BOM Costing

BOM costing in the electronic manufacturing business can be a challenging exercise.

For your customer - the OEM Company - to successfully outsource the production of a printed board assembly, a clear and complete bill of material (BOM) is a prerequisite.

In reality and certainly in the early NPI stages of a new project the BOM is often not too well documented and this can make life difficult for you in preparing a winning quotation.

A clean BOM should include for each line the approved manufacturer, the full manufacturer part number and the package type, at least.

Missing or wrong information on the BOM, sometimes only a few characters or digits in a part number, can cost a great deal of money.
