Multiple BOM views and the ability to manage each view is required by many companies today. That may include some or all of the following:
- Engineering BOM (EBOM) as designed
- Manufacturing BOM (MBOM) as planned
- Manufacturing Executed BOM (MES BOM) as built
- As Shipped BOM
- As Maintained BOM
Providing access and visibility to the multiple BOM views throughout the lifecycle ensures that internal and external collaborators have accurate information relevant to their discipline and improves the productivity, collaboration and quality of the product.
