How long does it typically take to manually build a BoM using OptiBoM™?
Add Energy’s norms dictate that 5 BoMs (with 20 spare parts) can be built per day per person. The project timeline can be significantly shortened using a larger team depending on the client requirements. 
Why should OptiBoM™ be used for manual part sourcing?
UAlthough a specific model of an equipment may not be identified within OptiBoM™, there is a high possibility that due to interchangeability of spares across various equipment, the spare parts required are in OptiBoM™. This will allow for efficiencies to be gained through the potential of the BoM being created automatically, and then assigned to the equipment when it has been loaded into OptiBoM™.
Which CMMS’s are compatible with OptiBoM™?
Any CMMS is compatible with OptiBoM™. Bespoke CMMS upload templates are created for each project and are customized to suit the requirements for loading the data back into the CMMS.
