Remember a few weeks back we talked about Looking at BOMs a Different Way? Now there’s a new feature that works well with our customizable BOM views. With last weekend’s release of PLM 360, you can now export only the BOM data you need by selecting a BOM view.
Here’s the BOM tab using the ‘Feature Friday’ BOM view we set up before:
Now when we export to Excel, it just shows those columns.
This allows you to work in Excel much easily – you get to target exactly the data you need. And as we mentioned in this week’s Tip Tuesday, the top row (0.0) shows the top level item.
Next week we’ll cover how to reimport BOM data using the same exported Excel file – fun stuff!
