Automating Quarterly BOM Costing Process in Agile PLM

Did you know that you can automate the whole process of quarterly BOM costing process through SDK APIs in Agile PLM? Consider a case where, every quarter, the sourcing user needs to create a Sourcing Project, add items to the Sourcing Project, evaluate existing prices, create RFQ and submit to the Suppliers. Rather than having to do all of the above steps manually, the whole process can be automated. Product Cost Management (PCM) supports SDK APIs for the following steps to simplify the process:


  • Create Quarterly Sourcing Project

  • Add Items (including BOM/AML) from Product Collaboration

  • Lookup existing published prices or contracts - you can do sequential lookups as well

  • Create RFQ for parts that need new pricing from the Suppliers

  • Assign Suppliers - you can search for Suppliers using additional SDK APIs

  • Open RFQ to Suppliers

With the above automation, the whole process can be completed in one-click, thus saving sufficient time for the sourcing user.
