Are you looking to learn more about SOLIDWORKS Manage BOM tools? The SOLIDWORKS Manage tool shows you the Bill of Material (BOM) and what parts are in your assembly. While there is some great information for you in PDM, SOLIDWORKS Manage has more to offer that will make your workday easier.

In this SOLIDWORKS Manage BOM webinar, you will learn:

TriMech Application Engineer, Patricia Bar, will highlight the differences between assemblies. Patricia will demonstrate how SOLIDWORKS Manage allows you to easily see those differences in versions, countries, and part numbers and even color codes the results to help the viewer easily spot the variations.
