ANN ARBOR, MI, USA, Mar 11, 2022 – CIMdata, Inc., the leading global product lifecycle management strategic management consulting and research firm, announces a free educational webinar, “The Value Potential of Multi-view Bill of Materials.” The webinar will take place on Thursday, April 7, at 11:00 a.m. (EDT) and last for one hour.
Adopting a Multi-view Bill of Materials approach has value potential. In the Multi-view BOM approach, a consolidated information resource contains all the information and maintains all the relationships between data elements that are needed to support the perspectives of multiple communities, such as product, manufacturing, and service engineering. The basis of value with this approach is automated reconciliation and synchronization across domain views that can be created and managed with optimal autonomy.
CIMdata’s research and industrial consulting activities have revealed that commercial PLM solutions have advanced to enable this approach. In response, leaders in many industries are starting to implement multi-view BOM solutions. With the newness and complexity of this application, there is little experience to draw from to identify and predict value. This presentation will describe several case studies and the expected business value identified by those making these investments.
This webinar will help attendees:
- Gain an understanding of the interrelated concepts of Digital Thread, lifecycle product structure, and the connection between the four principal product structure configurations.
- Understand the purpose of eBOMs, mBOMs, and sBOMs and the unique strategic benefits of the multi-view BOM approach.
- Comprehend the state of maturity of multi-view BOM capability available in commercial software and maturity of industrial implementations.
- Learn about the challenges, successes, and value objectives of industry leaders implementing multi-view BOM solutions.
According to webinar host James Roche, CIMdata’s Aerospace & Defense Practice Director, “Within the last 3 to 5 years, commercial PLM solutions have advanced to enable the Multi-view Approach to bill of materials management. In this approach, a consolidated information resource contains all the information and maintains all the relationships between data elements that are needed to support the perspectives of multiple communities, such as Product, Manufacturing, and Service Engineering. And the sufficiency of these capabilities for application in aerospace was validated through benchmarking in 2020. This is a big deal. But it is complicated, and it is new. Two reasons why learning from the experiences of industry leaders is so important.”
Jim Roche has 35+ years of experience in transformation and IT enablement of product development and manufacturing processes. Before joining CIMdata, he was a PLM Practice Manager at CSC Consulting and A.T. Kearney. He was also at EDS, where he served as the chief architect for General Motors’ global engineering systems and as the head technical negotiator for strategic supplier contracts.
Anyone with responsibility or interest in product program integration, systems engineering, PLM program planning, digitalization, or the digital thread will find this presentation interesting.
During the webinar, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed. To find out more, visit: https://www.cimdata.com/en/events/webinars/event/685-webinar-the-value-potential-of-multi-view-bill-of-materials.
