BOM Webinar: Who is who in Bill of Materials Management Process

This week we continued the serious of “BOM Basics” webinars and speak about people. Yes, I always like to say that technologies are easy, but people are hard. Bill of Materials Management is teamwork that requires the coordination of many people in the single process of creation and use of information in the bill of materials. 

The information in the bill of materials is belonging to engineers originally creating the product, manufacturing planners who work on the process of manufacturing and production, purchasing people involved in the process of buying parts or outsourcing the work. 

Here is an example of a Skateboard manufacturing company. 

Who are those people involved in a process of designing, engineering, planning, assembly and final shipment of the product? 

Finally, the process looks like the following picture. Check who are the people (or departments) involved. 

Check the slide deck from the webinar here.

And watch video recording from the webinar. 


Bill of Materials is the lifeblood of the product development process and practically everything in manufacturing. A company is using BOM to organize information and coordinate people. It is an essential piece of the information you need to succeed in manufacturing. It is important to share BOM and related information to keep people on the same page (or you can say on the same BOM :)).
