Even though commercial PDM systems have a lot of nice functions, they are still heavy and expensive system to apply to small and medium manufacturing enterprises. From that reason, this study proposes a light and user-friendly PDM system dedicated for SMMEs which connects with several bill-of-materials (BOMs) and manages drawings, technical documents and design history. The BOM-centric PDM proposed mainly focuses on engineering BOM, green BOM, manufacturing BOM and process BOM. A prototype system implemented is applied to a few cases actually to know the usefulness of the system.
