TIP: How to ensure a clean BOM

How to ensure a clean BOM:

  • Verify BOM information with component datasheets to validate accuracy. Try the BOM Compare Tool to compare two BOM files.
  • Validate BOM entries with the reference designators in the design files to ensure consistency and prevent duplication.
  • Double-check vendor details, part numbers, and lead times to manage the assembly errors.
  • Estimate component quantities accurately as per the assembly requirements.
  • Regularly review and update the BOM to identify obsolete components and restock them with suitable alternatives.
  • Implement a checklist to cross-check BOM against the design files.
