CAD Connector

The CAD Connector application was created for manufacturing companies that plan production on the basis of data transferred from construction and technological teams in the form of a list of materials (BOM). The main task of the CAD Connector application is to integrate any CAD / PDM / PLM environment with the ERP system - Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. The application allows you to process the imported product structure (construction BOM), what's more - it automates standard tasks, preparing data for production.

CAD/ERP integration for efficient production planning

The increasing complexity of manufactured products is associated with many problems at the stage of the production preparation process. Before the machine, often consisting of hundreds or thousands of components, reaches the production departments, it must first be processed from the flat structure of the bill of materials from the CAD system to the so-called production BOM. This task can be very laborious.

Considering the time that the planner would spend manually transferring the structure to the system, the cost of starting production and the number of errors made may simply be high, which in turn translates into the price of the finished product. We have designed a tool that will collect and process the entire structure of the product, creating inventory and production BOMs, ready to be ordered for production, especially for companies that face the above problem every day.

Advantages of CAD Connector

Data consistency

Thanks to the integration via modern REST API, the product structure is automatically sent to the ERP.

Time saving

The time needed to prepare a full product structure for material procurement and production can be reduced by up to 100%.

No errors

We have reduced the number of errors related to the manual introduction of the structure to the ERP system to zero.

Data validation

Already at the stage of sending the structure to the ERP, the correctness of the sent structure can be automatically validated, thanks to which the constructor can immediately obtain information about its correctness.

Error handling

Errors at the design stage will always appear. Our solution, as part of the advanced configuration of cases, is able to verify the correctness of the sent structure at the input.


You no longer need to create new inventory or picking BOMs and finally production BOMs in the ERP system manually. CAD Connector can create them automatically.


Each field in the import is configurable, thanks to which we can get full freedom in the business logic of data processing.


Each version modification or revision of the structure is entered into the ERP system as a new version, thanks to which the planner has access to the full design history of the product.

Selected program functions


Access to the construction BOM structure (clear structure in the form of a tree)


Validation of data correctness and completeness.


...and automating the data completion process.

Stock indexes

Automatic creation of stock indexes for assemblies and details and/or production BOMs.

Central management

Management of all technological documentation (BOM and route) from one place.


Documentation version control based on engineering BOM revisions

Up-to-date documentation

Update of technological documentation in case of structural changes


Full integration with the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central environment.
