There is an incredible power in the evaluation of all your material and product data. It identifies „cost guzzlers“ and cost drivers as well as preferred parts dynamically. With the help of intelligent evaluation of all materials, individual parts, subassemblies and products, it recognizes the interwoven network of all connections. It takes into account references, shoring, frequencies, and current prices and consumption. At the same time, duplicates are recorded. With KPIs the valence for part usage is determined and controlled by you. This is proven to reduce costs, quickly and sustainably.
In the TOP-DOWN view you can see the entire product structure including further sub-assemblies down to any depth. It does not matter whether you manage your data in a PDM system or have stored them on a file server. SIMILIA PRODUCT INTELLIGENCE is able to recognize and display the product structure based on the CAD data.
Structure BOMs can be easily created and exported (e.g. to Excel). The BOM is also supplemented with existing attributes that are available from the ERP system.
Within seconds, you can see in which other assemblies and in which number the individual parts and components are directly installed. Via this BOTTOM-UP-VIEW you can immediately see how strongly the items or assemblies are integrated or installed in higher-level assemblies and products. The frequencies are recorded immediately. This allocation is updated dynamically.
The advantages of the geometric similarity search become particularly clear in this way. This function can be applied to any dataset at any time. Thereby you extend the possibilities to reduce your material costs. You immediately recognize the cross connections to other similar and very similar materials. By evaluating the KPI values, you can decide whether, for example, material A should be replaced by material B because material B has a higher degree of cross-linking. In this way, you reduce costs. You make the best possible use of resources. You increase your competitiveness. You become more successful. You become more profitable.
SIMILIA can be integrated into almost any IT system landscape. The heterogeneity of the structures that have grown up in the company is irrelevant. This is particularly common in medium-sized companies.
SIMILIA is installed and commissioned at a fixed price based on a standardized process flow. The costs are clearly and transparently quantified. No "ifs and buts". The system can be subsequently configured by the customer. Using this technology, the operation of SIMILIA is permanently robust. We thus guarantee continuous operation. Your data remains in your company, SIMILIA is not a cloud.
