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

  • Revision Control
  • Effectivity/Expiration Dates
  • Production Steps
  • Phantoms
  • Reference Designators
  • Flexible Copy BOM
  • Unlimited Fixed and Variable Overhead Costs
  • BOM Cost Rollup

Revision Control

Maintain a complete revision history of BOM/routing. Save and view multiple revisions – past, present, and future – as well as the reason for the revision. Group change requests for approval processes, as well as display them in bill-of-material comparisons.

Effectivity/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.


Use phantom items to simplify the maintenance of related groups of parts and materials for 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.

Flexible Copy BOM

Copy an existing BOM/routing to a different item as an alternate BOM/routing or for easy setup for a new, similar item.

Unlimited Fixed and Variable Overhead Costs

Define unlimited fixed and variable overhead costs by operation or work center.

BOM Cost Rollup

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