A comprehensive base for a complete, easy-to-use manufacturing solution

The key to a successful manufacturing software implementation begins with the Bill of Materials. A Bill of Materials (BOM) defines the product structure in terms of materials and provides an optional connection to plant resources such as machinery, tooling, and labor defined by a bill of routing. The Bill of Materials application provides a solid base for production activity to be defined, tracked and reviewed. It also enables more advanced software such as MRP and CRP to be properly utilized. TRAVERSE Manufacturing Bill of Materials is the place to start.

The software functionality provided gives you the tools you’ll need to define both the simplest and most complex bills of material. Designed to allow you to start simple and build from there, the maintenance of the bills of material provides advanced features such as detailed routing, multiple routing definition, mixed unit of measure, cross group costing, scrap tracking, and total visual documentation.

Revision numbers, effective dates, and drawing numbers help to further define the BOM. You’ll find that the sophisticated feature set built into this product is comparable to software that is priced substantially higher, yet, you can set up simple, material-only bills quickly and with minimal work.

Features like a text file import enable you to bring engineering bills directly into your current BOM database. Standard cost maintenance, global component replacement, BOM change history, and a variety of inquiry functions give you automated update abilities and quick access to vital information.
