How OpenBOM democratizes PLM systems and hides the complexity of BOM management?

In this video, I discuss one of the biggest problems I’ve seen in PLM industry – complexity. Working for 20+ years in PLM, I’ve seen many companies struggling with the complexity of PLM and PDM solutions. 

So, our vision at OpenBOM was to change the status and democratize  PLM systems by following these 3 steps: 

1- Use the cloud and SaaS as a foundation. No IT, no custom deployment, you can create an account in a matter of minutes. 

2- Tight integration with Design and Engineering software. CAD systems are the foundation and the source of information for BOM and PLM. So, creating integrations can streamline the data and simplify the process. 

3- Integrate downstream processes. Starting with production planning and purchasing, OpenBOM provides an integrated mechanism to connect engineering information and drive the purchasing process (POs generation and batch planning). 

Watch the video.


At OpenBOM, we laser-focused on how to use the power of modern cloud technologies to hide the complexity of data management, BOM management, and integrations and help manufacturing companies to focus on product development and manufacturing. BOM mistakes are very costly to afford. BOM mistakes fire back in additional cost, delay, and regulation mistakes. Many existing PLM products are too expensive and too complex. OpenBOM is a new kind of technology and solution. 

Check the story about how OpenBOM helped thousands of manufacturing companies to streamline data management, processes, and escape the legacy of Excel spreadsheets.
