Please circle your calendars for July 8th for our PDG-wide BOM Working Session at the Virginia Modeling and Simulation Center (VMASC) in Suffolk, VA! 
Details and registration can be found at   Please register no later than June 23rd so we can prepare appropriately.  Note: For those needing hotel accommodations, we will post a list of hotels shortly.
Also, a public draft of the "Guide for BOM Use and Implementation" is now available. Please visit the aforementioned web site to download and provide comments.
Finally, I'm pleased to announce that this month of June we will be releasing the "BOM Template Specification Volume I - Interface BOM" document for a 120 trial use period!  At that time, we will encourage everyone to download and begin to use these two documents in support of your projects and efforts.  Of course, please plan to attend the BOM Working Session in July to get even more insight into the BOM methodology including an electronic copy of these documents.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email or call.
