A case for organizations to transition from using simple spreadsheets to more robust BOM management tools for managing component data.

BOM Management White
Paper Abstract

  • Are automatically updated with the latest market data
  • Can automatically generate & disseminate alerts
  • Are error proof from manual mistakes
