Bills of Materials
Define and control all of the components, child items and raw materials required to assemble or produce a finished product. Add in virtual items such as labour costs and running costs to complete the recipe. The BOM can be included in the MRP and to create standard Production Orders. You can have different types of Bills of Materials.
Production Bill of Materials (BOM) represents a finished product (parent) comprising different inventory component (child components) which are consumed as part of a manufacturing process.
Sales and Assembly BOMs represent a finished product assembled at the sales stage. The finished product is composed of its component items only when the parent product is actually sold. The component items are stored and tracked individually in the warehouse
Template BOM is a bundle of items, where the parent product is the first item on the list. It does not act as a BOM once it is added to the sales document, but rather as a list of items brought together at the same time. You can update the quantity of those items, swap items, or delete them in the BOM or the sales order. The components appear below the parent as a list of items in a sales document. Use the Template BOM when you require flexibility in selecting components for a product.
