Abstract:  EBOM, CAD BOM, MBOM are the skeleton structures that run our businesses.  Efficient interaction between these BOM structures is critical to keep costs down and ensure integrity/consistency of our individual company’s key product’s intellectual property. 

What makes more sense between these two options:
1.        Separate BOM structures that are reconcilable against one another or
2.       A single BOM structure that is filtered to provide the BOM view of interest? 
What are the most costly aspects of moving between BOMs?  (CAD BOM to EBOM, EBOM to MBOM, CAD BOM to MBOM, etc.)
What are the hidden costs associated with BOM management? How could these cost burdens be reduced in an ideal state?
