Five Powerful Search Engines in One Place
The Parts Wizard has five Search Engines for five different
kinds of lookups - Search by Model, Search by Picture,
Search by Traits, Search by Keywords and the NEW
Custom Selection Criteria Search. All five Search
Engines are together in the same form to enable you to switch
from one search engine to another easily without losing any
basic Search Criteria already defined. If you decide that
one of the other search engines would work better for your
search, you can switch to it without exiting the form and without
losing your settings for the Manufacturer, Product Category and
Product Sub-Category. It's faster to use and easier to learn
- Live Exploded Parts Views
The Parts Wizard is well known for it's 'Point & Click'
exploded parts views. When you click on a part, the part information
is instantly displayed in the Part Details window.
The Parts Wizard supports multiple named views making it easy
to find the necessary parts in large or complex assemblies.
The exploded parts views for such assemblies are broken up into
several views. You can step through the views or select the

Tracks Part Number Changes
More than one part number can be associated with a part location
in the exploded parts view. This feature shows when more than
one part can be used in a given location or when a part number
was changed due to product redesign. Some manufacturers flag
the this change by production date while others use serial numbers.
The Parts Wizard contains notes detailing these part number
changes that can be viewed when you click on a part.
Sub-Assemblies Handled with Ease
The Parts Wizard currently supports an unlimited number of
sub-assemblies for every primary assembly. Each sub-assembly
can have multiple views just like the parent assembly and can
also have an unlimited number of sub-assemblies.
The Parts Wizard includes pictures to make product identification
easy. This is particularly valuable when a customer needs parts
for a pump, for example, but doesn't know what kind of pump he has.
By stepping through the pictures, your customer can pick the pump
And now, the Parts Wizard Library supports multiple pictures of
each item. For example, some items may have changed slightly in
appearance over the years. With multiple pictures, we can now
add new pictures to the Library without removing the old ones.
You can enter your selling prices for any product and have that
information displayed for every lookup. If provided by the
manufacturers, the Suggested Retail Price is included in the Library.
You can choose to display or hide this price to suit your needs.
