PLMSync runs from your PDM/PLM system, enabling direct synchronization of Bill of Materials (BOM) data from PDM/PLM systems to ERP systems.


PLMSync establishes a dynamic, bi-directional connection for seamless information exchange between your PDM/PLM system and your ERP system. With PLMSync, you can effortlessly compare and modify two distinct datasets within a unified interface, eliminating redundant data entries and the risk of human typing errors. It streamlines the engineering process by automatically generating parts in your item master, highlighting discrepancies between datasets, and synchronizing your PDM/PLM and ERP Bill of Materials in an organized and controlled way.

Product Functionality

The PLMSync Interface system empowers engineers with the ability to seamlessly add, modify, and view ERP engineering information, including item master data, bill of material, routing data, and effectivity dates.

As a unified application, the PDM/PLM-ERP Interface system performs the following key functions:

Item Master Management

The Item Master holds crucial data like part numbers and descriptions. PLM Sync will compare Item Master data from both your ERP system and the PDM/PLM. Engineers can make modifications from within the PLM Sync application, and select ‘Save’ to synchronize and update data in both the ERP and PDM/PLM systems.

Any new item master records that currently don’t exist in your ERP will be created through the PLMSync save process.

Bill of Material Management

Bill of material information from PDM/PLM and your ERP are extracted and compared to populate the PLMSync interface. Engineers are restricted from adding or modifying BOM information directly; any changes, additions, or deletions must be performed in the PDM/PLM system first. This sequential process ensures data integrity between the PDM/PLM and the ERP system.

Upon selecting ‘Save,’ the ERP is updated with the model information, incorporating changes in quantity, part number, and more. This approach guarantees accuracy and consistency in the synchronized data sets.

Routing Management

The PDM/PLM-ERP Interface offers a user-friendly platform for adding and modifying ERP routing/operation  information. This interface allows engineers to define manufacturing routing and operation steps seamlessly without needing to enter the ERP system.

Upon selecting ‘Save,’ the ERP system is promptly updated with any routing changes made by the engineers. This streamlined process ensures efficiency and accuracy in managing routing information.

Effectivity Dates

The PDM/PLM-ERP Interface system can incorporate effectivity date information within the BOM. This feature enables companies to maintain a transparent history and provides future instructions to production regarding the status of engineering bills of materials.

With PDM/PLM-ERP and Effectivity Dates, CAD BOMs are never deleted; instead, they are strategically ‘zeroed’ using appropriate effective dates and quantities. This approach ensures a comprehensive and controlled management of BOM history and future changes.


Eliminate ERP Clerical Work

PLMSync empowers your engineering team to concentrate on their core strengths—engineering. By eliminating double and triple data entries, engineering information seamlessly enters both your PDM/PLM system and ERP system through a unified interface. Creating new items in the item master is effortlessly streamlined as PLMSync extracts data from the PDM/PLM system and pushes it to the ERP system.

Free up your engineering staff to focus on impactful engineering work and reduce overall engineering costs. Minimizing the time spent on manual data input across multiple platforms allows them to invest more time in projects and designs. PLMSync enhances efficiency and productivity, letting your team thrive in their primary expertise.

Reduce Data Entry Errors

When manually entering data into two distinct databases, the likelihood of discrepancies increases, often arising from typos or mistakes, especially when Engineers are required to fill numerous fields for each assembly, subassembly, and part. PLMSync addresses this challenge by unifying the data entry process, effectively eliminating sources of error in transferring data between your PDM/PLM and ERP system.

This unified approach not only enhances accuracy but also presents a significant cost-saving opportunity. A single mistake in the Bill of Materials can potentially lead to ordering errors, resulting in scrap, excess inventory, or delayed shipment of parts. PLMSync eliminates these risks, ensuring a streamlined and error-free data transfer process with consequential benefits for overall operational efficiency and cost management.

Drawing Accuracy and Consistency

The PLMSync Interface guarantees that the details on the drawing, descriptions, and revisions match exactly with the information in your ERP ensuring accuracy in drawings minimizes confusion and decreases errors on the shop floor caused by conflicting information between work orders, sales orders, and drawings. This alignment greatly reduces waste and saves on engineering costs by cutting down the need for clarification. The outcome is a smoother and less error-prone manufacturing process.
