Update on vlog – Musings About Bill of Materials

I’m making progress with my work on new Beyond PLM video blog – Musings about Bill of Materials. If you missed my previous updates, you can catch up here  Video blog progress – Musings about Bill of Materials or here 10 years of blogging and starting video blog.

I define my mission with video blog – to bring simplicity in a complex world of engineering and manufacturing enterprise software. We’ve been swamped by complex terms for the past decades. New names are coming into this space – Digital Thread,  Digital Transformation, Internet of Things, Collaborative Data Platforms, Product Innovation Platform. But these names aren’t helping much to people that want to figure out what is all about. How to manage engineering and manufacturing processes, how to define data in a write way and to move from a clunky old fashion document and database silos to agile data driven digital processes.

Buzzwords don’t speak well and therefore in my video blog I will speak a simple language. And I start from the most fundamental thing in engineering and manufacturing – musing about Bill of Materials. I want to share my knowledge, but also to help community of people developing engineering and manufacturing software to get back to roots and to focus on how to make life in manufacturing company easier.

Here are few videos:



I also experimented with few smaller videos – I called them BOM Wisdom.


What is my conclusion? It is hard to push yourself out of comfort zone and sit down in front of camera.I hope I’m getting better. Thank you for kind words and support! Your help and comments are really needed. Thanks for all who reached out with ideas and recommendations. If you like what I do, please subscribe to my YouTube channel and like videos 🙂

Best, Oleg
