How to Make BOM (Bill of Material)?

Bill of material is list of raw material and operations through which raw material is processed in process of getting converted into finished good.

So bill of material in made for finished good and sub-assembly (for which separate production order is raised).

For making bill of material for an item, there are pre-requisites.
1. It should be stock item.
2. In item master, following production related values should be selected.
     > Allow bill of material - Yes
     > Allow production order - Yes

To make BOM, go to:

Module >> Production  >> Bill of Material >> New Bill of material

Bill of material form for separate tab for finished goods details, operations and finally materials detail.
