We just released Advantage BOM to help customers quickly generate global BOMs for estimation and quoting when bidding on projects.
If a customer has a 3D model for a new plant or a revamp, they can easily extract PCF or IDF data files which contain valuable information on the material needed for the project. By passing these files to pipe fabricators interested in the project, it allows them to come up with accurate estimate on material costs.
So how is that helpful? Well, it makes their quotes more reflective of the true cost of the material in said project to ensure fabrication costs stay on budget.
