Updating BOM

Question asked by Scott Wemhoff on May 4, 2009

We currently manufacture several product lines and use some of the same parts in each product. We are using Excel to maintain our BOM's and have to manually edit for revision change. Our problems arise when we modify a part for one product and fail to make the revision change the BOM for another product.

We have looked into PLM/BOM software such as Arena and Enovia but are having trouble justifying the cost of these services when all we really need is a way to keep our BOM current. Is it possible to use a macro to tie the cells in our BOM to the properties of the part? Perhaps there is a better solution?

I appreciate any response.
