QBuild Corporation: CADLink for SOLIDWORKS
About QBuild Corporation:
QBuild Corporation provides integration solutions to bridge the gap between engineering and ERP systems. QBuild offers a comprehensive suite of ERP tools built for engineers using SolidWorks® including an advanced ERP part search tool, BOM and item data integration, as well as a bolt-on Engineering Change system that integrates PDM Enterprise with ERP; it is compatible with Enterprise PDM.
Our staff combines engineering and software development skills to provide you with a single interface to design and work with your ERP system.
CADLink is a turnkey system designed to tightly connect your design information to your ERP system. It allows engineering designers to view, modify, update and create ERP engineering information such as bill of materials and item master data without ever leaving SOLIDWORKS. CADLink saves significant Engineering resources: typical payback period is six months or less. The real-time, two-way link between engineering design and ERP also allows Engineering to benefit from item description standardization already in your ERP database.
Production benefits from having drawing information identical to work order documentation eliminating ambiguity and reducing rework and scrap. CADLink creates the building blocks that will allow you to automate and integrate your entire revision and Engineering Change Order Process. The ECN Manager module bolts onto CADLink providing engineers with critical change information such as inventory, open work order and sales orders as engineering changes are made.
This allows your engineering team to make informed decisions regarding stock disposition and inventory rework requirements.
