Scott Heide, CEO and Founder of Engineering Intent, the world’s leading provider of enterprise engineering automation tools, was recently interviewed by Dirk Dusharme, host of Quality Digest Live Video. Heide discussed some of the biggest problems with the 150% BOM (bills of materials) approach. View the video here.
According to Scott Heide, a member of the Forbes Technology Council, “Manufacturers are drowning in bills of materials (BOMs). Moving past standard products into the world of custom or customized products, increasingly complex bills of materials are a clue that something is suboptimal in adoption of customization procedures. Over the last several decades, the ability to customize has become increasingly attractive to a growing number of companies. This occurs most often when the company makes complex and technologically superior products that please customers.”
