Cloud Based BOM Management System

Ciiva Cloud-based BOM Analysis and Generation

With the Ciiva cloud-based BOM Management Software, all of your Bill of Materials are controlled in one centralized database, shared with whoever and whatever needs it. You have complete revision control and 100% traceability.

The BOM analysis and generation is performed on Ciiva.com, using data that you have loaded into the Ciiva client. The client is downloaded and installed on your PC. The client interacts seemlessly with the cloud-based search and analysis engine, allowing you to easily check the assigned parts, and change them where needed.

The Three Tier Component Model

Main article: Three Tier Component Model

All Ciiva technology is built on a concept called the three tier component model. This model neatly resolves the dilemma where companies managing bill of materials often have their own internal part numbering system they use to refer to a specific component, and similarly, manufacturers and suppliers also maintain their own part numbering system. By using a three tiered structure, it is possible to accurately represent and manage component second source, substitution and many-to-many relationships between them.

The three types of component in the three tier component model are referred to as Base, Manufacturer and Supplier components. In Ciiva, they can be easily identified through the use of different icon colours which are blue, orange and green respectively.
