Centric Software has released InSight 6.0, which it describes as an off-the-shelf product intelligent search application. The offering is designed to discover and classify all structured and unstructured product information stored behind the firewall in disparate, enterprisewide systems. InSight further expedites access to product documents, technical drawings, bills of material, ERP records and other content.

The company says InSight discovers and classifies results based on common product attributes from multiple systems, such as CAD, PLM, PDM and ERP systems, as well as office documents, PDFs and e-mail files, says Centric. Features include comparisons of results, multiple options to manage results and respect for established network and data security restrictions that protect document sources, only allowing access based on roles.

Centric claims that for engineering and manufacturing teams in automotive, aerospace and consumer goods, InSight 6.0 expedites just-in-time access to technical drawings, manuals and other documents for parts manufacturing, parts reuse or part replacement. The company adds that the software recognizes duplicate results, categorizes results against data types and gives users options to navigate through un-indexed document relationships. To manage results, users can select to share documents or organize them in a project folder for secure sharing with a cross-functional team over the Internet. Selected unmanaged files instantly become manageable with the automatic assignment of revision control identity and population of relevant data management tags.
