Home » Solutions » 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 an electronic system like Omnify Empower to manage BOMs can suffer from inaccurate data, lack of revision control to view and track changes, and informal Change/ECO management processes.
"With the implementation of Omnify PLM software, we have been able to achieve a single Engineering BOM that is controlled in Omnify PLM and can only be changed via the formal Omnify Change process. The process is automatic and fool proof and there can no longer be a difference between what is designed and what is built."
- R.M. “Marty” Jeide, program manager, Astronics Advanced Electronic Systems
