Why import data in bulk?

The import feature in Mobius enables you to enhance productivity by leveraging Excel. Whether you have multiple products or want to expedite calculations, the import feature is your ally.


How to structure products based on your bill-of-materials?

You will see your product structure when you have retrieved your downloaded CSV file. If you want to add more products in the CSV file, you can easily add the other product Bill-of-materials in the file with Mobius format.

For instance, you have a cotton T-shirt. And you would like to add another T-shirt in the model with an organic cotton material. So, you can easily copy-paste your new bio-cotton T-shirt underneath the previous cotton T-shirt data (Figure 1).

Caution - Product importing and naming: In Mobius, everything is linked. If we use the same name, the data will be overwritten. Therefore, if you want to upload another product in the model you must use a different name. For instance, you could name it with a specific name such as "T-shirt (Organic Cotton)" although it has the same manufacturing processes as the other product.
