A bill of materials or product structure (sometimes bill of material, BOM or associated list) is a list of the raw materials, sub-assemblies, intermediate assemblies, sub-components, parts and the quantities of each needed to manufacture an end product.

Datamoto allows you to create BoM very easily. In the Inventory page, you can click BoM to add new BoM. You can add any number of items from the inventory along with quantity as well as note (such as instruction for assembly). Once you create the BoM, you can assign the BoM to an item (aka. asset) in the inventory. When you click a item which has already assigned BoM, you can generate items (add quantity) by simply clicking on “Add Qty Using BoM”. It will add the quantity to the item but will deduct the quantity from the BoM items.

You can generate work order from the sales order. If an item in the sales order has a link to a BoM, then the work order will pull the BoM information for the item and put in the work order. This helps manufacturing or assembly technician to have a complete information of the work order.
