Replace multiple distributed spreadsheets with a single BOM
Spreadsheets are the number #1 tool used for BOM management today. Despite the availability of many PDM, PLM, MRP, SCM, ERP systems, Excels or Google Spreadsheets are people’s favorable tool. The reasons people like using spreadsheets are:
Modern manufacturing environment are distributed. Manufacturing companies, contractors, suppliers are all working together; often, continents away from each other. Speed and coordination across distributed environments is important. However, gaining access to the right BOM at any moment in time, especially when most needed, is even more important. We all want to avoid the dreaded, “who and when sent the right spreadsheet and where can it be found?” question. More often than not, the answer isn’t simple.
