The Case Against Intelligent Part Numbers

February 13, 2020
10:00 AM - 10:30 AM ET

Register for our webinar, The Case Against Intelligent Part Numbers

Part numbers were created to identify and catalog different items and soon after, intelligent part numbers were established. Taking it a step further, intelligent part numbers are used to capture and display further descriptive characteristics of each unique item. However, databases have become much more affordable and available, so we started wondering if intelligent numbers are even needed today.  

Join us on Thursday, February 13th at 10 AM ET for our webinar as TriMech Application Engineer, Keith Thompson, dives into this topic and looks at the difference between simple "dumb" part numbers and intelligent part numbers. He will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of both, how storage databases impact the necessity and how SOLIDWORKS PDM can create and use part numbers. 

In this webinar, Keith will teach you:

  • Pros & cons of intelligent part numbers
  • Why intelligent part numbers no longer make sense
  • Why simple part numbers are easier to use
  • The value of databases for part numbers
  • How PDM can create and use part numbers
