Bill Material Life Cycle

After a component or product is produced, it needs to be serviced and maintained for the duration of the product life cycle. So that the product owner may properly plan for spare component inventories, maintenance, and overhaul, OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) also publishes Service Bill of Material along with Product Specification. Since service BOM is more closely tied to part information and detail than manufacturing, it is typically derived from design BOM. However, from the perspective of maintenance and overhaul, it will also be derived from MBOM. as in the assembly process. Additionally, the service BOM includes more detailed data that is essential from a serviceability standpoint, such as information about oil on bearings, etc.
At Quantum we encourage following BOM requirements and can provide assistance and guidance on how to manage it at best.
