A Bill of Material Transformation Method for Design-Manufacturing Integration

Wei MU, Chun-liu ZHOU, Hong-guang BO, Jun-yi LIANG


n order to support design–manufacturing integration (DMI), a transformation method is proposed by recognizing the features of EBOM and MBOM, to effectively ensure data integrity, correctness and consistency in systems. By defining different components, the transformation processes are identified and a formal transformation model of BOM view is proposed. Then, rules for BOM transforming and conversion algorithms are described. Engineering change problems also are solved by processing rules. This research has achieved an automatic conversion of BOM. Finally, the practical application in the enterprise indicated that this method is effective for DMI.
