Benefits and Description
The new BOM compare report reduces the difficult and time consuming task of ensuring that all parts in an engineering bill of materials (eBOM) are in the manufacturing bill of materials (mBOM). The new BOM compare report allows the manufacturing engineer to quickly identify quantity discrepancies between BOMs, and ensure that all parts are accounted for.
The BOM compare report:
- Allows the manufacturing engineer to compare two or more structures at the same time and supports multi-level comparisons.
- Performs a part quantity comparison analysis using the associativity links introduced with Windchill MPMLink 9.0.
- Supports interactions with other MPMLink explorers, so that you can, for example, use the report to highlight parts in ProductView for MPMLink or in the Process Plan Explorer.
- Displays quantity comparison results in a color coded table, which can be easily navigated by discrepancy type (equal to, greater than, less than).
