Project BOMs

Project BOMs is part of the Project module and is used to attach bills of materials (BOMs) to the project and select the lines that are required to be reserved or purchased. Standard BOMs or project BOMs can be used. BOMs can be edited as long as they are used on one project only, to ensure that one project does not alter bills of materials on other projects.
