Compare, create, and update BOMs between CAD and ERP systems.

About CADLink

CADLink uses a real-time, bidirectional link to pull and push information from your CAD model and ERP system. This takes data directly from the on screen drawing or model and integrates it with your ERP system.

Within CADLink, your business can draw comparisons and make changes to two different data sets in one interface–eliminating the need for multiple data entries. The software creates parts modeled in your item master, highlights discrepancies between data sets, and synchornizes your CAD and ERP bill of materials in a controlled manner.

  • Item Master Management: Contains important tombstone data such as part number, type, description, etc. The application will pull the information that exists in your ERP system and the model to populate the fields of the form. The designer will be able to modify the data on the interface form.
  • Bill of Material Management: Bill of material information is taken directly from the assembly model or drawing to populate the fields of the CAD ERP Interface form.The engineer will not be able to add or modify bill of material information without modifying the BOM in your CAD system. Thus in order to add a part, delete a part or change the quantity on the bill of material, that part must be added, deleted or have its quantity changed in SolidWorks first and then saved through the interface.This helps to ensure data integrity between the your CAD system and the ERP system.
  • Routing Management: CAD ERP Interface optionally provides a simple, convenient interface for adding and modifying ERP routing information. The routing information is pulled from ERP and the designer can make the necessary changes in the interface.
  • Effectivity Dates: The CAD ERP Interface system can include effectivity date information with the BOM. Using this option, companies can be sure to keep a clear history as well as a future instruction to production on the status of engineering bills of materials.
