"How Do I Create & Manage an Accurate BOM?"

This eBook highlights BOM management challenges and how a cloud-based SaaS approach aids aerospace and defense companies in overcoming them.

The bill of materials (BOM) is a critical piece of product development. Once engineering develops this deliverable, downstream departments use it to guide development, from design to manufacturing to regulatory approvals and certifications. Thus, the BOM is key to many stakeholders, both internal and external to the aerospace and defense company, including departments such as manufacturing, procurement, sales, finance, and servicing.

Each functional department tweaks and modifies the BOM for its own purpose. Engineering relies on it to track revisions and changes, meet cost targets and satisfy product requirements for performance, environmental compliance, serviceability, and safety. Manufacturing uses it to plan manufacturing processes and assembly operations.

Procurement harnesses it to source components. Service refers to it to plan service operations and spare parts provisioning. Management looks to the BOM to assess risk and formulate a risk management strategy.

This eBook will focus on the challenges of BOM management and how a cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) approach can help aerospace and defense companies overcome those challenges.
