Across the DoD and within third party providers, Technical Data Packages (TDPs) are managed in a wide array of formats across literally thousands of independent data repositories. Unlike other competing products, ours does not need proprietary TDPs to be stored in a single, central repository. Instead, it acts as mediator between these many independent repositories, tying data together in a SmartThread™.
SmartThread™ is the mediator between the many independent repositories for TDPs. Unlike other competing products, SmartThread™ does not need proprietary TDPs to be stored in a single, central repository. Furthermore, SmartThread™ does not require TDPs to be in any particular format. When integrating a new repository,SmartThread™ automatically extracts the information it needs for transactions and intelligent searching.
SmartThread™ implements intelligent search capabilities that allow users to search using a combination of parameters and the geometric similarity of parts. Parameter-based searches narrow down candidate parts based on metadata such as part type, manufacturer, or material. Geometric features can be used to further refine searches. For example, the user can identify a similar part in the database or provide an existing 3D model that is similar to the part they wish to find. These search results also provide a percent of match to refine the best choices to meet your needs
