MRO and Spare Parts Management Considerations

Is There a Way to Avoid Lengthy Catalog Numbers?


A sales configurator needs to be able to "decipher" products' specifications from a rule-based, constructed catalog number. Part number users should query vendors to determine whether their enterprise solutions cater to the needs of industrial automation manufacturers.
