What is EXALEAD OnePart?
EXALEAD OnePart is a business discovery Web Application that allows you to quickly and easily find and reuse existing parts, 2D/3D designs and related documentation — saving time and money across your company.
How does it work?
With EXALEAD OnePart you can explore legacy parts and related 2D/3D designs, gaining immediate insight into vast amounts of previously hidden data.
You can further refine your search using side-by-side comparisons to identify the right part for reuse. When a similar part is discovered, you can also analyze important related documentation like specifications, testing, validation, and certification material in multiple formats (such as .xls & .pdf) to facilitate optimal reuse and a complete view of the situation.
Leveraging proven Web technologies EXALEAD OnePart Finds, Compares, and Analyzes Parts from multiple data sources to make the right Part instantly available to you.

Why You Need EXALEAD OnePart
Stop creating New Parts, when you can Reuse the Ones you already have!
Your High Cost of Designing Parts
Designers and engineers regularly make critical decisions that can introduce significant costs into your company. Engineers are designing more and more new parts every day. Why don’t they just find and reuse similar or equivalent parts that already exist inside your company’s legacy data assets?
Because searching for parts and related information is very time-consuming and potentially error-prone today.
The Need to Find Similar Parts
Without an ultra-efficient tool to rapidly find and compare similar parts hidden inside data sources and silos scattered throughout your company, design engineers simply choose to recreate the part rather than spend unproductive time searching. Although they may not realize it, creating new parts impacts the bottom line. Substantial time and costs are incurred if you need to acquire or produce new parts, leading to more production procedures, quality controls, and inventory into stock.
The Solution is EXALEAD OnePart
With EXALEAD OnePart, engineers, managers, technicians, and procurement specialists can quickly and easily find and reuse existing parts, product designs and other related information located anywhere inside the organization, even beyond obvious PDM and PLM repositories.
Optimized reuse of parts, designs and related documentation, thus accelerating product development and delivery and decreasing design, material, manufacturing, and storage costs.
EXALEAD OnePart helped Bird Technologies reduce the number of duplicate parts in its database by 75%.
