Services | SID - similar item detection
It is often difficult, not to lose overview in hundreds of thousands of Items. Accordingly, it is not uncommon to find similar components that are procured in similar quantities and purchased to different conditions.
Target group: Strategic and operational procurement | Product development
Fact-based arguments for renegotiations with suppliers are always welcome. The arguments, that our SID Analysis provides, are absolutely "waterproof". However, the similarity of items is subjective. Therefore, the Data-Driven Software PSI - predictive saving identifier offers the perfect setting options to meet all characteristics of similarities.
SID-Analyses are suitable e.g. as a basis for pooling in the procurement department
Identify similar Items in hundreds of thousands of .pdf files? With "SDD - similar drawing detection", our algorithms even find similar drawings. The evaluation is performed on neutral formats such as .pdf or .tiff files and is highly precise. This enables our customers to analyze even older data - where no 3D models exist. It is easy to identify illogical pricestructures within a very short time.
Of course, it is even better to avoid similar components directly in the development departement. Our CostChecker supports engineers in this area with fully integrated SID Analysis.
