Advantages for enterprises and employees

  • Efficient interaction between development and production planning
  • Fast and safe elimination of quantity differences
  • Synchronization with other BOMs for service, spare parts and maintenance
  • Reliably evaluate deviations directly in the 3D model 

 

Support the efficient cooperation of development and production planning

The central production planning provides the globally distributed production sites with location-specific or order-specific manufacturing BOMs (mBOMs). For this reason, the efficient mapping of design changes to mBOMs plays a decisive role in the daily cooperation between product development and production and process planning. The xBOM Manager supports this interaction during the transition from development to production planning through the secure transport of BOM changes. You can also map the plant reference using cross-plant or plant-specific mBOMs.

Eliminate quantity differences quickly and reliably

The manual BOM comparison, often common practice in the ERP system, is time-consuming and involves a high risk of errors. The xBOM Manager therefore supports the secure reconciliation of bills of materials. The consolidation of difference quantities is decisive for this. The CONTACT Elements module visually highlights these differences in the product structures so that users can navigate directly to the source. The xBOM Manager supports the elimination of differences comfortably. For example, you can make structural changes to welding or pre- and final assembly assemblies using drag & drop and integrated dialogs directly in the context of the change transport.

Synchronize other structures such as service, spare parts and maintenance BOMs

The xBOM Manager also enables the comparison of engineering BOMs (eBOMs) with any other structures such as service, spare parts and maintenance BOMs. This enables you to support follow-up processes in the product life cycle that extend beyond production. You can, for example, also document specific order BOMs or construction statuses of machines in operation and lay the data foundations for supplying the digital twin − on the basis of CONTACT Elements for IoT.

Evaluate deviations directly in the 3D model

The xBOM Manager works directly with CONTACT's 3D visualization 3D Connect. The 3D preview and the visual navigation along the product structure simplify and accelerate the work. Selected components, especially those within the scope of difference analysis, are highlighted directly in the 3D model in order to reliably evaluate deviations.
