Before we dive deeper with intricate details, we need to understand this principle: without EBOM, there’s no MBOM. Our engineers show you the trade secrets and the learning curve on how the supply chain works from a design standpoint to a manufacturing standpoint.
BOM is an essential blueprint in taking your design from concepts to reality. Once you understand the behind-the-scenes of workflow process, it will be easier to digest just how crucial each element is—regardless if you’re the client, consultant or contractor in a building project life cycle.
In almost any industry, BOM is typically easier to comprehend in a product design development, but let’s discuss its application in our specialized sector. Particularly in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, our specialized MEPF engineers utilize their industry-specific knowledge to bring life to your building projects.
For your understanding, we take you through the step-by-step process of how crucial BOM is:
From the get-go, our MEPF engineers specialize in their own disciplines to design your plans and draft the specifications which will support all the subsequent stages thereafter. All EBOM, followed with its largely-dependent MBOM for your building project, originate from this starting point.
Project managers and construction managers utilize EBOM to coordinate the construction administration aspects of your building project such as document control, shop drawing fabrication and construction work orders.
- Construction cost estimation
Multi-level EBOM proves to be very beneficial for your building’s commercial compliance as this serves as a control cost point from the quantity take-offs to the final project developmental costs.
- Supply chain coordination
Transition from engineering to manufacturing standpoint for your building project takes place in this stage. From EBOM to MBOM, processes include sourcing, procurement, sales purchase orders, logistics, and inventory and warehouse management.
When your building project calls for high material demand or fast-track construction, your original manufacturers for the MEPF components will outsource some of its production control to meet the product assembly requirement from the MBOM.
After successful fabrication from MBOM application, your contractors and suppliers will work hand-in-hand to plan the site logistics. Manufactured MEPF components can be assembled on-site or off-site pursuant to its functional and structural requirements, and then delivered in-situ for erection.
- Operations and maintenance
For this final stage, all EBOM and MBOM utilized from the initial phases can be utilized for the facilities management of your building project.
By no means it’s an easy feat to tackle small-scale to large-scale building projects, especially when chain reactions from building workflow processes strictly demand expertise and experience for less mistakes. At New York Engineers, we have the two E’s to take your building projects from start to end.
