Reliable access to accurate, well-organized data is essential for bringing new products to market quickly and efficiently, but working at the speed of design can be complex for global teams who work with massive amounts of data from different engineering disciplines. To stay ahead of the curve, companies need efficient processes, seamless integrations and robust data management tools that enable a digital thread across their organization.

OpenBOM, a cloud-native PLM and PDM solution, has emerged as a game-changer for engineers, manufacturers, and industrial companies. At xLM Solutions,c as an OpenBOM certified consulting partner, we are committed to helping our clients harness the full potential of this innovative platform.

Implementation, Launch, and Integration

Implementing a bill of materials (BOM) management solution can be a complex endeavor. xLM Solutions specializes in simplifying this process. We provide expert assistance in setting up and launching OpenBOM, ensuring a smooth transition for your organization. 

Integration with CAD systems, such as SOLIDWORKS, and other critical systems is another area where we excel. Seamlessly connecting OpenBOM with your existing tools enables a unified source of truth across your organization, and the possibilities are endless. If you’re interested in learning more about OpenBOM, I highly recommend getting in touch with our team and exploring some of OpenBOM’s blog posts and live demos, including:

Customization Beyond Out-of-the-Box Features

One of our favorite things about OpenBOM is that it features built-in plugins for SOLIDWORKS, Oracle NetSuite, Fusion 360, Quickbooks and many other solutions. You can add CAD integrations and begin sending files to OpenBOM in as little as a few minutes.

That said, every business has unique requirements and, although OpenBOM’s out-of-the-box features are extremely powerful, customization is often necessary to meet specific needs. As a full-service PLM and PDM consultant, xLM specializes in tailoring solutions that go beyond standard features. We help integrate OpenBOM with other business software like enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, costing, eCommerce, and more, making sure the platform aligns perfectly with your business processes.

Our team specializes in customizing software solutions via REST API and user-defined commands. We’re available to create custom OpenBOM commands for tasks such as data export and other specific requirements. We have also developed some of our own solutions and videos to optimize your user experience. 

How to Use OpenBOM’s New Command Feature: In this video, I discuss how to use the new command feature within OpenBOM. The feature enables user-clickable commands to perform various operations, including integrating OpenBOM data with other systems, generating custom reports and more.
