions are requested. The Engineering Solution shows you what comparable parts actually look like as well as all the technical part detail you need – including cost.
Get your costs in line early in the design process with the Engineering Solution. You'll be able to see not only the same part as originally specified, but also an approved supplier who could manufacture the part before you hand off the drawings to procurement, reducing costly back and forth conversations. This intelligence allows you to design for the supply network while maintaining product development excellence and superior quality. All of this helps you get products to market more quickly and more inexpensively.
Consolidate the number of raw material types you specify, to fit within the existing supply network because now you and your entire engineering team will have visibility through the entire development and procurement process across the global organization. The Engineering Solution easily adapts across multiple, diverse projects and products, making it an invaluable clearing house for engineering data for your global engineering team.
Set a standard and guidelines for future engineering development. You'll be able to see not only the same part as originally specified, but also an approved supplier who could manufacture the part before you hand off the drawings to procurement, reducing costly back and forth conversations. This intelligence allows you to design for the supply network while maintaining product development excellence and superior quality. All of this helps you get products to market more quickly and more inexpensively.
Use the exact data views that you need, even get custom views. so you can pinpoint the exact part and details you need to answer your current question.During set up, your Birlasoft team will work with you to assure that the inputs you need are programmed into the system and the views you need will be available upon implementation. Because Birlasoft handles the implementation, you get quick, easy set up and aggregation of data into the system – with no need to tie up your internal IT department.
Predict supply network needs based on raw material changes with the What If Dashboard. What if you change the part? Birlasoft 's strategic What If Solution clearly lays out each part and material choice within each group of parts so you can see the big picture. The Material Specification Solution can also give you these answers. Using supplier part fit metrics, the software lets you baseline and benchmark your raw material specifications to see how fragmented they are, based on supplier, material or part. This way, you'll be able to see how you might rationalize raw materials, suppliers or parts, driving costs and time to market down.
Respond Quickly to Customer RFQ's. With Birlasoft 's software, you can quickly create a custom quotation from a customer Request for Quote (RFQ). You can target price a Bill of Material (BOM) for assemblies and new products using existing and/or new part designs.
Do "What If" analysis with alternate parts and alternate suppliers. to provide purchasing a recommended Bill of Suppliers. Through the system, you are then able to help predict capacity, quality and materials issues, as well as determine profitability.
