Fast Extraction of Product Metadata From Plm Documents

By: Thomas Cutler

The wizards of Elmo Solutions have developed an application software that will attract not only AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD Electrical, AutoCAD Mechanical and Mechanical Desktop users, but also their coworkers, especially those who work in MRP and ERP.


Elmo BoM's numerous benefits include:

&bullBill of Materials can be automatically updated by using Elmo BoM in batch mode periodically

&bullFast and efficient extraction of metadata (non-graphic data) from CAD documents

&bullAll metadata is extracted in one single operation



According to Ricardo Talbot, Chief Science Officer with Elmo Solutions, "Elmo BoM is the only of its kind that allows the extraction and export, in one single unattended operation, of the exact composition of each single Autodesk block, assembly or sub-assembly, but also of the contents of all the attributes and "iProperties" contained in each component, including User-Defined properties. Although batch-export of Mechanical Desktop and AutoCAD Mechanical Bill of Materials (BOMs) is supported, Predefined Parts Lists are not required to allow extraction and export of BOMs, which are presented by Elmo BoM as a single file that can be in turn read by other applications such as Excel, Access, or directly imported into ERP / MRP applications, thus ensuring the desired synchronization of data produced by all processes: engineering, production, and costing."
