The Need

The industrial companies doing tailormade solutions spend up to 40 % of their time in the drawing room to conceive and to verify the exactness of the bill of material.

The big gaps are situated beyond the simple enumeration of items of a drawing. It is at first and above all a communications problem between departments.

The process begins at the moment the sales department receives a contract, continues in the purchasing department for the special items then in the engineering room then back to purchasing and to sales / estimation to loop the loop, without considering the others potential departments.

Another major need is the treatment of links between drawings to create lists of assemblies, spare parts, instructions for transportation, etc.

The Solution

The solution consists of a core and custom modules allowing to make the link with your in-house modules. It touches 3 groups of people:

Outside of the drawing room

For those who do not have AutoCAD, a Navigator allows to browse the whole project. According to his privileges, he can compile, modify items or send messages to the various people.

Inside of the drawing room

Besides a Navigator, the draftsmen have tools allowing the full reliability of the data, either they are counted in the unit, in length or in surface as well as piece of information exchanged between drawings.

The full control

The administrator of the eBOM solution has a module to define the rights and the privileges of every individual besides defining the drawings standards.
