BOM

Getting Control of Your BOMs

Bringing complex new products to market and maintaining them through their life requires managing bills of material (BOM) across many groups inside the organization and into the supply chain.

The challenge of managing multiple BOM representations can leave organizations struggling to improve quality, reduce time-to-market and manage costs.
