Comparing BOM Structures: a multi-faceted need

The need to compare two BOM structures side by side is almost as old as the concept of multi-level BOMs itself. Use-cases requiring such a comparison have only grown as supply chains get more and more complex. Manufacturing partners who are not plugged into your PLM system still need to know about design changes in an assembly as it goes through minor revisions. Configuration managers need to know the differences caused by variants used in various instances of model BOMs. Service engineers need to know how a customer's installation varies from the design spec that engineering has provided. Planners need to run optimization scenarios on multiple proposed ECOs with complex changes to BOM structures to determine which one has the lowest risk. The list is endless.[Read More]
