Today’s accelerated pace of product development, product and supplier dynamics, and manufacturing and engineering outsourcing make it more and more difficult to meet product launch goals on time and under budget. Simple communication issues can cost valuable time and cause unwanted scrap on the production floor.

Bill of Material (BOM) Management
Managing the Bill of Material (BOM) is a key component in managing the definition of a product. An inaccurate or incomplete BOM can cause lost weeks in a schedule and result in wasted production runs.
Companies that do not leverage a PLM system to manage BOMs can suffer from inaccurate data, lack of revision control to view and track changes, and informal Change/ECO management processes.
Omnify PLM provides full Bill of Material management functionality including:
- Complete BOM revision control and audit trail
- Structured Change/ECO management process to control BOM (and other data) changes
- “Where Used/Not Used” information available on all items/parts
- Comprehensive importing/exporting/reporting to and from various file formats
- Direct integration with ERP system for automated BOM uploads/updates
- BOM comparisons (compare multiple BOMs)
- Complete BOM hierarchy viewing from a single form
- BOM Routing to document manufacturing, assembly, test, and inspection procedures
The BOM Routing module allows you to document all manufacturing, assembly, test, and inspection procedures.
- Document manufacturing, assembly, inspection, and test procedures
- Define/Display operations/stages and steps/sequences (hierarchically)
- Revision and ECO/Change controlled routing
- Link to product records for document/graphical depiction
- BOM/Routing quantity validation
Benefits of BOM Management
- Eliminate manual BOM Management processes (Excel spreadsheets, file folders, etc.)
- Improve data integrity by eliminating error-prone manual BOM entry processes
- Implement streamlined/structured BOM Change/ECO processes
- Manage all released and pre-release/prototype BOM revisions
- Import data from any file format (Excel, XML, text, etc.) or directly from Engineering tools
- Ensure data accuracy through automatic uploads to ERP and other business systems
Product documents such as design files (models, assemblies, schematics, specifications), manufacturing files (assembly drawings, PCB, Gerber), and supplier files (datasheets, compliance documents, specifications, quotes) are critical components in managing the complete product record. Access, availability, and revision control are necessary functions to effective document control.
