BOM Scrub
Understanding the importance of things like regular BOM scrubbing is essential to modern engineering. Around 80% of a product’s budget is decided at the engineering BOM stage – i.e. in early development. Nowadays it is common for mechanical and electrical engineering companies to use CAD drafting tools and 2D to 3D modeling applications to get new system designs into production faster. However, BOM management is equally important. You can also use BOM software as a component cross reference tool to check which components have been used in previous projects. This can cut costs enormously, avoiding the need to build parts from scratch.

Most product BOMs are dirty, consisting of duplicate and incomplete part data. Data cleansing is the foundation of successful compliance management. bom scrub involves verifying the consistency and accuracy of manufacturer names and part numbers and the integrity of all line item information. It also minimizes obsolete inventory – by correctly ordering the appropriate part, obsolete inventory and subsequent write-offs are kept to a minimum. The BOM is also critical in the proper functionality of many purchasing, procurement, component second sourcing, planning and manufacturing execution systems. Thus enough attention should be paid to its accuracy. BOM scrubbing consists of correcting or validating three basic content fields from a bill of materials – orderable part number, manufacturer’s name, and component description. Component monitoring and Bom scrubs should be an ongoing activity for the materials team. This is important for efficient and cost effective functionality of your business. One can hire consultants for this in case of absence of skilled staff.
