How CATIM is using Autodesk Fusion 360 and OpenBOM to achieve outstanding quality

CATIM Bill of Materials requirements is as diverse as their products!  According to CATIM Solution Architect, “Combining BOMs from disparate design systems was next to impossible using Excel”.

Creating Automation and Technology In Motion – that’s what is all about. CATIM designs and manufactures a wide variety of automation solutions for buildings, factories and office space serving a variety of businesses and industries.  CATIM products are cross-functional and include robotic and mechatronics, IoT, solar, power, PLC and other automation components just to name a few.  

CATIM discovered OpenBOM out of simple necessity.  “We needed some way to make a BOM from Autodesk’s Fusion 360,” says their Design Manager. “I went to my keyboard and quickly discovered OpenBOM.  We gave it a try and are now saving literally hundreds of hours a year with OpenBOM”.

OpenBOM seamlessly integrates with Autodesk Fusion 360 and has the flexibility to manage data for CATIM. Read more about what CATIM does with OpenBOM here


The complexity of products today cannot be managed with tools like Excel. CATIM identified it clearly and was on the path to find a solution. OpenBOM was an obvious one. Fully integrated within Autodesk Fusion 360, it gives you a natural and easy path to solve the problem with the fastest possible ROI.
