Infor LN & Baan Tip of the Week: The Production Bill of Material – 10.7

The production bill of material is globally specified at the company level. It can be used as a source for the definition of the local material lists, such as:

  • The production model in the repetitive module.
  • The production model in the job shop module.
  • The subcontracting model in the subcontracting module.

The production bill of material can be generated through the engineering bill of material. The new production bill of material differs from the old bill of material:

  • It has a header and a status.
  • It is always revision controlled.
  • The effective dates have been moved from the material lines to the header.
  • The BOM quantity has been moved from item production data to the header.
  • The use up has been moved from alternatives to the material line.
  • The material line excludes logistic data (no warehouse nor routing operation).

The production bill of material is not mandatory.

Production bill of material revisions:
The production bill of material is revision controlled. The objective of the revision is to control the changes to the bill of material over time.

The P-bom includes this revision-related data:

  • Revision number
  • Effective date and Expiry date
  • Status (New, Approved, Expired)
  • Creation date and Created by: user
  • Approval date and Approved by: user
  • Expiry date and Expired by: user
  • Source information
