Quebec, Canada, October 28, 2004 – IRISCO, the leader in extraction and processing of PDM metadata, just announced that its Elmo BoM 2005 CAD-to-MRP/ERP exchange application has successfully passed Autodesk Certification for Autodesk Inventor R9. Autodesk works with selected third-party developers to help deliver complete manufacturing solutions. IRISCO is committed to developing products that adhere to the Autodesk Inventor Certification Program, ensuring that customers are utilizing the best working combination of products to meet their needs. Autodesk has certified that Elmo BoM 2005 has demonstrated the highest level of interoperability with Autodesk Inventor. For additional information, please call IRISCO at 866-522-3207, ext. 211. This unique software solution ships in two languages (English and French)., and is available as a trial version for download directly from the Elmo Website at http://en.irisco.com/solutions/?productid=54#description. Elmo BoM 2005 not only addresses the needs of Autodesk users, but also those of all their colleagues, particularly those who work along the production process. Elmo BoM 2005 allows extracting and exporting, in just one single operation, of the exact composition of all the Inventor assemblies, subassemblies and parts, and all of the properties ("iProperties") of each part, including custom, user-defined properties. It can also harvest all of the blocks, with and without attributes, found in DWG documents, as well as AutoCAD Mechanical and Mechanical Desktop Bills of Materials. Prior creation of Parts Lists or BoMs is not required to obtain the BoM (Bills Of Materials), which takes the form of a single XML or Tab-delimited file which can then be imported or attached in third-party applications (such as Excel, Access, etc.), or directly brought into a MRP/ERP system. One can thus be assured of perfect synchronization between shared data such as engineering, production, costing, etc.. The IRISCO R+D team developed Elmo to make data available in a timely fashion throughout the entire Product Lifecycle.
IRISCO's President and Science Officer, Ricardo Talbot, said about the latest release of Elmo BoM: "We are pleased - and very proud - that Elmo BoM has passed Inventor R9 certification with flying colors, without any modification whatsoever. That says a lot about IRISCO's most stringent quality assurance philosophy. We believe our enhanced solution will help CAD customers obtain the best possible return on their huge past investment in the creation and maintenance of their digital design data and metadata by making these priceless assets available to all departments of a company (production, sales, marketing, costing, service, etc.). Elmo BoM 2005 represents the latest of a rich collection of tools which will allow to dig for these hidden treasures."
