There is a large number of departments that work with item lists and bill of materials to fulfill their tasks, such as cost estimation, work preparation or procurement. Do you know the challenges associated with this process?
Combine Your MCAD and ECAD BOMs - for a Seamless Collaboration
Although the importance of the interdisciplinary mechatronic approach is undoubted, everyday work often looks different. During product development, both a bill of materials in MCAD and in ECAD are created. These exist side by side, sometimes complementing each other, sometimes overlapping. There is no single data source that can be accessed by all the people and departments involved.
Challenges in Creating Bills of Materials
Data Quality up, Costs down
Advantages of a Mechatronic Bill of Materials
The advantages for a mechatronic bill of materials are clear.
CIDEON Workshops for Mechatronics & BOMs
Our mechatronics & BOM workshops are standardized consulting methods for MCAD and ECAD. We help you to identify your potentials and to develop an overall solution to master your challenging mechatronic requirements.
The workshops focus on identifying your potential based on current and future desired working methods, the targeted development of an overall solution and its comprehensible presentation.
Your Software Solution for a Consistent Configuration Process
CIDEON Conify consistently links data from the sales and engineering phases to automatically provide PDM-compliant MCAD and ECAD data of the configured product. This is the basis for the subsequent Engineering-to-Order and generation of ERP-specific bill of materials, work schedules, wiring diagrams and production processes according to customer requirements, enabling the creation of individual products quickly and according to specifications.
- Automation of daily tasks in the processing of configurable products
- Consistent data quality
- Ensure consistent standards for all process participants
- Merging into one mechatronic BOM
CIDEON Conify is the ideal combination of CONnection and CONfiguration!
