Bill of Materials (BOM) Editing
|Video: Edit Named BOMs||
The ability to edit bill of materials (BOM) data to meet multiple needs and provide accurate, up-to-date information for everyone in the manufacturing process has become critical for successful manufacturers. Edit and utilize BOM information to use in downstream applications and systems with SolidWorks Enterprise PDM (EPDM) BOM editing capabilities. These tools enable you to define all the materials that comprise a product—including mechanical parts, electrical components, software, documentation, and packaging—and edit BOM data for export and use by both CAD and non-CAD users.
With the SolidWorks EPDM system, you can use easy-to-configure templates to pull together all necessary product structure information and automate BOM information preparation.
BOM editing tools include:
Customized BOM Templates
Use templates to display BOM information in customized formats to meet the specific needs of a user or group. The templates allow you to present BOM data in unique formats needed by different departments, such as design, engineering, purchasing, or manufacturing.
Named BOM Editing, Comparing, and Routing
Create “named” BOMs from existing CAD model structures. Edit these individual objects to meet specific needs, compare different versions of named BOMs or CAD file structures for consistency, and route them through electronic workflows. You can also update named BOMs from CAD file structures whenever CAD data is modified, and add non-modeled items, such as glue, paint, and other items.
