What Is Bill of Materials Software?
Bill of materials (BOM) software automates the process of listing the individual components that make up a product in the manufacturing setting. Users can create item profiles for every part that goes into a specific product, then use these to create multiple lists for a single product to show subassemblies. For years, this process was performed manually on paper. Spreadsheets helped businesses track more information about each part than was possible on paper, but the manual entry of data is tedious and error-prone.
