NEWTON, MA, Jan 29, 2018 – OpenBOM, the first real-time collaborative bill of materials and inventory management system for engineering, manufacturing, and supply chain, integrated and able to extract Bills of Materials from CAD systems now offers its users the ability to also upload and link CAD data in a bill of materials (BOM) to Box, a leading cloud content management platform. By doing so, OpenBOM now offers CAD users a useful and secure path to the the cloud. With Box, all a team’s files are securely and centrally managed in the cloud making it easier than ever for everyone on the team to practically access cloud connected information in their Bills of Materials. Moreover, OpenBOM now serves as a useful and practical means for desktop CAD system users to cloud enable their CAD design and data. This gives them the benefits of storing and sharing 3D CAD files and auto generated neutral geometry file formats in the cloud they can share and collaborate with remote team members, contract manufacturers, and suppliers. Together with Box, OpenBOM features include:
- Ability to reference data in a BOM to Box;
- Providing CAD systems users, such as SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk Inventor, Solid Edge, etc. ability to automatically link and share items in their BOMs using Box; and
- Provide desktop CAD system users the ability collaborate across teams and organizations using advanced cloud technology.
“We are excited to extend 3rd party cloud file storage access in Bills of Materials to Box,” said Oleg Shilovitsky, CEO and cofounder, “including the ability to upload CAD and PDF data to Box connected to their bills of materials, share them amongst teams which include contractors, suppliers, and other vendors and collaborate in real-time.”
“The need for organizations to move fast and operate in a modern way is more important than ever before,” said Niall Wall, senior vice president of business development and emerging business at Box. “The manufacturing industry requires the most advanced security and enterprise-grade collaboration tools, and we’re excited to provide OpenBOM customers with the ability to connect data in their Bills of Materials to Box.”
OpenBOM was co-founded by Oleg Shilovitsky and Vic Sanchez. OpenBOM develops new cloud-based real-time collaboration and data management technology to manage BOM and related product information across networks of engineers, supply chain managers, and contract manufacturers. OpenBOM enables people to share and collaborate using online Bill of Materials from initial design through all stages of engineering, manufacturing, and supply chain.
