Let us show you what a modern configurator and CPQ software can do for your business!
The structure module adds product configuration to COMBINUM with generation of bill of materials for work order planning, stock picking and assembly of the product.
Rule driven bill of materials
All parts of the bill of materials can be controlled by rules:
- Which items to include
- Addition and subtraction to the default quantity
- Calculated quantities
- Calculated properties like width and height of sheet metals
- How deep the item tree shall be traversed
From multi-level to single-level
Generated multi-level bill of materials can be transformed to single-level bill of materials by calculating the amount of each leaf item. Whether or not to summarize multiple instances of the same leaf item (that share the same structure properties) is controlled by a setting.
COMBINUM Structure can even compose a grand total bill of materials from the bill of materials of each configuration in a configured system.
Presentation or integration
Depending on the type of product and the processes of the company, bill of materials could either be relevant to customers and sales managers or it could be something that is solely handled behind the scenes and sent to the ERP system by integration.
Bill of materials can be presented both in the configurator interface and in the interface for viewing stored configurations.
Users can manually add extra items that are not affected by reconfiguration of the bill of materials.
