BOM in Project Management

Everything is a project. Product development, manufacturing planning, customer services, NPD (new product development), and ETO (Engineering to Order)… This is only a small set of project activities that you can meet when you step into the manufacturing world. In the modern manufacturing environment, companies are continuously required to collaborate and work with dozens of contractors, suppliers, engineers, and other team members. To collaborate and share information is a crushing responsibility of software to help to manufacture to coordinate and stay on schedule.
