Bill of Materials Comments are comments that can be attached to each Bill of Material Header and Line item record. These comments describe how the items in a specific Bill of Materials should be used or handled during assembly. Bill of Materials Comments are accessible from the Shop Floor programs and are automatically printed on the documents produced by the Shop Floor system.
You may view or add a Bill of Materials Header Comment by pressing the Comment Button in the Standard Toolbar of either the Bill of Materials Management program or the Bill of Materials Line Lookup. You may add Bill of Materials Line Comments by highlighting the appropriate line item in the Bill of Materials Line Lookup program and pressing the Comment Button in that program. The Line Lookup Comment option calls a “two comment object” allows you to view and edit both the comment for the selected bill of materials header and the comment for the selected bill of materials line item. The Bill of Materials Management option allows you to view and edit only the comment for the selected Bill of Materials Header.
