Giving engineers the edge they need!
The XBOM Manager module delivers advanced baseline capabilities that can be used for a variety of purposes. For example, the handling of as manufactured, as delivered and as maintained structures.
Compare and pinpoint changes over time
Branch off and maintain alternate structures
Freeze in time, create snapshots of any structure
Create alternate bill of material representations for manufacturing purposes
A snapshot of the structure as it looks at the time of creation. This function can be used to document the state of the structure at various times before it is released, e.g. for different prototype builds.
A reconfigured structure based on maintenance, different assembly orders at different plants, ad-hoc updates, etc. These structures typically will document the appearance of individual products, rather than the definition of them.
XBOM Manager provides a user interface to reconfigure the engineering build (EBOM) into a series of manufacturing builds (As built, As planned, As maintained, etc). Also included is comparing and reporting functionality, to make use of the stored information in the coming designs. The XBOM Manager is built upon the Structure Browser, and the full range of usability options from there is also available in this tool.
The underlying framework of the out-of-the-box components can be used to configure the different kinds of baseline depending on your needs. The framework is well documented and some sample baseline configurations are included with all source code and are perfect templates to start from, create your first baseline in minutes!
