Bill of Material Management - BOM

Bill of Material Management (BOM) with caniasERP

caniasERP Bill of Materials Management (BOM) module is used to display and manage the information about the materials used in production. A bill of materials, which is a list of materials, can be considered as (to be added) a recipe defining the hierarchical structures and quantities of semi-products and/or raw materials required to produce a product. This module allows BOMs to be created, copied, modified and controlled.  

With this module, the BOMs can be combined into hierarchical and multi-level BOMs depending on the complexity of the product (the number of semi-products required for its production) to be produced. If there is a common semi-product used in the production of more than one product in the enterprise, a single BOM record can be created for this common semi-product and then be associated with the products to be used. Variant Management enables the materials saved in the system to be differentiated in terms of user-specified properties. For example, one of the variant features of a shirt to be produced can be body size of the shirt, and the options of this feature may be Small, Medium, Large. These variant configurations apply to every module as well as the Bill of Materials Management module. In this way, a large number of features and a large number of options depending on the feature can easily be managed throughout the system with a single material card, BOM and route base data. Options such as length, thickness or volume—which can have different values in each transaction—can also be defined and managed as variants.

BOMs, which are used as reference in the calculation of the semi products and raw material requirements to be determined for Material Requirements Planning module, are also used effectively in processes such as external procurement. In this process, the relevant materials in the BOM can be sent from stock to subcontractors for use.

In conjunction with the Routing Management module, the system creates a production network and displays this network graphically when prompted. Thus, even complex BOMs and routes can be created clearly at different levels. Copying the components of an existing BOM into new BOMs makes workflow easier. Similar materials or structures can be created more easily by referring to the defined BOMs.
The following graph shows the interaction between the Bill of Materials Management and the other modules in the system.

Validity Definition
Each BOM created in the Bill of Materials Management Module is valid under the conditions defined for it. For example, the components that make up the product are required to be used according to (depending on) the batch size to which the product is to be produced. Thus, various components can be used for different production batches. Time limits can be made to define the desired structures for specific periods. There may be more than one way of production of a manufactured product within an enterprise. These different types of production can be defined in the system as production alternatives.

The BOM can be used not only for production, but also for sales. The product sets, which are formed by combining more than one product, can be defined as BOMs; They can be sold by entering only the BOM title. Even after the start of production, the relevant BOMs can be changed and these changes can be reflected in open production orders. Thus, product design and production processes can be executed together, if desired.

Audit Down to the Lowest Level
A wide range of configuration options in the BOM Management Module is not limited to only the level of the BOM. In contrast, configurations can be maintained up to each component level. Item types that can be defined freely allow the user to manage each material individually. The components in a BOM that will be used in production and design should have different properties. Thanks to the predefined component properties specified on the module, the separation of these components can be easily done when configuring a BOM. It is possible to define the input quantity for each component. For example, for each X product quantity unit, the Y component quantity unit is required. The units do not have to be the same here. There is also the option to determine the amount of consumption for the components according to the defined formulas. Flexibility in component management also applies to by-products that may occur during production. By-products may be identical or completely different to the product, and cost sharing features can be determined accordingly.

Comprehensible Structure - Easy To Use
Bill of Material Management module is a highly effective tool for working comfortably on complex structures within production. Ergonomic applications with important functions provide ease of use and advantages. Bulk change of components in multiple BOMs or all BOMs, presence of components in all or department specific BOMs, or addition of new components to the desired data records are only a few of these advantages.

The open structure of the caniasERP system also enables communication with external systems (e.g. a CAD software). Thus, BOMs and even materials can be created and modified in an external system. This interaction is done through the Electronic Data Interchange module.

The Bill of Material Management module, which can be integrated with other processes in the caniasERP system, plays a key role in basic manufacturing processes with integration to other production modules such as Routing Management and Production Management; It also creates the basis for Material Requirements Planning, Sales Management, Purchase Management, Inventory Management and Standard Cost Management modules.
