It should be said that this trend has its profound background.Analysis, there are two main reasons to promote the enterprise to the attention of the BOM.
One aspect of the reason is that enterprises to pay more and more attention to product research and development, product positive development in the past mainly reverse development is different from the research and development management.Such as reverse development, management needs very little to early, basic starting from the detailed design drawings.Early multi-sectoral participation but not positive development, product planning, concept design phase, fine management is needed to make products from quality, cost and other aspects have a competitive advantage.
Another aspect of the reason is that the ideological trend of Internet + ascendant, diversification of sales model as well as to the product customization requirement, makes the thought of product design into modular design can well adapt to the trend.And the two aspects of motivation, will need to BOM as the carrier to the ground.
Companies at the time of building enterprise BOM system, will often ask: spend a lot of manpower material resources to build an enterprise where the value of an enterprise BOM is?
It is a not easy to answer the question, but unfortunately also often is of concern to business leaders, because enterprise BOM project is the real "head project", the project investment big, the decision-making level is high, in the habit of using return on investment to evaluate project of executives, with some simple Numbers to assess its value, of course, is better to directly.
So in some BOM project report or summary report, we often see is similar to "reduce data redundancy of XX %", "improve the reuse rate of XX %", "improve the timeliness of data sharing and improve work efficiency of XX %" and so on.But these persuasive seems to be not enough, its direct relevance seem to hit a question mark.
