How to create assembly bill of materials (bom) in microsoft dynamics 365 business central

Packing a group of items for sale is a common process for manufacturers and distributors. Whether these are items manufactured in-house and sold as both discreet items, as well as packaged sets; or if raw materials are manufactured by a third party and then combined for sale, the process below walks through the creation of a bill of materials which directs employees on the contents to assemble.

Whether your assembly process contains several items, or just a few, it can be a complex process to create and manage assembly orders – the process to manage the conversion of multiple components to create a finished good. To simplify the items and resources required to put together the finished good, you must create an assembly bill of materials (BOM). I’ll be sharing with you how to create an (BOM) in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

To begin the creation of the Bill of Materials in Dynamics 365 Business Central, navigate to your item list. Click on the search icon and enter Items. Select the related link.

Locate and highlight the finished good in your item list where you wish to add an Assembly BOM.  Select Manage, then Edit.

From the Navigate tab, select the Bill of Materials dropdown & select Assembly -> Assembly BOM.

In the Assembly BOM screen, under the Type column, choose Item (for example, a component in inventory) or Resource (for example, labor).

In the No. column, select the component or resource from the drop-down list.  The Description will auto-populate.

Tab to the Quantity Per field and enter the quantity needed for the assembly.

Continue to populate each line with the necessary items and resources until your Assembly BOM is complete.  Select the back arrow to return to the item card.

Back in the item list, you will notice the Assembly BOM column will now read Yes on this item.  You may drill down on this field for a quick view of your Assembly BOM.
