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.
