1. Pierson Workholding
Pierson Workholding is Using OpenBOM For A Complete Design To Manufacture In-house Process. OpenBOM Order BOMs and POs automatically created.
“We looked at a lot of options for creating and managing Bill of Materials, the CAD based product didn’t have the ability to create Planning BOMs and Purchase Orders (which we need) and Excel didn’t have any connection to our design process (CAD), which we also required,” says Carlos. “OpenBOM offers a complete Design to Purchase process which includes BOM, Order (planning) Planning BOMs, Vendor Lists and Purchase Orders. As well as inventory control of Quantity on Hand”
Carlos goes on to say “OpenBOM was easy to implement and setup. After a few 30 minute meetings with the OpenBOM support team, I had a functional configuration for a production test, created actual PO’s, and also used the Order BOM feature to create setup data for the circuit board assembly process. Adding additional properties with drop-down list selections allows me to capture setup data related to each part. That data is easily sorted and parsed into actions needed to get a PCB manufactured.”
