3DS Exalead ii for Spare Parts
Search-based innovation brings one-stop information access and consumer-style simplicity to spare parts management
Developed in close cooperation with 3DS Exalead’s industrial clients, 3DS Exalead ii for Spare Parts helps companies rapidly break through the big challenges to accomplishing a deceptively simple mission: delivering the right spare part to the right place as quickly and economically as possible.
The Spare Parts Challenge
Why is this mission so challenging? First and foremost, it is difficult because most companies’ spare parts inventories are siloed in multiple systems around the globe, including ERP systems, databases, spreadsheets...even legacy VT/mainframe apps no one even understands anymore. As a result, many front-line and back office managers are in a difficult position with:
- No simple way to look up a part worldwide
- No global reporting on key performance indicators (KPIs)
- PLM data that is completely separated from supply / inventory data
These handicaps make it very difficult to optimize inventory levels and supply chain effectiveness in order to achieve maximum cost efficiency and meet customer satisfaction and product quality goals. To make matters worse, existing solutions like data warehousing and global MDM are expensive, complex and risky.
