After selecting the parametric search parameters, the customer would see the resulting list of parts that matched all of the characteristics that had been selected.  The original query showed us that there were almost 10,000 parts that matched the word “clutch”, but once we limited the search to only the technical characteristics that interested us, the records that matched all characteristics numbered just 20 records.

Note that, at each iteration of the technical characteristics search, the customer received a refined list of technical characteristics that appeared only in the parts selected thus far.

Once the customer found a set of parts that matched the criteria, he could view individual parts to see the set of all technical characteristics that applied to an individual part. Further, the customer could find the manufacturer, the supporting contracts, or any of the other pieces of information in the cross-referenced databases.

At the bottom of the screen were links to those additional databases. By selecting one of these cross-references, the customer could link to that database and view additional part information.

These features illustrate how the capabilities of the Terabase®/SRF search engine, Terabase’s development expertise, and Terabase’s familiarity with defense logistics information added important functionality to the Classic Haystack product. Additional application notes in this series provide further examples of Terabase’s capabilities.
