Bill Of Material (also known as product recipe) is a list of ingredients (materials and subassemblies) and the quantities you use in order to create your product. Recipes can be created for products and their variations. You can create a specific recipe for each product variant.
You can add both materials and subassemblies to your Product Recipes. In Brahmin Solutions, subassemblies are products, not materials. Each product can be a subassembly and also sold to customers simultaneously. There is no difference between products and subassemblies in Brahmin Solutions.
Why use a bill of materials?
Automatic inventory adjustments - Brahmin Solutions will make automatic inventory adjustments based on the list of ingredients for a product (which is based on the Product Recipe by default) when you create and complete Manufacturing Orders.
Manufacturing cost calculations for your products - the cost of your product includes materials and subassemblies cost, which is calculated based on the quantity used and the Average Cost of the ingredient in stock. The other main part of the manufacturing cost comes from your Production Operations.
Checking the availability of materials for Manufacturing Orders - when creating Manufacturing Orders, you can immediately see whether the required materials and subassemblies are available in stock. If ingredients are not available, you can conveniently create relevant Purchase Orders for materials or Manufacturing Orders for subassemblies.
