BOM Management

Product Innovation and Business Process Efficiency

ENOVIA EBOM Management capabilities enable product innovation and business process efficiency for design and engineering. It allows customers to create engineering parts and bills-of material to connect design, supply chain, manufacturing, quality and compliance users and business processes in support of a simultaneous global product launch.

ENOVIA MBOM Management provides companies with a comprehensive manufacturing and as-built bill-of-material management solution enabling improved transfer of design intent to distributed manufacturing sites.

When implemented together, a seamless flow of global product development and manufacturing processes is enabled.

Description

One of the significant challenges within the global product development process is providing a single, consolidated, fully connected, global view of the combined product design structure and engineering bill of material.  As new products are introduced with market-specific functions and options, the complexity is compounded.

ENOVIA EBOM Management capabilities help companies innovate and improve efficiencies for global product development by incorporating the following best business practices:

  • Reduce design and BOM errors and enable innovation through the automatic generation and update of data driven, fully connected, multi-discipline design and engineering product views
  • Accelerate product launch in multiple markets, by enabling parallel business processes directly from the context of the product engineering bill of material
  • Enable global product teams to efficiently collaborate on, approve and implement product changes through a common automated  process

When ENOVIA EBOM & MBOM Management capabilities are used together  companies can innovate and improve efficiencies for global product development by incorporating the following best business practices:

  • Reduce design and BOM errors and enable innovation through the automatic generation and update of data driven, fully connected, multi-disciplined design and engineering product views.
  • Accelerate multi-geo product launch, by enabling parallel Engineering, Manufacturing, Supply Chain, Compliance, Quality and Service business processes directly from the context of the product engineering bill of material.
  • Enable global product teams to efficiently collaborate, approve and implement product changes through a common, automated change process.

ENOVIA MBOM Management addresses a number of specific global manufacturing business challenges including:

  • Reduce costs and improve product quality by enabling part re-use across multiple manufacturing sites.
  • Reduce costs and improve product quality by enabling centralized supply chain planning for purchased components including the authorization and propagation of available alternate or substitute parts across multiple manufacturing sites.
  • Reduce cycle time, effort and translation errors related to the analysis and implementation of engineering changes across multiple manufacturing sites through an automated, intelligent engineering to manufacturing change process.
  • Reduce inconsistencies and manual reconciliation of serialized parts by providing the ability to plan, create, update and link unit specific as-built BOM structures for industries which require unit based manufacturing and traceability.

3DEXPERIENCE Platform User Experience

Key Benefits

  • Consolidate part design and related technical document content from multiple engineering tools by providing a single definition of the EBOM.
  • Increase product innovation through improved communication and collaboration with global development teams leveraging 3D visualization and electronic communication including email and ad-hoc workflow
  • Use analysis reports that quickly identify component usage, highlight differences between assemblies, and summarize design changes over time.
  • Reduce cost and time-to-market while defining the enterprise EBOM by searching and reusing standard parts.
  • Build products right the first time by selecting qualified, approved and preferred components.
  • Leverage skills and knowledge of the entreprise and supply chain through institutionalization of cross-functional product development and engineering change processes
  • Reduce the communication gap between engineering and manufacturing relative to production builds and their allocated designs.
  • Run reports with detailed engineering and manufacturing part assignment, supplier preferences, EBOM and MBOM differences between assemblies, and summarized changes over time.
  • Enable product and manufacturing engineers to work concurrently to detect and correct problems before release.
  • Centrally manage internal and supplier equivalent parts and their manufacturing usage (alternates, substitutes) and preferences, without sacrificing the flexibility of plants to make a local changes or make/buy and alternate part usage decisions.
