BigBangBoMs – Bulk-import CAD Data into ERP Safely and Effortlessly… and Without Errors!
Although CAD-ERP data integration is, without any doubt, one of the greatest ideas since sliced bread, it is not always achieved without significant effort. Specifically, the initial capture of product data (namely Items, Bills of Materials and Routings) can prove a quite tedious and error-prone task.
That is why Elmo Solutions has developed the BigBangBoMs Program, targeted specifically at customers who are facing the task of implementing an ERP system, which includes the initialization of data tables, in many cases using the legacy data readily available from CAD documents.
Of course, the progressive approach, which consists in creating product data objects one at a time, has its merits. However, it was found that in most situations, there is a superior approach, the “Big Bang” approach, in which all of the legacy product data that needs to be integrated with the ERP system is created prior to the Go-live, thus ensuring a far superior ROI, and a much better user experience overall.
Adopting a new ERP-CAD data integration or data management solution can have a significant impact on your business processes. The Jumpstart Programs will help you smoothen that transition.
