Cyco Software Reduces Time to Market for Manufacturers With Affordable Bill Of Materials (BOM) Module

RIJSWIJK, The Netherlands, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Cyco Software, a leading global software company offering Engineering Data Management (EDM) solutions, today announced the availability of the Cyco AutoManager(R) BOM Module, a powerful and easy to use add-on to the market-leading Cyco AutoManager(R) Meridian. The Cyco AutoManager BOM Module reduces errors in the Bill Of Material creation process and distribution, cuts design time and boosts inter- departmental collaboration -- enabling small to medium sized manufacturing companies to achieve faster time-to-market. The Cyco AutoManager BOM Module distinguishes itself for its ease of implementation, affordable pricing, seamless integration with other corporate enterprise systems and support for a variety of CAD systems.

"The Cyco AutoManager BOM Module will help our design group to work much faster," said Steve McClure, Document Control Administrator at Advantage R&D, a Houston, Texas-based firm specializing in innovative drilling technology. "We will cut down tremendously on re-keying existing information and completely eliminate having to manually update the BOMs for the use of the company's other departments. We expect to meet production deadlines days ahead of schedule over the next three months by taking a lot of inefficiencies out of the process."

Managing the Bill of Materials

Manufacturing projects typically involve complex or challenging sales, engineering, purchasing and production requirements. For project-oriented Engineer to Order (ETO) companies and small to medium sized discrete manufacturing (ATO) companies, effectively managing the list of all components needed to make a final product is crucial. Often, many multi-disciplinary teams (mechanical, electrical) are involved and in the case of ETO companies, the BOM is different for each individual customer.

The Cyco AutoManager BOM Module architecture enables manufacturers to accommodate an ever-changing bill of materials, enforce standards, collaborate with other departments, customers and suppliers, and integrate with existing CAD and ERP systems. This results in improved margins, increased efficiencies and competitiveness, while meeting stringent customer demands.

"Customers have been demanding a cost-effective BOM module that is CAD independent, works with existing ERP software, project management and other systems, and bridges the gap between engineering and logistics," said Eric Bouwer, Cyco Software CEO. "Our total EDM system acts as an automated liaison between design, sales, R&D and procurement -- dramatically enabling companies to more quickly develop products and penetrate new markets."

Enterprise Wide Benefits

The Cyco AutoManager BOM Module's unparalleled out-of-the-box functionality and easy-to-use, intuitive interface offers many advantages enterprise wide including the ability to:

  *  Maximize the re-use of parts and sub-assemblies used in previous
     customer projects while avoiding redundant design efforts
  *  Present essential information of a design automatically, accurately and
     instantly for later maintenance and service of delivered products
  *  Automatically update the Bill of Materials in engineering and make it
     available in other departments such as production, purchasing and
  *  Provide seamless integration with 2D and 3D CAD packages such as
     Autodesk(R) Mechanical Desktop, Autodesk(R) Inventor and SolidWorks(R)
  *  Extend full enterprise strength, connecting to multiple ERP and other
     applications such as MS Excel
  *  Simple, out-of-the-box deployment with a low user learning curve
