Bills of Material are created and edited using the Bill Of Materials Maintenance program. This program allows you to define the item to be built and the component items and quantities required to build it. The BOM line item information is entered with the quantity required to build 1 of the top level parts. This BOM information is then extended as required when shop orders or other transactions are processed using the BOM.
The Bill of Materials Maintenance program also allows you to view and edit the comments that are stored for the top level and component items at the inventory level or to create comments specific to the BOM. These Inventory and BOM comments are available at the Inventory Item, BOM or at the Shop Order Level.
