There are multiple BOMs (Bills of Material) within a single company in most manufacturing companies. The same information is stored in several places of multiple BOMs in a company. It becomes issues to keep integrity of BOMs and to maintain multiple BOMs updated latest at the same time. Historically a BOM was created to support the particular operations. Several BOMs have been developed for different department needs. The role of BOM has been recently changed from operational support to the communication tool. Integration of multiple BOMs is ideal. This paper clarifies the obstacles to integrate BOMs. It clarifies the differences of views between design engineers and plant engineers. Coexistence of multiple views within a single integrated BOM is now possible.
