A Bill of Materials (BOM) lists the quantities of raw materials, assemblies, sub-components, and parts you need to manufacture a product. A BOM can be used to communicate between manufacturing partners, multiple facilities within the organization, or with a single manufacturing plant.
After your administrator enables the Advanced Bill of Materials feature, the Advanced BOM record replaces the Assembly/Bill of Materials record. When you use Advanced BOM, any existing BOM is automatically converted to a read-only legacy BOM record.
Advanced BOM enables you to do the following:
Copy existing BOMs and create new BOMs
Use a single BOM across multiple assemblies
For example, multiple bicycle frame sizes could all use the same wheel assembly BOM.
Assign multiple BOMs to a single assembly
Apply unique BOMs to various stages of the product lifecycle
For example, an engineering BOM, a production BOM, and a subcontracting BOM.
Copy existing Manufacturing Routings and create new routings
Designate a default BOM for an assembly, or select an assembly default BOM for a location
For example, a bicycle assembly produced in Canada uses BOM CA. When the company starts producing the same bicycle in the U.S., the system uses BOM U.S.
Define yield at the component level on the BOM revision record
Component yield enables you to account for material component loss during ordering and planning.
Create multiple revisions of a BOM with different effective start and end dates
