Description

Bill Of Materials (BOM), like AutoBuild information, is the list of items required to build a new inventory (Assembled) item.

For example, the Bill Of Materials (BOM) for a Café Latte would be Coffee, Water, Milk, and Sugar.

Typically the BOM does not vary and is expressed in the quantity required to produce a single built item.
