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.
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.
Connect materials, work instructions and overhead costs to an operation to accommodate time-phased release of materials.
Multiple levels of bills of material for both engineering and costed views of the entire product structure.
Calculate costs at average, standard and actual cost. Add tooling costs and overhead costs, both fixed and variable.
Control material planning and usage according to effectivity dates for phase-in and phase-out of content changes.
Document the entire process using detailed work instructions and standard note capability for each process step.
Allows components to be displayed where they are used on a single or multi-level bill of material.
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.
Relate BOM component parts to the drawing’s part numbers to avoid confusion and duplicate entry in the bill of material.
Manage multiple sites with different or alternate BOM/Routing definitions for each location.
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.
Copy existing BOM/routing definitions to create alternate BOM/routings or new items.
Replace a component with a different component on individual or all bills of material.
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.
Maintain a complete revision history of BOM/routing. Save and view multiple revisions – past, present, and future – and the reason for the revision.
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.
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.
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.
