Products - Custom Apps

Many companies use Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) ''AS-IS'' for their Product Development Process (PDP). In reality, Product based / Process based tasks are needed frequently and this is time consuming and non-productive. This could be addressed by developing a Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) add-on customized application to enhance design productivity, reduce user intervention, and/or prevent design errors. Also, this significantly increases Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) efficiency and adoption, thus maximizing your Creo utilization.

CADOpt provides Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) add-on application development services (using Creo API's like Toolkit, JLink, WebLink, VB) for all your design, tooling, etc related engineering process specific needs. Below are few applications developed for many companies, who have been using these for many years and the same has been tested, proven and error free...

About Auto Numbering

A part number is a unique marker of compiled attributes that defines the product. Part numbers are used within a company as a way for users and departments to identify and keep record of parts. Classifying parts in a standardized way can be productive in many manufacturing processes.

For a part number system to function well, it is essential to establish good processes for generating part numbers and to use a system that is well equipped to manage part numbers. Regardless of part numbering system, it is important to make sure to avoid duplicate part numbers. Using the exact number for two entirely different parts can cause serious problems including delays on the manufacturing line, error in BOM and incorrect part sourcing. These problems can ultimately hit your profit margin. Using the same part number for two different parts seems like an obvious downfall to avoid. It can happen when more than one user has the authority to create a part number or lack of sequence in part number creation. Additionally, reaching the end of a number series (e.g. 999) can cause confusion that may unintentionally lead to part number duplication. It is time to get expert assistance who can help you avoid these issues.
