The IGD Module Allows Users to Find Product Related Data Using an Interactive Graphic
Online PR News – 08-February-2013 – Panama City/Florida – Professional Systems Associates, Inc. (PSA) announces the addition of the Interactive Graphic Display (IGD) module to their Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, CMPRO. The IGD module allows users to interact with images to quickly discover product related data.
The IGD module delivers data through an interface that focuses on images, rather than text. This feature solves issues related to looking for product data without knowing the name or part number for specific items. Allowing users to search for data using images improves the ease of use with respect to manufacturing and maintaining items managed in CMPRO.
Two-dimensional images are created using an external graphics application. Those images are loaded into CMPRO and hotspot links to drawing and part information are identified. With hotspot links in place, users click an area of the drawing to expand access to the supporting information.
Moe Parker, CEO of PSA, stated, “We are excited about the IGD module because it allows CMPRO users of all levels to drill down using interactive graphics to locate drawing, part, and document information.” Mr. Parker continues, “Because this module does not require the CMPRO user to have design or modeling software it enhances the ease of use of CMPRO.”
The IGD module is included in the CMPRO build released December 2012. For more information about this and other CMPRO features contact PSA at www.psasys.com
