OpenBOM Enterprise Integrations and APIs

Manufacturing and product development professionals use a variety of software applications to manage their work. Therefore the demand of every engineering team or manufacturing company is to have an easy way to integrate systems and seamlessly transfer information to organize information flow. Data silos are very painful and can hurt companies to streamline their processes and connect people and external organizations. 

OpenBOM was created with the open mindset of how the system can help to organize information, collaborate between people and organization, and make information open and available to everyone who needs it. Openness is reflected in OpenBOM’s flexibility, data model, licensing model, and most importantly in the ability to integrate with other systems.

OpenBOM Enterprise provides powerful integrations that connect these applications, making it possible to move data between them manually or automatically. This post gives you an overview of the integrations available in OpenBOM, as well as how they can benefit your workflow. 

Import / export functionality

OpenBOM provides ready-to-use tools and commands to import and export information at any time. They include the ability to import basic OpenBOM objects (catalogs, Bill of materials, vendor lists, etc.) Combined with flexible on the fly data model creation, OpenBOM gives you an easy way to build the foundation of your data management. 

OpenBOM supports Excel and Google Spreadsheets to import data. The data can be easily formatted for import. Check for more information about importing data from spreadsheets in our training library. I recommend you to check the following blog article for more information – An Ultimate Guide On How To Import Your Spreadsheet Data To OpenBOM.

Out-of-the-box Integration

At OpenBOM we built a large number of integrations that are available out of the box and can be downloaded and installed immediately. Check the OpenBOM Integration page for more information. Among these integrations: 

  1. Integration with CAD systems (both cloud and desktop)
  2. Integrations with PDM and PLM tools 
  3. Integration with ERP and financial applications

API and Integration Toolkit 

API effort is an important element of OpenBOM openness philosophy. OpenBOM has a modern cloud-native system that is built on microservice architecture. So, API is in the blood of everything we do. At OpenBOM we provide open REST API interfaces to help customers and partners to develop their solutions of creating custom integrations to export/import data or connect OpenBOM to other applications and services. 

Check more information about how you can use API to access data and integrate with OpenBOM. Also, check the list of OpenBOM partners and certified consultants

Custom Integrations and Partnership Offering

One size doesn’t fit all, therefore OpenBOM would be happy to help you to build a custom integration or connect you with our partners and certified consultants that can help you with your integration effort. 

If you would like to build an integration that is not listed on our OpenBOM Integration page, please contact us and we would be happy to help.

Conclusion: 

OpenBOM provides a robust set of infrastructure and APIs to enable data integration, import, exports, data integration, and connectivity with other engineering and enterprise applications. It includes out-of-the-box spreadsheet import-export, ready-to-be-used CAD integrations with one-click BOM functionality, integrations with ERP and financial applications as well as public REST API and integration toolkit.
