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.
Integrated into your ERP system, you can conveniently start the SIMILIA software using the SIMILIA AUTOMATION extension without having to launch a separate application.
You do not leave your familiar work interface and benefit from the clear presentation of all data relevant for work preparation and production. You can display the results of your search in the browser or in an Excel spreadsheet. Accelerate the processes and continuously utilize the capacity of your production.
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.
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.
