Getting Control of your BOMs
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 BOM representations leaves organizations struggling to improve quality, reduce time-to-market, and manage costs.
