Parker-Hannifin awarded for parts management innovation

Cleveland, Ohio-based motion and control technology manufacturer Parker Hannifin Corp. has been honored by Frost Publishing, receiving a 2016 Manufacturing Leadership Award for their forward-thinking implementation of CADENAS PARTsolutions’ Strategic Parts Management (SPM) software. CADENAS PARTsolutions, a software firm located in Cincinnati, are the architects of the platform and key consultants used to implement the initiative.

“With this strategic parts management implementation we are helping Parker Hannifin achieve a key organizational goal, reducing engineering time by fostering reuse of components throughout Parker Divisions,” says Tim Thomas, PARTsolutions CEO. “Every time a part is reused, using the PARTsolutions Strategic Parts Management system, Parker is saving money and time through the entire product lifecycle and getting Parker products to market faster.”

With the intent of streamlining the use of 3D parts, Parker teamed up with CADENAS PARTsolutions to introduce an enterprise-wide “Strategic Parts Management” project, using a centralized database of 3D parts and data from which engineers can easily find and reuse the component they need. The end goal is to promote divisional and interdivisional re-use of parts as well as give purchasing visibility to enterprise quantities of standard parts.
