Advantages for enterprises and employees

  • Avoid costs and liability risks with monitored, company-wide parts inventory
  • Efficiently manage your parts inventory with digital processes
  • Find parts faster and improve reuse
  • Ensure materials compliance with regulatory standards such as REACH and RoHS

Monitored, company-wide parts inventory avoids costs and liability risks

When it comes to managing parts, rapid proliferation and inconsistencies result in high costs: According to the company Cadenas, every part creates 500 euros or more in process costs during the course of its inventory management. With an inventory of 100,000 parts, even 0.5 percent fewer parts could result in annual cost savings of 250,000 euros.

As a single source of truth, CONTACT Elements provides an overview of the company-wide material master. Materials Management synchronizes the master across the boundaries of systems such as PLM, ERP and CAD and ensures full transparency and reliable monitoring with a logically centralized data stock and digital processes.

Efficiently manage parts inventories with digital processes

When new parts are introduced, technical changes are made or discontinued parts are recorded, monitored digital processes ensure an up-to-date, consistent and lean material inventory. You benefit from reduced costs and efficient warehouse and supply chain logistics. Materials Management offers clear status monitoring of all parts and workflows, thus providing digital support for decision-making and release processes.

Find parts faster and improve reuse

Finding and comparing parts quickly and reliably is crucial for efficient product development. Powerful search functions make it possible to find suitable repeat parts faster: Perform searches based on simple or complex attributes, usage, 3D model specifications, and along class hierarchies. This allows you to avoid unnecessary new parts and thus high subsequent costs as well as the risks associated with new parts. You can also use eCl@ss, a global data standard classifying goods.

Ensure materials compliance with regulatory standards such as REACH and RoHS

Meet legal requirements regarding materials compliance, for example REACH, RoHS or other standards. Coordinated material catalogs and automatic documentation ensure that you can always provide documentary evidence that you comply with regulations. You can also link your parts management facility to material analyses and reporting, for example. This ensures full transparency regarding the use of materials in your products.
