Bills of material (BoM) and material usage permit the definition of multi-tier bills of materials.
- When building a parent item, the system can enforce the collection of build information relating to the child material consumed
- Provides both traceability information (forwards and backwards) and also precise quantity usage information rather than having to rely on standard quantities from the BoM
- Material traceability can be at the individual serialised item level, or at the batch level
- “Receipt at point of consumption” allows the collection of traceability information relating to purchased or delivered material at the time the material is used without an additional goods-in process
