Every manufacturing company has a distinctive production flow. Although each flow is unique, they all have one thing in common: a dependence on an engineering Bill of Materials (BOM) that can precisely identify and list the components required to make a particular product at any revision level. In order to have profitable and dynamic manufacturing processes, manufacturers must have accurate and up-to-date engineering BOMs that they can rely on. The determining factor in a manufacturing company’s success or failure is its ability to simplify and standardize BOM management across all departments.

Managing an engineering BOM with spreadsheets and paper files is a tedious and error prone endeavor, especially when multiple product development teams, contract manufacturers, or outside sources are involved. Also, if changes aren’t effectively communicated through the supply chain, incorrect revisions of a component may be built or products may have to be scrapped or reworked. Any manufacturing company that relies on BOMs needs solutions to these types of problems. In addition, they’re also looking for:
MasterControl’s engineering BOM software solution provides a configurable yet consistent approach to creating, viewing, and handling BOMs. The system controls all engineering BOM iterations generated during the design process and enables users to readily exchange BOM data with suppliers. The system allows users to easily view documents that define components directly from the BOM. This comprehensive overview ensures that the right documents and revisions are used throughout the manufacturing process. MasterControl also provides the capability to extract BOM data from PDM systems and automatically push it through to ERP systems.
MasterControl's engineering BOM solution allows users to control and easily manage the multiple iterations of an engineering bill of materials generated throughout the entire design process. The solution enables users to exchange BOM data with suppliers efficiently. It also insures that all departments have an accurate, updated view of the revision levels of every component in their particular configurations.
The MasterControl engineering bill of materials software solution also provides three different ways of viewing engineering BOMs:
