BOM on the Fly: Part 2 For Dynamics AX

By Nicole Gentz | September 23, 2015

What does BOM on the Fly look like?

This feature has two parts on the sales order:   The ‘Explode BOM’ button and the ‘Create BOM’ button.

1. First you key an item on a sales line.  When the BOM you have keyed is configured for BOMs on the Fly the buttons will become enabled on save of the sales line.

2. Click the Explode BOM button.   This will create a sales line for each of the BOM lines setup for that BOM/configuration combination.
