Razorleaf Corporation has launched of Clover CollectIT, a web-based file management application that allows users to extract, package, and securely distribute any type of PLM file and data across any organisation.
A PLM consulting and systems integrator, Razorleaf has designed CollectIT as a vendor-neutral software that can act as a communications hub for exchanging PLM data and processes between applications and across systems, vendors, or domains.
CollectIT offers users the ability to select and share part and Bill of Materials (BOM) representations, 2D drawings, 3D CAD files, and other technical documents associated with the creation of a project, product, or part.
The software extracts and consolidates files and data stored in PLM into user-readable file packages that can be shared with employees, suppliers, and clients, ensuring access to accurate and current information to support a Digital Thread foundation in a Model Based Enterprise (MBE).
“Razorleaf developed CollectIT to help manufacturing organisations eliminate the inefficiencies of traditional manual methods of extracting and distributing files and data, so non-PLM users can have access to the most current information internally and across the extended enterprise,” said Razorleaf CEO Eric Doubell.
“Some of our early studies showed the software can reduce the time spent compiling TDP outputs by days or weeks.
“CollectIT helps clients get to market faster while reducing costs and improving productivity. Razorleaf continues to develop innovative products that increase ROI and deliver a real competitive advantage.”
Razorleaf says that CollectIT is capable of navigating through the full BOM hierarchy, including related items, to automate the manual extraction process for creating Bid Packages, Product Specifications, End Item Data Packages (EIDPs), and TDPs. The MIL-STD-31000B template is provided to support Government and MBE standards.
