BOM Management

BOM Management

PDM and PLM systems enable BOM management without system discontinuities.

BOM Management

Managing parts master data and BOMs is complex. For example, the following challenges emerge in the course

of routine business:

  • Manual BOM generation and updating often performed using tables
  • Redundant maintenance of BOM information in ERP systems
  • Manual BOM checking from mechanical and electrical engineering

PDM systems can overcome such challenges. They include functions that automatically synchronize tasks, bills of

materials and project structures. Access data in real time – and in PDM and ERP. Find out more about the

individual solutions and the associated benefits for achieving successful projects.

Automatic Generation and Updating of BOMs

Use the BOM functions in the PDM system to create, maintain synchronize and integrate BOMs or parts master data.

Automatic Linking to ERP Systems

Use BOM functions in PDM systems and access information and data from ERP systems at any time. Avoid duplicate data maintenance with automatic updating – synchronously in PDM and ERP.

Automatic Mechatronic BOMs Synchronization

Use automatic synchronization to gain time and greater security in data maintenance. This eliminates the need for manual processing of mechatronic BOMs.
