In this video, I talk more about how OpenBOM can help engineers by organizing calculations, rollups, and managing item data in central catalogs.
In the previous blog, I explained how OpenBOM allows you to create a BOM from every CAD software using unique plug-ins optimized to extract the Bill of Materials and share it downstream with production planners and purchasing.
Once, Bill of Materials is extracted from CAD, OpenBOM allows organizing various calculations – quantity rollups, cost, mass, and other rollups. OpenBOM Catalog(s) is a database of all business information about items – manufacturer, cost, supplier, description, and it is automatically linked to all BOMs created using the OpenBOM Reference-Instance data model.
Check this video.
OpenBOM provides a universal calculation engine to manage rollups and other calculations needed in the Bill of Materials. Instant connection of catalogs with business information about items gives you a single version of data about the product shared, calculated, and managed in a centralized form.
Best, Oleg @ openbom dot com.
