Working without a bill of materials (BOM) creates an inefficient work environment. You have to keep cheat sheets or spend time researching the right part number when it comes time to make repairs. Instead of wasting this time, you can use a BOM to plan maintenance jobs. This type of paperwork is especially helpful for routine maintenance work. Additionally, any problems that arise in the middle of the night can be quickly handled by reviewing the bill of materials to find the replacements parts.
Spare Part Inventory List
Your BOM also works as inventory for your spare parts, which can ensure that you always have your most essential parts available. Taking the time to develop a detailed bill of materials, which is easy using your computerized maintenance management system, reduces hassle and streamlines your maintenance for an all around more efficient workplace.
