Here at xLM Solutions, we receive many requests on how best to reduce rework and “push” the product structure from SOLIDWORKS into ERP, MRP and MES systems. In response, we developed a SOLIDWORKS PDM to DELMIAWorks Integration tool.
For SOLIDWORKS customers, odds are that you are using SOLIDWORKS PDM to manage your CAD/SOLIDWORS file and your Bill of Materials (BOM). We have developed a tool to integrate SOLIDWORKS PDM with DELMIAWorks, automating the creation of Bills of Manufacturing from the SOLIDWORKS Bill of Material data. The data transfer can be done manually through one right-click operation or automated through a workflow state change.
Transfer data by a user action (manual through the right-click menu)
Transfer data per Change state (automated method)
Push a derived format (eDrawing, PDF, etc.) and connect it to the DELMIAWorks BOM object through the Documents Tab
Create configurable field mappings, default values and field formatting
The integration can be tailored to handle unique customer requirements
DELMIA Works Components
DBLoad is required for the import of the Bill of Manufacturing
IQAlerts is suggested to be used to automate DBLoad
