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: Go to: 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. Close the 'BOM line' form to save changes.

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:

Bill of Materials Management 

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' checkbox. If you make the BOM item invisible, the items inside BOM still remain visible.
