A Bill of Materials (BOM) is an integral component of the manufacturing process for the process manufacturing industries, and is used to link the formula with the finished goods or the intermediates stored in the inventory. Such is its importance that any slight inaccuracy in BOM can have consequences ranging from manufacturing delays, to the unit coming to a complete standstill. A BOM includes specific instructions on how to assemble the product right from conception through to the finished product ready to be shipped – including all the packaging and instruction, materials etc.
A BOM, basically, is a list of the raw materials, sub-assemblies, intermediate assemblies, sub-components, parts, and the quantities of each needed to manufacture an end product. A structured list of all the components that make up a product or assembly, it is required to define how an item is manufactured from top to bottom. The list has details of the material number of each component, along with the quantity and unit of measure. Also, the components can either be raw materials, semi-finished products, or ingredients.
