A wide range of tools lets users create, edit, view, and manage BOMs for improved communication and collaboration among engineering, manufacturing, quality assurance, and purchasing. For example, suppliers working on, say, an assembly can customize BOMs, route them for approvals, and let reviewers edit them, without installing SolidWorks. The software supports Czech, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish, Japanese, Swedish, Korean, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, and simplified as well as traditional Chinese.
