Video blog #14 – How to Quit the Chief Excel Officer Job?

Imagine you overcome your resistance to change and decided to leave Excel and move to OpenBOM. In this video today, I want to talk about what will happen to you if you do so. 

If you’re an engineer working on design… 

  • You will create automatically Bill of Materials from the CAD system
  • You will import all your BOMs from Excel (no manual data re-entry)
  • You will eliminate manual reporting, automatic OpenBOM report/export will do the job 
  • You will get rid of annoying calls from people asking you to update the BOM
  • People will stop asking you to send the last BOM file
  • You change the design in CAD and BOM is updated automatically. 

In addition, if you need to purchase parts… 

  • You will manage Quantity on Hands to control your stock level 
  • You will manage vendors and contact information aligned with catalogs. 
  • You will automate the process of planning capturing information from BOMs and generating RFQa and POs with visual and accurate information

Watch the video:


So, here is the summary of 4 nos and 1 yes. 





Finally… you will have free time to do some productive tasks and stop being Chief Excel Officer.
