Bill of Materials Management

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 you can create a bill of materials (BOM) and its different versions.

To create a BOM in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012:

Step 1: Click: Inventory and warehouse management > Common > Bill of materials.

Step 2: Create a new BOM.

Step 3: Enter information to identify the BOM (Name, Site, Item group).

If a site that is set on the customer's form coincides with the one set for a BOM, then this BOM will be shown to a customer in the webshop. If you leave the Site field for a BOM blank, the BOM is valid for all sites.

Step 4: Click Lines to open the BOM line form where you can set the BOM components.

Step 5: Select the item numbers to create additional BOM lines. Make sure that the BOM consists of the correct set of items and their quantity.

Step 6: On the Bill of materials form click Approve.

Step 7: On the Approve bill of materials form select an employee by whom the BOM will be approved.

You can also create different versions of an existing BOM. To do this:

Step 1: In the Versions grid create a new line.

Step 2: Select the relevant item number.

Step 3: Click Approve to approve the BOM version.

Step 4: Click Activation to make the BOM version active.

A bill of materials can be also made visible/ invisible just like a regular product. In the Released products table locate the necessary BOM item and under the Sell FastTab use the Visible in webshop check box. If you make the BOM item invisible, the items inside BOM still remain visible.
