Uniconta operates with two kinds of BOMs. BOMs and Production BOMs.
This article describes BOMs and then production BOMs in turn.
Before BOMs can be used both ‘Inventory’ and ‘BOM’ must be selected under Company/Maintenance/Configure application functionality, as shown in the screenshot above.
It is then possible to create a BOM and use the BOM in a sales order.
Creating a BOM
Use the navigation panel to go to Inventory/Items and add an item using the ‘Add item’ button in the toolbar/ribbon, as shown in the screenshot below.
(Click on screenshot to enlarge).
Select BOM as the ‘Item Type’.
Note that the prices for this item/BOM are for the whole item. Sales from this BOM will result in the whole item and cost price being deducted from the BOM.
If additional items are included in the sale of the BOM, these items should be added using the ‘BOM in Item’ button in the toolbar/ribbon.
BOM. Cost of lines.
If ’BOM. Cost of lines.’ is checked off in the inventory item card then the cost price of the BOM will be calculated as the sum of all the items included in the BOM.
For example, if a BOM is a set of garden furniture with one table and four chairs, the cost price of the set is the sum of the cost price of the table and four chairs.
If this selection is not made on the item card, then the collective cost price is not calculated.
For example, if a BOM is made up of a bottle of wine, an alcohol charge and shipping, then use would not want the cost price to be calculated as sum of the wine and these two charges.
Item included in the BOM
If this box is not checked in the item card, then the BOM will be set up as a list of items rather than a set.
For example, if a set of garden furniture (including a table and four chairs) is sold, then it will be deduced from the warehouse as four chairs and a table, rather than one set of garden furniture.
If, however a check mark placed here in the item card, then this BOM item is included in the BOM.
The BOM button
Clicking on the BOM button in the toolbar/ribbon under Inventory/Items allows the user to see what the BOM item contains, where it is used and which items are reported as finished.
