Bill of Materials Management
|Video: PDM Bill of Materials||
Efficiently and accurately maintain bill of materials (BOM) information with the BOM management solutions in SolidWorks Enterprise PDM (EPDM) software. Traditional maintenance of BOM information using standard spreadsheet tools is inefficient and error-prone with no direct link to the CAD data. The SolidWorks EPDM system offers a range of tools for making BOM information management more efficient, enabling you to export BOM data in multiple ways to use in downstream applications and systems, and giving non-CAD users access to BOM data.
Create individual BOM objects from existing CAD file structures that automatically update in parallel with the evolution of the CAD model, eliminating the frequent manual updates required when using spreadsheets. This provides the flexibility for your organization to utilize BOM data in the most productive way.
- Edit synchronized, versioned BOM objects
- Compare BOM objects to previous versions or the source CAD structure
- Route BOM objects through workflows for approvals
Connect your CAD data with your ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) or MRP (Manufacturing Resource Planning) systems, enabling you to easily update BOM information in other businesses enterprise systems
