OpenBOM Announces Major Enhancements For OpenBOM Digital Thread SaaS Platform including Free Design Projects service, Custom Objects, and New Integrations with Autodesk Platform Services

OpenBOM, a leading provider of cloud-native PLM and PDM solutions, is excited to announce a major set of enhancements in its platform focusing on design data management, collaboration, flexible data management, and integration with Autodesk Platform Services. These enhancements not only solidify OpenBOM’s commitment to flexibility and configurability but also further its mission to provide out-of-the-box solutions that can be custom-tailored to various customer needs.

Comprehensive File Management Using Design Projects

Acknowledging the continued relevance of files in design and engineering, OpenBOM is enhancing its file management capabilities. Following the introduction of collaborative engineering solution Drive features last year, OpenBOM launched its Design Projects file management system, which will be available as part of OpenBOM’s FREE subscription. 

OpenBOM’s Design Projects aim to democratize cloud data management by catering to engineers and hard-tech companies that rely on files for design and project collaboration. This feature will include capabilities such as check-in/check-out and release functionalities, ensuring that users can synchronize their files on-demand in both offline and online work.

Seamless Integration with Cloud Design Systems and Storages 

Recognizing the increasing adoption of cloud-based CAD and other design systems, OpenBOM introduces integrations with cloud design storages and systems. The initial integration will be with Autodesk Platform Services (APS), previously known as Autodesk Forge, offering users a seamless data connection between Autodesk and OpenBOM.

OpenBOM Custom Objects: A Game-Changer in SaaS PLM Data Management

Manufacturing entities familiar with OpenBOM’s current data management system will now be able to tailor the data model entirely and define and manage custom objects, such as Requirements, Specifications, Products, Quality Documents, and more. The feature aims to provide users with a fully flexible data model, built on a user-friendly interface with spreadsheet-like functionalities.

New Property Type: The Object Reference

This new property type will allow users to point from one property to another, creating flexible links between different OpenBOM objects. Initially, these references will become linkable, with plans to integrate them into OpenBOM’s Graph Navigator, enhancing user navigation between linked objects.

“For the last four years, OpenBOM grew to become a global robust and scalable data management platform capable of supporting engineers and hard tech companies across the globe. Ranked at the top of G2 PLM Grid, OpenBOM is expanding to provide a combination of features for both free and open source projects, SME manufacturing business, and Fortune 500 enterprises” says Oleg Shilovitsky, CEO and co-founder of OpenBOM. “OpenBOM’s upcoming release promises significant advancements, aimed at providing unparalleled value to engineers, industrial companies, robotics teams, and educational institutions”.
