BOM File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a BOM file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .BOM files.

What is a BOM file?

The .bom file extension is most commonly used by the Pro/ENGINEER 3-D production design software application. The BOM files used by this software are temporary files. These files are created when the application cannot allocate sufficient memory to perform necessary tasks. When the application is done with the BOM file, the file is usually deleted automatically.

The .bom file extension is also used for OrCAD schematic capture bill of materials files, MicroSim PCBoard bill of materials files, Softshare Delta Business object model files and Apple Mac OS X Bill of Materials files.
