FileMaker (FM) Database Web Application for Parts Catalog and Bill of Materials

A leader in the technology sector and ELYON have joined forces to create a robust application with web-based user-interface that streamlines parts management and enhances the bill of materials (BOM) process. Leveraging the power of FileMaker Pro, we are building and enhancing a dynamic solution that caters to the following key requirements:

  1. Parts Catalog Management:
    • The web application will serve as a comprehensive catalog, allowing users to search, view, and organize various parts.
    • Each part will have detailed information, including specifications, pricing, availability, and related documentation.
  2. Bill of Materials (BOM):
    • The BOM functionality will enable users to assemble components into a cohesive whole.
    • Users can create, edit, and manage BOMs, ensuring accurate product assembly and efficient production processes.
  3. Version Control and Revisions:
    • The database will track part revisions, ensuring that the most up-to-date information is always available.
    • Users can view historical changes, compare versions, and make informed decisions.
  4. Collaboration and Permissions:
    • Multiple users, including engineers, procurement teams, and project managers, will collaborate seamlessly.
    • Role-based permissions will control access to sensitive data, maintaining security and data integrity.

Why FileMaker Pro?

  • User-Friendly Interface: FileMaker Pro offers an intuitive interface for designing and interacting with the database. Users can easily navigate, search, and update part information.
  • Customization: ELYON is tailoring the solution to meet our partner’s specific needs. Custom layouts, scripts, and calculations ensure a personalized experience.
  • Cross-Platform Compatibility: Whether accessed via desktop or mobile devices, the web application remains consistent and functional.

Benefits and Future Prospects

This collaboration with ELYON promises the following benefits:

  • Efficiency: Streamlined parts management accelerates decision-making and reduces manual effort.
  • Accuracy: Accurate BOMs lead to precise product assembly and fewer errors.
  • Scalability: As our partner grows, the database can expand to accommodate additional parts and features.
