Essential for Assembly, Distribution and Manufacturing Businesses

The Bill of Materials is essential in assembly, distribution and manufacturing businesses. Businesses need to have a "parts list" in order to put together certain items like computers, for example. With Stream V the Bill of Materials Module has everything you need to efficiently run your assembly & discrete manufacturing processes.

A Bill of Materials inventory list is used by the Shop Floor and the Kitting systems and they define how the items that you build or kit in-house are put together (they list components and quantities required to create a top level item). You can store multiple bills of materials for each item that can be built. Unique identification numbers are automatically assigned.The BOM is integrated into the inventory software so that efficiency turns into profitability.
