Engineering BOM Management

The BOM Process Challenge

Bringing complex products to market and maintaining them through their life is a multi-step process. It requires managing bills of material (BOM) not only across mechanical, electrical, and software disciplines but in the extended supply chain as well.

The challenge of managing multiple BOMs leaves organizations struggling to improve quality, reduce time-to-market, and manage costs.
