ENOVIA Bill of Materials Management empowers product engineers to create and maintain a complete, accurate, and up-to-date bill of materials (BOMs). Today, most products require contributions from multiple disciplines including mechanical, electrical and software engineering. This increases product complexity and, therefore, the task of creating an accurate BOM and maintaining it as changes occur through the product development process. Enterprise stakeholders depend on an accurate BOM to purchase, manufacture, sell, and support products. ENOVIA provides a consolidated, fully connected global or site-specific view of the bill of materials, and a common automated development and change process to maintain accuracy. The result is improved collaboration, less rework, higher product quality and lower development costs.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows companies to manage their mechanical, electrical PCB, and system-on-a-chip design data so changes can be formally controlled while facilitating collaboration. The data can either be managed natively with a connector to the CAD software tool, or the data can be converted into the same format used with 3DEXPERIENCE
Today, agility to quickly deliver product variants to the market is critical for companies seeking to meet rapidly changing consumer demand for personalized products. ENOVIA Configuration Management helps manufacturers with highly configurable products manage global product designs and bill of materials containing all variants.
