ERP Internals/Modules/Manufacturing/Bill of Materials
A bill of materials (BOM) lists the quantity of raw materials and parts that are required to manufacture a product. Often the BOM includes the quantity of operations (cutting, welding, machining, etc.) that is required as well. Each line on a BOM can itself be a BOM.
Normally an Engineering Change Order (ECO) is required to change a BOM. This keeps a complete track of the changes made to the BOM and may come with an effective date.
The BOM sub-module comes with a WHERE-USED functions that lets the user find out when a specific BOM is used in other products and BOMs.
Bill of Materials does not exchange transactions with other modules.
