In previous topics I described the way of BOM creation using 2 options:
- BOM and BOM version feature on the Released product D365: How to create a BOM using BOM and BOM version feature
- BOM version feature on the Released product D365: How to create a BOM using BOM version feature
In this topic I am going to describe another option is BOM creation using Bill of material form.
First time when I tried to create the BOM, I opened Bill of material form and I was totally confused. So I decided to guide you how to work with this form
We will create BOM and its components in the following structure:
And first step will be creation of Item1, Item2 and Item3.
Navigate to Production information management > Products > Released products
Create new items by clicking New button and populating mandatory fields.
The next step will be creation of BOM1 and BOM2.
Navigate to Product information management > Bill of materials and formulas > Bill of materials.
Specify Name, Site and Item group.
In the Item number field select the component.
Switch to the header view and select BOM2 in the BOM version section.
I have typed BOM2 item number, and I haven’t seen BOM2 available in the list.
This happens because Default order type on the BOM2 is Purchase order. It should be Production. In order to change it, go to Product information management > Products > Released products > Manage inventory tab > Default order settings.
Click Edit and change Default order type.
Go back and check lookup again.
Click on Approval button.
Then on the heard view, approve and activate BOM version.
Once you approve the BOM version, you can check the Designer.
Open Designer form and check the structure of the BOM.
Repeat the steps above for BOM1.
