BOM Templates (For SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional only)

Your administrator can create custom column layouts using BOM templates.

There are templates for computed BOMS, weldment BOMs, and weldment cut lists. Each BOM template your administrator creates can have different data card variables displayed in the BOM columns.

For example, a BOM for engineers or designers might have the following columns:

  • Part Number
  • Quantity
  • Description
  • Material

A BOM for purchasing managers might have the following columns:

  • Vendor
  • Cost
  • Material
  • Part Name
  • Part Number
  • Quantity
  • Unit of Measure

SOLIDWORKS PDM administrators can use the SOLIDWORKS PDM workflow to set up the export of one or more types of BOMs to an XML format for use with other ERP systems.
