Using PLM to Manage Bills of Material

While Product Data Management (PDM) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) are often discussed as two different business applications, the different concepts they describe are really part of a single, holistic approach to managing information and processes. That said, it's useful to understand those concepts and capabilities, and how implementing them can help your business. 

In this third of a five-part series introducing the concepts of PLM we'll discuss Bills of Material (BOMs).  BOMs are the primary vehicle for describing a product.  They typically serve as the foundation for various fundamental business processes, which makes their proper management vital.  Topics that will be covered in this webcast are:  

  • How you can configure, manage, and share BOMs across the organization
  • Comparing BOMs to facilitate the change process
  • Incorporating suppliers and customers directly into your processes
  • Managing supplier qualifications and approved parts (AML/AVL)
  • Releasing BOMs and design information to manufacturing
