Bill Of Materials
A Bill of Materials (BOM) is a list of all the components and materials required to build or assemble a product. It includes information such as the quantity, description, and specifications of each item. Think of it as a recipe that outlines all the ingredients needed to cook a dish. In product management, a BOM helps organize the manufacturing process and ensures that all necessary parts are included. It's like a shopping list for product development, making sure nothing is left out.
