According to Gartner®, “More than 90% of manufacturers surveyed have digital thread initiatives in progress.”
In this Gartner report, you will learn about the following Key Findings/Recommendations for top BOM practices:
- Ninety-one percent of manufacturers surveyed claim to have either implemented, are implementing or plan to implement digital threads.
- An inability to associate equivalent items in different views of bills of materials (BOMs) will erode the value of digital threads long before the life cycle of a product is complete.
- Product development organizations, manufacturing operations, service teams, procurement and suppliers each depend on their own views of BOMs to work effectively and efficiently.
- Most product digital threads created today are limited to the design and manufacturing phases of product life cycles, and do not include service life or end of life.
