One of our European customer who is 175-year old in the business of manufacturing machines, Plants and services for Grain and Food processing industries. As a market leader, they offer comprehensive solutions and systems to suit specific customer needs such as equipment for rice milling, flour milling, colour sorting, animal feed technology, oil milling, grinding & dispersion technology to the global market, complete with engineering is continuously doing research in the advanced technologies and implementing it in the existing designs to get the benefits to its customers.
The client was looking to associate with a long-term engineering support services partner for Upgrading their existing platform from Bentley AutoPLANT to Siemens COMOS.
Hence all their legacy data related to standard parts such as Equipment’s, Piping Components, Switches, MCB, motors etc… needed to be created in Siemens COMOS Library Class with the Structure.
Challenge here was with the Volume of Master Data Collection considering every department and from Approved Vendors.
Sedin has provided engineering support services to a growing list of happy clients from around the globe. For this project, Our Team involved in Brainstorming discussion with Client from various departments and concluded to bring all Library Data Information into a specific Excel format with mandatory attribute information’s despite of any Legacy system used earlier.
Our development team created the VB script program which reads this Excel file as input and creates Objects in COMOS. The VB Script imports all standard parts and writes all the attribute information into COMOS as per Input file. Log file will be created upon each import process for the verification and analysis purpose.
Thus, this Bulk Import Framework saves lots of time, manual efforts for loading Library data into COMOS.
