What is a BOM?

What is a BOM?


Often referred to as product structure or associated list, the Bill Of Materials is a list of raw materials required for product assembly and a comprehensive list of parts, items, assemblies, and sub-assemblies, which can be understood as the recipe and shopping list for creating a final product. The quality of your Bill of Materials can make or break your product. The required complexity of a functional BOM multiplies when dealing with international manufacturers. Our international project management team can assemble a bill of materials that will translate and communicate a product clearly at every stage of the production process.

 

A typical BOM is comprised of multiple parts, each part takes up a line and each line lists:

  • Product Code
  • Part Name
  • Part Number
  • Part Revision
  • Description
  • Quantity
  • Unit of Measure
  • Size
  • Length
  • Weight
  • Specifications
  • Features of the Product
