An engineering BOM is created at the very beginning of product design by engineers in either CAD or EDA, listing items that will be necessary to manufacture a particular product. They are a crucial step in the product lifecycle because a well-laid-out engineering BOM can help manufacturers avoid problems down the line.
One key step to establishing a fully digitized manufacturing process that works concurrently with product design is establishing an engineering bill of materials that’s used to derive the manufacturing BOM and service BOM—and remains connected.
Transforming the BOM, One Step at Time
No matter what stage your current BOM processes are in, we can help connect engineering, manufacturing, service to drive more cooperative product development.
Enable product design to associatively create the engineering BOM from up-to-date CAD and PLM data
Through a consistent digital thread of information running through our product’s lifecycle, we have been able to reduce production time and errors, and reduce our stock of product components due to the precision introduced into the manufacturing process.
