In SAP you can create such type of a product which is called Bill of Materials (BOM). It refers to the complex component structure, basically this is the list of materials or components which is used to build the final product and from which this product actually consists. For example, a customer is looking for a computer and he/she wants to see the list of hardware the computer consists of. The ERP system can store a lot of different spare parts that are used to manufacture a product which are actually not intended to sell. These spare parts can be also a part of the complex product structure.

In the Material BOM table you can define from which components and their quantity the BOM product consists of.

In the web store a customer will see a link View package contents on the product details page. Clicking on this link opens the list of BOM components.
