Jobscope’s Engineering module is designed for Engineer to Order (ETO), Make to Order (MTO), Government Contractor, Job Shop or Maintenance Repair and Overhaul manufacturing companies, takes up the design process where the CAD system leaves off, and carries it through to the Project Management subsystem. The Engineering module is intended to allow the design engineers to do their work in the CAD system then pass the work off to someone else who takes care of creating new part numbers and bills of material.

Engineering CAD Integration
Microsoft Excel is a common point for data in the engineering world. CAD systems can download drawings and bill of material data to it, external engineering departments may send bill of material data in Excel, and many engineers prefer it as the place where they develop bills of material and parts lists.
Map Master provides a means for taking this data from an Excel spreadsheet and creating assembly drawing lists, bills of material, or both. It also can handle either single-level or multi-level bills of material in a single spreadsheet.
Design Data Management
The Design Data Management module turns CAD drawings into ready-to-use bills of material. You can browse to the drawings and display the drawing items. The drawings may have company part numbers, vendor part numbers, no part numbers at all, or some combination of these. If the system knows the part numbers, it will display them.
Parts and Change Control
The Parts and Change Control module has four modes of operation – Parts, Routings, Drawings, and Engineering Change Notices (ECN).
Parts – The Parts mode display can list all levels of an indented bill of material, or it may be collapsed to a single level. More than one bill of material may be displayed, and bill of material components copied and pasted from one to another. Complex assemblies may be built or copied from assembly drawings. A mass change feature allows all bill of material components in an assembly to be updated in a single entry.
Routings – Routings operations may have QA Inspections, QA Inspection Methods, employee skill requirements, tools, fixtures, equipment, and documents linked. Liked documents may be displayed by double clicking on the links displayed.
Drawings – Drawings mode displays the drawing master, drawing revisions, and drawing items. Drawing items are the individual parts called out on assembly drawings.
When drawings are initially extracted from the CAD system in the Design Flow Control module, they may not have part numbers, either because the design engineer did not know the part numbers, or more likely, because they were new parts for which part numbers had not been assigned. The new part numbers may be assigned in the Design Flow Control module, or here, in the Drawings mode of the Parts and Change Control module.
Engineering Change Notices (ECN) – The ECN mode of the Parts and Change Control module provides two primary functions. One is to provide a master record of the Engineering Change Notices and their implementation status, and the other is to actually make changes to bills of material and routings that are under change control. In JOBSCOPE, “under change control” means that users are not allowed to simply access a bill of material or routing and change it, but rather the change must be linked to an ECN so that changes are tightly controlled.
