Case 1: E-BOM and M-BOM by Manufacturing site
Overview of the case: Create and manage M-BOM for each factory with PLM system and improve accuracy of master information.
Operation: Creates M-BOM for manufacturing site from E-BOM by Obbligato. Then, manufacturing person in charge at each manufacturing site transfers the M-BOM to ERP system after the approval of BOM maintenance.
Trend of applied company: Widely adopted in electrical and high-tech industry. Adopted by many large to small and medium sized companies. Often in the case when one product is manufactured at one factory.
Expected merits: Streamline engineering changes. Reduce information transmission time. Streamline BOM editing (PLM system is behaved as a BOM editing tool for ERP system). Central management of standard information for supporting a flexible manufacturing map and business continuity plan (BCP).
Case 2: E-BOM and master M-BOM
Overview of the case: Create standard M-BOM with PLM system and manage M-BOM with ERP system at each manufacturing site
Operation: Manufacturing engineering person in charge creates M-BOM and manage standard parts configuration and process information by Obbligato. Then, transfers M-BOMs to ERP system after approval and maintain the transaction of BOM by ERP system.
Trend of applied company: Mostly adopted in automotive parts industry. Mainly adopted by global companies that have many overseas manufacturing sites. Often in the case when one product is manufactured at multiple factories. Technical information related to manufacturing is controlled and managed by manufacturing engineering department in HQ(Japan).
Expected merits: Streamline engineering changes. Reduce information transmission time. Streamline instructions to manufacturing sites and strengthening governance. Strengthening traceability and management of quality information.
