What is an Engineering Bill of Materials (EBOM)?

Engineering Bill of Materials Definition

The engineering bill of materials (EBOM) reflects the “as designed” assembly for a given product. It contains the list of items, parts, components, subassemblies, and assemblies in the product designed by engineering. EBOMs are typically created by engineers using computer-aided design (CAD) or electronic design automation (EDA) software solutions.
