A Winning Strategy
Reusing an existing part is estimated to avoid $20,000 in expenses on average - a number which doesn't include tooling or fixtures.
Reuse initiative often run out of steam, however, because designers lack enabling tools to find existing designs.
CADseek Adviser Live-Search provides a solution which has the benefit of not requiring designers to change their existing workflows because Adviser is effectively part of CAD.
In an unobtrusive manner CADseek Adviser Live-Search monitors a design session, and when major changes are committed to the model Adviser performs a search for existing models with reuse potential.
