Pick Place Program to BOM verification software | 29 October, 1998

Does anyone know of any software programs that will verify a Pick & Place program to the Bill of Materials (BOM)? Verify meaning the Part # and Ref. Des. matching of the two files.

We use GCPlace to merge our BOM with X/Y file but ocasionally Ref. Des. are missing from the x/y file file and aren't caught unless we manualy verify line by line of the BOM.

Thanks!

although this probably won't help you immediately......think about changing.

We use Mitron's system. They have a module entitled "CB Check" which performs this function.

In a past life, I was a UniCam user. They also perform a check within their software modules.....

If you're in a pinch, you might consider outsourcing the p&p program generation to either someone with either of these packages, or to the OEM themselves. Not a cheap way out, but certainly quick.

Best of Luck Scott

I normally output the GC-Place designator and part number information using a modified machine PDF with the X and Y data removed. Then I use a simple VB macro in MS-Excel to automatically compare the output file with the original input file and highlight differences. This provides us with a quick and accurate verification.

And I am by no means an expert at VB.Possibly you or someone else at your company could do this. If you would like more info you can contact me at bkauffman@krautkramer.com or 717-242-0327 ext.382
