A BOM is a list of components or list of ingredients used for producing a product. Once a BOM is created, it can be used as a template for making production jobs quickly and easily.
BOMs also allow the quick calculation of component materials based on the number of items planned for production.
In Cin7 a BOM can be used for any industry where components or ingredients are used to produce finished goods.
A template BOM can be created and saved against a product. It is only possible to have one BOM assigned to each product.
Before creating a BOM, make sure you have:
To create a BOM:
Only enter component products in light blue rows, with the Use label. Entering components on white lines will mean the components are not included in the template. To insert additional light blue lines, click in the Format column and select Insert Row Below.
Once a BOM has been created, it can be changed, but cannot be deleted.
To edit a BOM that you have made:
If you edit the BOM for a product with multiple product options, each option will appear as a finished product line in the BOM. You will need to create a new BOM for each product option.
Absolutely, take a look at Importing BOMs.
Create a BOM for each sub-component separately, and then create a BOM for your finished product with those sub-components as components.
We really appreciate your feedback.
