CIMdata, a global leader in PLM education, research & strategic management consulting, is conducting a market research survey on Multi-domain Engineering & Enterprise Bill of Materials (BOM) technology and business practices. This research will assess the current and future state of BOM markets, including their business value and impacts.
Industry leaders and innovators are adopting Multi-domain EBOM practices, to varying degrees and with varying levels of success. However, hesitancy does exist with the adoption of BOM solutions. CIMdata has observed that market confusion, uncertainty, and ambiguity as to the scope and functionality of the technology are all contributing factors. Uncertainty also exists around comparing the claims of various solution providers. There are substantial differences in terminology, solution approaches, strategies, obstacles, best practices, and benefits. This often contributes to resistance among industrial companies.
