Manufacturing & Work Preparation


Use validated data
for your work preparation
Minimise friction losses.

Reuse valuable expertise

Optimization of resource planning

Reduction of complexity and effort

By using SIMILIA, you gain an overview of already created manufacturing documents, such as workflows, parts lists, tools or CNC programs, of similar or identical parts.

Use the know-how of manufacturing similar parts across orders to systematically increase the quality of your production and optimize work preparation. By combining similar parts, you save setup times, and tools and machines are used more efficiently. Great potential lies in the analysis and combination of similar parts. This avoids doing twice the work and reduces the complexity of the part variety. Reliable manufacturing processes increase your delivery reliability and customer satisfaction.

GATEKEEPER - Check data

Before you create new parts lists, workflows or CNC programs, use the GATEKEEPER extension to check your database for similar or identical parts.

Defined automatisms trigger data checking processes. If you have found reusable documents, you save valuable resources and avoid duplication of work. Existing expertise from past customer orders can be used and helps to continuously improve quality in production.

An elaborate classification can lead to different allocation of data within a company, making it difficult to retrieve.

With the CLASSIFICATION TOOLKIT, classification is based on the geometry. This serves as a unique feature. All other assignable information is merged without changing the original source. SIMILIA thus serves you as a data cockpit with a 360-degree view.

DUPLICATE SEARCH - Finding duplicates

Organize your production optimally by implementing a consistent common parts strategy.

If the number of variants is reduced, identical or similar production orders can be combined into a larger batch size. This saves setup time. With the DUPLICATE SEARCH extension, you can search your database for duplicates and consistently reduce them. Not only 3D data is matched, but also the associated meta information.
