Material Takeoff / Bill Of Materials
MatriX includes powerful Material Take-Off facilities that provide detailed and consolidated Bills of Materials for multi-discipline projects of any size or complexity. MatriX also caters for MTOs at different levels to satisfy different requirements e.g. bulk and detailed, and the piping module provides MTOs by spool and isometric.
Detailed material information can be entered manually from drawings or imported electronically from CAD systems. Both methods provide fast, accurate data entry and comprehensive, unambiguous material descriptions in a consistent format. Take-Off line items can be automatically matched with a parts catalogue, and options are provided to automatically generate or manually create new part numbers. These facilities eliminate manual errors, duplication and inconsistency when identifying part numbers.
MatriX also assists with material requisitioning. Take-off line items can be consolidated by part number and requisitions generated that can then be transferred to procurement systems for pricing and / or purchase.
