Bill of Materials 101
Bill of Material (BoM) software is a method used to record the components required to create a manufactured product. A BoM usually contains information about each individual component, including the quantity required and the cost. A BoM can be a simple affair, containing a simple list of parts, or for more complex manufacturing situations it can be structured as a multi-stage BoM (which can also be known as an "exploded" or "indented" BoM).
Having an accurate Bill of Material can be incredibly helpful for small manufacturing businesses because it allows them to keep track of their raw materials and components and understand exactly what they need in order to build items efficiently. By having an up-to-date BoM, manufacturers can avoid ordering too many or too few components which can add unnecessary costs and disrupt production schedules. Additionally, BoMs help companies plan ahead for future projects by allowing them to quickly see how much material they will need for specific products or services.
