When the Comments Button is pressed in the Bill of Materials Line Lookup Program, the system displays the Comment Detail Panel and it loads the panel with the BOM comment that has been created for the selected bill of materials line item. The Comment Detail Panel also displays any BOM comment that has been created for the Bill of Materials Header that the BOM line is included in. The BOM Header Comment is displayed in the top section of the Comment Detail Panel and the Line Item Comment is displayed in the lower section of the panel.
BOM comments are notes that are maintained at the Bill of Materials Level and that are specific to a BOM (a pre-defined method for building a specific item number). Bill of Materials comments are supported for both the top level and component items in each Bill of Materials. The Comments for a specific Bill of Materials are available from the BOM or from any shop order header or line item that was created using the BOM.
Note: The Shop Floor System allows you to access the Inventory, Bill of Materials or Shop Order Comments for a given component or top level item from inside the Bill of Materials and the Shop Order Entry program and it also automatically prints these comments on the shop order documents produced by the system.
Please also Note: Your ability to view, edit or create certain types of comment records can be restricted based on system security and parameter settings
