Make bills of materials to perfect your products, and work with your warehouse to optimize production
The automotive industry requires precision and detail, as products need to meet compliance requirements and get through stringent stress tests. Vehicle condition reports after testing will decide the fate of cars and their parts, and for companies making both, this means getting them absolutely right before they can be sold to a wider market.
This is where well-written bills of materials (BOMs) can play a crucial role in production, as the finer details of each of your products are kept within them. Your BOMs are what your warehouse team will look to when constructing products, and you can include variations for different products, required auto parts inventory items, and notes in case there’s a specific detail around raw materials they need to know. From customized windows to specific headlight bulbs, it can be covered in your BOMs.
