Why is it important to automate your bill of materials?

Large manufacturer workers spend a lot of time creating configuration manuals manually. This causes time-pressure and delays in project schedules. We offer an RPA solution that fully automates this process. Our solution significantly reduces throughput times and the number of errors. With PLM software, management and maintenance of product lines, documentation and workflows is simplified. Integration with any CAD, PLM or ERP application can be done seamlessly, establishing an intelligent workflow. This gives you better insights to make smarter decisions with intelligent predictors at your side. Also, such software can help you validate the labelling and release of all products.

The Benefits of an automation to create Bills of Material

How do we help our clients to create a Bill of Material automatically?

Enhance Productivity

Releasing employees of repetitive tasks will allow them to refocus on valuable items such as product roadmap, make more strategic decisions.

Better Insights

RPA and AI can compile and maintain all data at no cost. There is no need to provide clients with `rough estimates` of their support costs next year. Just let an RPA solution crunch the final sales quote right away. Or always make sure your engineer has synchronised his/her latest release with ERP, PLM and CRM.

Improve Support Quality

Automation monitors your inventory in real-time and keeps BOM up-to-date, leaving zero errors and a significant cut in operating cost due to errors.

How does automated Bill of Materials (BOM) creation work?

Process Mapping

Production planners have to create and prepare special order manuals by hand and save the files into a product folder which contains a Bill of Material, various certificates, and technical drawings.

Setup Rules and Triggers

By teaching the AI based on pre-set rules where and when and how to put these folders together, the Bill of Material can be crafted automatically and also be changed if changes are occurring.

Assembly of Documents

With RPA programming, different programs such as Oracle, Excel and SAP can work together to create, edit or distribute the bill of material among other operations and files.

Automating the assembly of Order Folders in a large manufacturing firm

With this solution, clients reduced their error by 90% and saved 1892 hours annually. This solution guaranteed 4 months to ROI.

See Case Study

With our solutions, the robot performs the following tasks to automate the assembly of order folders:

  • Receive multiple Excel files with data of each order number
  • Find correct order in SAP by filling in data from Excel sheets
  • Print order sheet, bill of material and nameplate of the machine (all in PDF)
  • Extract drawing number from the order sheet
  • Use this number to find drawings of the machine in Agile PLM
  • Print blueprint of the machine (PDF)
  • Combine all printed files into one final order manual
  • Output order manual on a shared drive
