Application Overview / Market Segment Introduction:
BOMtoExcel is an embedded tool inside Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) for converting BOM content into Microsoft Excel file. This converts the meta-data in an assembly into .xls file. Occasionally data is needed in Microsoft Excel from PTC Creo (Pro/ENGINEER), especially when it comes to BOM table contents. Data from any of these data sources can be sent directly to Excel with/without writing any external CSV files and running any office applications. Often, we require BOM generated from PTC Creo Parametric in .xls format to share it across different departments in a manufacturing industry or to upload in ERP/MRP systems.
Current Scenario (Without Application):
User need to Manually:
Actual practices in all companies they will get the BOM in drawing and they will create as a report in Excel by Manually.
More time consuming to create the report (Maximum~1day).
Human error due to manual entry
Positive Business Outcome:
ROI – quick Return on Investment (ROI) considering the significant time savings and reduced ECN’s
- Speed – One click solution to propagate necessary details from Engineering to other departments.
- Enhanced User Productivity – Eliminate Designer/Creo User’s non-productive (manual entries) activities, saving up to 90% time.
Simplify ERP/PLM tasks:BOM no longer has to be manually transferred from CAD to XLS.
Quality output:BOM no longer has to be manually transferred from CAD to XLS.
- Error Free – Eliminates errors that can be otherwise caused by multiple interfaces including typos, read errors, comparison errors, etc.
How it adds value:
Works with PTC Creo (Pro/ ENGINEER) Base (Foundation) Licenses
One-click solution that automatically determines and documents BOM content from Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) assembly model
Works in conjunction with PTC Windchill/ PDMLink or Intralink
Recognizes level of parts in multi-level assembly models
Assigns assembly level in the respective column of the excel file
Customized spreadsheet (Excel) output as per requirement or company standard along with required parameter / attribute information
