Services | SID - similar item detection
SID - similar item detection | Reduce the Variety of Parts
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 at different conditions.
Target group: Strategic and operational procurement | Product development
Algorithms find similarities | within seconds
Fact-based arguments for renegotiations with suppliers are always welcome. The arguments, that our SID-Analysis provides, are absolutely "waterproof". 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.
SID-Analyses are suitable e.g. as a basis for pooling in procurement
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 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.
Unexpected possibilities for pooling
For companies it is important, to find their way through large amount of Items in order to avoid redundancies and increase the reuse of components. With SID - similar item detection and SDD - similar drawing detection you can find similar components or assemblies within seconds - even in hundreds of thousands of items.
