Spare parts management and digital twin
For the manufacturing industry, spare parts management is an important part of the aftersales business. Whenever machines are in operation around the clock, wear and tear and breakdowns are an unwanted but constant companion. For any maintenance or repair of a damaged machine, it is essential to identify and order spare parts quickly and correctly. To do this, the maintenance engineer needs an overall view of the affected machine, appropriate documentation, and instructions for installation and removal, possibly also as a video or 3D drawing.
Modern spare parts management uses the potential of digitalization. The self-service portal, which optimizes communication between the customer and the service provider and drastically simplifies certain processes, becomes the key element.
