Within BOM Compare, once you have ingested a Bill of Materials into the LevaData Platform, you are able to automatically pull in LevaData information. Benchmarks, Lead Times, and other important part analysis data can be automatically populated directly into your bill of materials.
Production Parts Autofill
View and Check Out
While viewing an Existing BOM in BOM Management, Check Out the BOM to begin working on the data:
When Checked Out, the line item part data values can be edited (editable values indicated in grey), or much more conveniently the values can be automatically filled with production values via Production Parts Autofill:
Parts and Sourcing Information Autofill
After selecting the reference quarter (usually the same one the BOM was made in), the autofill will run and when it is complete it will show you the reference quarter you chose as well as a list of parts that data has been presented for:
Scrolling down below the Part Change Summary table, you can see the results of the Autofill operation in a set of comparative tables.
You can see the (1) Before Autofill on the left and the (2) After Autofill on the right. You can (1) select all CPNs in the primary checkbox under "Before Autofill" and accept all changes or you can (3) review part comparisons individually and accept the autofill changes only for specific CPNs by clicking their respective rows. The latter you may want to do if within your BOM you have uploaded very recent pricing data that you have negotiated, and you do not want any of our pricing data sources to override those price points.
After you have either (1) selected all data for autofill or selected specific parts for data autofill, then you can proceed to (2) Save which will conduct the production parts autofill operation. This will save all populated benchmarks, information values, years to end of life, and other valuable information into the part line items of your bill of materials.
View and Check In
Within your BOM now, you can view part item data such as 90th percentile Benchmark, Average Benchmark, and eBenchmark MPN+FFF Benchmark. After you are done reviewing the autofilled data, you can Check In the BOM to finalize the writing of this data to your BOM.
A toast notification will indicate that the Revision has been checked in successfully and you can review your BOM in the BOM Management interface after it has been enriched with this part data auto-filled:
