Bill of Materials (BOM)

A bill of material (BOM) is a list of raw materials, sub-assemblies, or any labor that goes into the manufacturing of an Item. The materials from a BOM get consumed to produce the manufactured good. Use the Bill of Materials page to create and update a BOM for an Item – first, add the item that is being manufactured, then add the Items that are consumed to produce it, then save the BOM.
