Bill of Materials and Routing

Create, maintain, and control master data definitions of products and processes with convenient one-screen maintenance access using the Bill of Material (BOM)/Routing module, part of the Acumatica Manufacturing Edition.

Improve Scheduling, Costing, and Material Planning with Accurate Bill of Material and Routing Standards

Inaccurate bill of material and routing definitions disrupt production schedules, creates cost variances, and wreak havoc on material plans.

Conversely, accurate and well-defined bill of materials improves production scheduling for maximized throughoutput and capacity utilization. Costs align to estimates and materials are available for production reducing costly rush orders and lost time waiting for parts to arrive.

Key Benefits of Manufacturing BOM and Routing Software for Your Company

  • Integrated Manufacturing BOM/Routing

    Connect materials, work instructions and overhead costs to an operation to accommodate time-phased release of materials.

  • Multi-level BOM/Routing

    Multiple levels of bills of material for both engineering and costed views of the entire product structure.

  • Multiple Costing Methods and Capabilities

    Calculate costs at average, standard and actual cost. Add tooling costs and overhead costs, both fixed and variable.

Important Features of BOM and Routing

Effectivity and Expiration Dates

Control material planning and usage according to effectivity dates for phase-in and phase-out of content changes.

Production Steps

Document the entire process using detailed work instructions and standard note capability for each process step.

Where Used

Allows components to be displayed where they are used on a single or multi-level bill of material.

Phantoms

Use phantom items to simplify structure maintenance for related groups of parts and materials to multiple products. If you create a planning bill of material, your planning and production teams can “skip over” phantoms to plan and allocate components.

Reference Designators

Relate BOM component parts to the drawing’s part numbers to avoid confusion and duplicate entry in the bill of material.

Multiple Sites

Manage multiple sites with different or alternate BOM/Routing definitions for each location.

BOM Cost Rollup

Use flexible cost roll activities for a single or multi-level BOM, by item or site. Costs for the lower-level item “roll” into costs for top-level items. In a standard cost operation, the cost roll updates the pending standard cost for each item in inventory.

Flexible Copy BOM

Copy existing BOM/routing definitions to create alternate BOM/routings or new items.

Mass Change

Replace a component with a different component on individual or all bills of material.

Attributes

Display optional or required values when reporting production. Attributes are available on the bill of material header and operations and can be copied to a production order when the order is created.

Revision Control

Maintain a complete revision history of BOM/routing. Save and view multiple revisions – past, present, and future – and the reason for the revision.

Visual BOM

Manage multi-level bills of material with the Visual BOM editor to identify components at each level in the BOM. The Visual BOM editor provides access to every component and details within a single screen making it easy to edit details.

Optional Engineering Change Control

BOM revisions may be restricted when companies use the optional Acumatica Engineering Change Control application to enforce change control processes and approvals for bill of material and routing changes.

Engineering BOM Synchronization

New part bill of materials and revisions to existing bills of material may be synchronized with the optional Acumatica for Arena Native Connector application. CAD connectors are also available from the marketplace to harmonize bill of material details between Acumatica and third-party product design applications.
