BOM (Bill of Materials) - To rev or not to rev

#1
Good day,
we are having a great discussion on the necessity, or not, of having revision/version of the parts in the Bill of Material.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Aw Configuration Management - very dynamic in most cases. Do you have the ability to do an extract of the item detail for the items on the BOMs? if so you can do an extract "snap shot" that extracts the BOM items by both PN and Rev. In many cases that works well. Interested in others insights on this topic.

How dynamic is your product line? Will you ever have a need to know what rev of a part was in a product you supplied to your customer long after the fact? Do you have other reliable means of determining that answer?

Can a same part number have different revision levels? If the answer is yes, you want to make sure the proper revision level for the component is identified, don't you? If the BOM is used for that purpose, then, the obvious answer is: yes, the BOM should have the rev level of the part.

However, if the parts are issued and verified through other means, the BOM might not need to have the information. I have seen many different systems at work. In aerospace (most companies), for example, when a part gets reengineered/revised/changed, the P/N is changed as well. So, a same P/N does not have different revision levels.
