San Clemente – CircuitByte will present the latest version of BOM Connector at this year’s Apex in San Diego

from February 14-16 on its joint booth with Mentor Graphics.

BOM ConnectorTM is a multi-purpose BOM tool for electronic manufacturers, which covers the entire spectrum of tasks – from initial BOM import, to “scrubbing”, link to ERP for component searches, as well as cost calculation to support the project quoting and parts sourcing process. Particularly popular among EMS companies, BOM ConnectorTM can read in a wide variant of BOMs of varying format and content quality, lets the user quickly verify internal and

external supply sources and perform a complete cost calculation. With a user list that includes some of the best-known EMS-companies in the business, BOM ConnectorTM has become a true “must have” tool in this highly competitive market.

The graphics shows a BOM within BOM Connector, “scrubbed” and ready for cost calculation.

BOM Connector is based on a powerful SQL backend database, and includes project management features, which include revision compare, customer management, ERP upload of completed BOMs and Calculations.

Customers report time savings of up to 75% compared with conventional Excel-based manual entry and tracking methods.

In combination with Valor Manufacturing Software Solutions from Mentor Graphics, BOM Connector forms a key part of the CircuitByte’s Industry 4.0 APEX presentation.
