Cloud-based PLM for bill-of-materials management in aerospace and defense
In this ebook, learn about the benefits of implementing a cloud-based product lifecycle management (PLM) system.
The impact of product complexity on bill-of-materials management
Aircraft today are becoming increasingly complex, with more integrated systems driven by software and electronics. When one small design change can impact an entire project, having a way to effectively connect all stakeholders to the latest data becomes crucial.
This need for a single source of truth is particularly apparent for those who interact with the bill of materials (BOM). Implementing a PLM system can help navigate issues of collaboration and alignment around the BOM. A BOM managed within a PLM system can deliver a single definition of the product where all stakeholders can visualize, track changes and validate product configurations within a collaborative digital environment.
Aerospace bill-of-materials management in the cloud
A PLM system allows you to manage product-related processes and information across many domains, including bill-of-materials management. However, a cloud-based PLM system offers additional benefits. With a cloud-based software-as-a-service solution, you can get a PLM system up and running on day one. With web-based access and no installation, your team teams can collaborate on project information, including the BOM, from anywhere.
