- for SOLIDWORKS
When CAD and ERP users work independently in detached systems - Errors will occur - because of unsynchronized data between Engineering and Operations. Due to human error, it is likely that inaccurate and redundant data will be used within the system, leading to costly errors, collaboration complications, valuable time spend double-checking data and fixing-errors. Even if data inconsistencies between CAD and ERP are discovered in time, users will still need to allocate some of their valuable time to double-checking data and fixing such errors.
What makes CAD/ERP LINK Unique?
- One solution for everyone (D365fO) Engineering & Operations
- Easy access to data for/from Engineering and Operations
- Dynamics 365 for Operations & AX based platform
- Embedded in SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD
- Seamless and bidirectional transfer of CAD & ERP data
This bi-directional exchange of information rids the organization of redundant data entry and fragmented data, while simultaneously strengthening data integrity. Integrating the design department with the rest of the organization improves collaboration, increases productivity, and accelerates the design to manufacturing process.
Key Customer Benefits
Easy access to ERP data
CAD users gets directly access to the ERP data from the CAD system. CAD-users has access to related information on the item. Allowing everybody to work in the same system.
Eliminate redundant data entry
CAD/ERP LINK unifies the data across CAD & ERP systems. Then manual data entry is ceased and redundant data between CAD and ERP is thereby eliminated.
Reduce errors & save time
Changes to product data are updated automatically by CAD/ERP LINK. By eliminates the need for manual data handling, errors are significantly reduced.
Optimize engineering productivity
By minimizing the time spent on clerical tasks, such as manually transfer product data to other teams, the engineering team can spend time where it is most valuable: executing projects and perfecting designs.
Quick and easy installation
CAD/ERP LINK is ready with a quick and easy installation. Short and to-the point training sessions.
Key Customer Features
Auto-exchange of Items, Properties, & BOMs
CAD/ERP LINK’s unique functionality allows for the automatic exchange data of Items, Properties, and BOMs, between CAD and ERP.
Auto-creation of new ERP Items
CAD/ERP LINK automatically creates a new ERP Item when CAD data is transferred to the ERP system.
ERP based item numbering
CAD/ERP LINK follows the item numbering from the ERP system by default.
PDF Conversion of CAD Drawings
Generates automatic PDFs by check in, ensuring that drawings are available in the ERP system.
Export PDF Drawings to ERP
PDFs exports automatically together with the Item and BOMs when CAD to ERP data transfer takes place. The PDFs are linked to the Item in ERP.
Automatic titleblock population & maintenance
CAD/ERP LINK updates properties related to new data, which controls the titleblock fields.
