Create BOMs quickly and easily
The graphical BOM designer is a graphical suite used to create and manage BOMs based on Microsoft drag-and-drop technology. The familiar, user-friendly environment makes it faster and easier to construct BOMs using a graphical tree structure. The BOM designer displays all levels and components of the BOM, and you can drag relevant items from the inventory table into the BOM.
The BOM designer also displays the route for the current BOM so you can drag items from the BOM into the operations on the route where they are to be consumed. This helps to achieve more accurate lead time calculations when scheduling production in Master Planning for Microsoft Dynamics AX
