Update Bill of Materials

There may be scenarios where during the production process it is identified that there is an issue with the way the BOM is setup, or that the production process has changed for a specific works order and that you would like to base future production on that way of working. You can now update a BOM from a Works Order, allowing you to quickly revise a BOM based on a production works order.

To update a BOM from a works order, go to Tools > Works Orders > Update BOM.

If you do not have access to this function it will be greyed out on the menu.

On the screen that opens, select the Works Order you wish to update the BOM for. Once selected, the relevant Stock Code & Description will appear.

To update the BOM, press OK and select Yes on the confirmation question.

Once the update has finished, you will see an ‘Update Complete’ message on screen.
