Understanding Oracle Bill Of Materials (BOM

BOM Overview: A bill of material is a list or Items associated with a parent Item, such as an assembly, and information about how each item relates to the parent item. # A single level BOM consists of one parent Item and its immediate component Items # Multilevel BOMs are displayed by linking together single level BOMs stored in the system # A subassembly is both a parent and a component # All items in a BOM model, including the parent Item being configured, must be defined in the Item Master and enabled in the Inventory Organization where BOM Model is created # A BOM Model can be shared among other Inventory Organizations by creating common bills # After a valid combination of options is selected from BOM Model, a Standard BOM is created to guide manufacturing planning and execution # Repetitive combinations of option selections can be stored and retrieved as preconfigured Items BOM Types: 1. 2. 3. 4. Standard Bill Model Bill Option Class Planning Bill

BOM Models: •Create Model bills to represent products and service that allow user -selected options: # Option Classes are groups of optional items # Optional Items # Required Items •Model bills and Option Class bills of material can include: # Stock Items # Assemble-to-Order Models # Mandatory and Optional Components PTO and ATO BOM Models: •ATO BOM Models:

•Oracle Configurator honors these rules as well as the rules defined using Oracle Configurator Developer Option Classes: Option Class is an element of a Configuration Model. The end user typically selects one or more options from each Option Class during runtime to create a valid configuration.The purpose of Option Classes are to group and prevent viable alternatives. Option Class Selection Rules: BOM Model rules for selecting options from an Option Class during order entry: •Required and Mutually exclusive:You must select one and only one Item in this Option Class .# Represent product models that require assembly “downstream” in Oracle Work In Process # Are assembled using manufacturing work orders that can be costed •PTO BOM Models: # Represent product Models in which included items appear on pick slips and selected when the order ships # Are not costed Configurable PTO and ATO BOM Models: # The inventory Item that represents the top level in your BOM Model must have the BOM Item Type attribute set to Model # PTO and ATO BOM Models can contain Standard Items and Option Classes as components # ATO and PTO BOM Models can also contain other ATO BOM Models as components # An ATO BOM Model cannot contain a PTO BOM Model # A PTO BOM Model can contain a PTO BOM Model Implicit Rules: •Basic rules are included with Oracle Bills of Material: # Optional or Required # Mutually Exclusive # Maximum and Minimum Quantity # Quantity Cascade •These rules provided by Oracle Bills of Material are called Implicit Rules.

or all optional items in this Option Class BOM Example: .•Required:You must select one or more optional items in this Option Class •Optional and Mutually Exclusive:You can select only one optional item in this Option Class •Optional:Select none. some.
