Ensure that you have the right bill-of-materials and processes to make the right products.
Bill of Material (BOM) is a base functionality of setting up production module of an ERP system. A manufactured item consists of components, which are used to build the product through production operation(s). The main use of BOM is to define product structure of a manufactured end item.
Routing is another important base of production module, which defines the method of manufacturing. Method or route to be followed for manufacturing a product is a prerequisite for setting up production module. With EtomPlan Engineering, you can create and maintain a master list of products and purchased materials, including bills of materials (BOMs), material properties and specifications that allow procurement exactly as per requirement. You can create and maintain standard processes and routings, including multi-out routings. The routing information includes baseline production data needed to track production performance and incentive. EtomPlan has built-in features for handling ETO Manufacturing out-of-the-box. The master lists can be used to create customer order specific BOM, Routing and Incentive baseline data. EtomPlan Engineering allows creation of ETO Items, which are work-order specific variants of the same item master. This variant can have its own name, a different relationship between its dual units, and is managed separately in the Inventory module.
Classic Multi Level BOM
EtomPlan features another method for creation of BOM – head wise material list. In this feature, you can create material heads and pre-define their positions with respect to the process-material tree. This is usually a one-time activity during creation of a new product line. Then, materials are added against a material head, without the end-user having to worry about their position in the hierarchy. EtomPlan Engineering creates the multi-level BOM automatically using the pre-defined process-head information.
EtomPlan Engineering allows creation of a special costing bill-of-material, which is especially helpful for estimation and pricing during enquiry and quotation phase. In this feature, all materials are mapped to a costing object where cost is definable in Purchase module. A costing BOM can be entered against a specific enquiry or order and the system then uses this mapping to compute the total input material cost.
