You can view the bill of material (BOM) versions and their related BOM lines.
View the bill of materials (BOM) versions that are associated with the item in the Item form. You can link new BOM versions and edit existing ones. In addition to the BOM number and Name, the window shows the date interval for which the version is valid. A check in the Active field indicates that the BOM is active. A check in the Approved field indicates that the BOM has been approved. The Approved by field shows who approved it. You can mark more than one BOM version as active, if the valid periods do not overlap.
To create a new BOM, click Create BOM.
You can view the BOM lines that make up the BOM. You can create and modify the lines. You must specify the Item number, Quantity, and a sales unit. Remember that a BOM might be associated with more than one BOM item, which means that changes here might affect other BOM items. In the BOM form, you can see which BOM items are associated with a BOM.
