Presenting: Adopting a Single Bill of Materials (BOM) Strategy for Engineering and Manufacturing Integration - 8 Mar 2016, 03:35

BOM creation and transfer remains a big challenge for a smooth PLM deployment. Many are wary of bringing BOM management into PLM as it can raise a lot of challenges in management, time and cost. However, with the demand for better integration and collaboration, companies soon may not have a choice as they attempt to close the loops between engineering and manufacturing.

This session will explain how, with demonstrative examples, developing a single BOM across multiple disciplines will reap benefits across the whole product life cycle.

  • Explaining BOM in its many forms
  • An integrated approach in design, manufacturing, planning and production
  • BOM in closing the loop in PLM-ERP connectivity and interoperability
