BOM Lines

BOM Lines is a sub module to the module Bill Of Materials and is used to edit the BOM lines of a BOM. A BOM is read-only, if it is used on at least one project, to ensure that BOMs are not edited once consumed by projects. If the BOM is used on one project only, it can however be edited by opening that project and opening BOM lines from the module Project BOM Lines.

The Up and Down buttons can be used to set the order of BOM lines.



Actions shows functions for the module BOM Lines:


Add Article: Inserts a new article as a new BOM line, based on a search in Article Templates, Stock, Articles and Project Articles. When selecting a new article, static properties are automatically filled in and dynamic properties must be entered. To ease the search, articles can be filtered on their properties, as shown below. As property values are selected, the list is narrowed to only articles matching all property values. When an article is selected in the bottom list and OK is clicked, the article is inserted as a new BOM line.


Add BOM: Inserts another BOM as a new line, making the added BOM a sub-BOM to the current BOM. As with inserting articles, BOMs can be located by filtering property values. When the desired BOM is located, clicking OK will insert the BOM as a new BOM line.


Sub BOM Lines: Can be used when a sub-BOM is selected and will open a new BOM lines window with the BOM lines of the sub-BOM.

Print BOM: Prints the BOM to the default printer.

Preview BOM: Opens the print preview window, documented on a separate page here.
