Professional Systems Associates, Inc. (PSA; Panama City, Fla.) 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.
The IGD module is included in the CMPRO build released December 2012.
