If you work with manufacturing engineers for more than an hour you are going to hear the phrase BOM, which you quickly learn means: Bill of Materials. In its simplest definition, a BOM is the list of parts or components that are necessary to build a product. It may also include the raw materials, sub-components, sub-assemblies, quantities, parts and complete assemblies of a finished product.
When you cook, you can add a little of this and a little of that. When you bake, it is chemistry at work and you need specific measurements of the exact ingredients if you want a successful finished product. The BOM in manufacturing is the recipe to make the perfect product!
