There are few amazing stories there including videos. Don’t miss Michael White’s videos.

Here are my two favorite quotes coming from Michael White:

OpenBOM is different…It is a cloud based system that I can invite anyone into to view and edit…This means that I CAN share my BOMs with others and they CAN review and/or edit this single source of truth.

As for OpenBOM “Catalogs”. These made absolutely no sense to me. Then I had to edit some excel spreadsheets for similar products that used about 50% of the same parts. If I updated one excel sheet then there was a 50% chance I needed to update the other. Duplicate information is the “kiss-of-death”. OpenBOM Catalogs eliminate this by providing a “single source of truth” that can be referenced into any BOM.

My favorite videos is this one — OpenBOM and Onshape

One more favorite quote for today from David Anderson ( too much ).

“My first impression of OpenBOM was “Yay, No More Excel. My company is lean and mean and feels that records and process keeping are necessary to a level that is required to make our company efficient…. And no more.

Most of the available tools are too much. To much cost. Too much effort to implement. Too much to maintain. OpenBOM is perfect for our agile startup to get our product to market. It’s just the right size for us and fits nicely into our organization.


I’m very excited about OpenBOM progress in 2018 and look forward towards our 2019 stories. At OpenBOM we had amazing 2018. Our registration rate grew up x3 and our weekly active user number grew up x4 comparing to the beginning of 2018. Just to give you a glimpse of our geographical usage. This is the geographical distribution of OpenBOM users and customers (for the last week):

PS. Let’s get to know each other better. If you live in the Greater Boston area, I invite you for a coffee together (coffee is on me). If not nearby, let’s have a virtual coffee session — I will figure out how to send you a real coffee.
