With A&D products containing tens of thousands of parts, and potentially millions of lines of software code–produced by hundreds of companies dispersed across the globe, Aerospace & Defense organizations understand the fundamental value and dire need for robust Change & Configuration Management (CM) processes. But it’s not just the number of parts, lines of code, or partners driving the need for better processes. The complexity of products and development processes, as well as the globalization of product development, are all contributing to an environment that is becoming more difficult to manage with each new program or project.
For most electronics and high tech companies, the bill-of-materials (BOM) is the central hub of product definition activities. It conveys the information needed by various departments, such as Engineering, Procurement and Manufacturing, to get the product built. However, current BOM development processes are not well-suited to today’s realities.
