Engineering Bills of Material and Routings

You can define an engineering bill of material or routing as alternates for a manufacturing bill or routing. This enables you to prototype variations from the primary bill of material that produce the same assembly.

You can specify a list of item catalog descriptive elements for model and option class engineering bills. After you release the engineering bill to manufacturing and take customer orders for specific configurations, Bills of Material creates the new configuration item and automatically assigns values to each catalog descriptive element.

Engineering lets you assign manufacturing and engineering items as components to the engineering bill of material.

Each routing you define can exist either in engineering or in manufacturing, and both engineering and manufacturing routings share the same resource, department, and standard operation information.

You can calculate manufacturing and cumulative lead times for engineering items.
