Because a BOM is simply a characteristic of an item, BOMs can be added to Ascent when adding a new item. This is accomplished by choosing the BOM option under the Item Type data field when adding a new item.
Furthermore, a non-BOM item can be modified into a BOM item by changing the Item Type value to BOM in the Item Master Details screen.
Creating BOM lines through the Item Master screen:
1) From the Item Detail screen for a particular item, click the New button in the BOM Line Items Detail grid. This will generate a new line with the Item Number and Quantity textboxes left blank.
2) Enter the appropriate values for the new BOM Line Item. Both the Item Number and Quantity fields are required. If required, you can hit the search icon to find the appropriate item.
3) Click the “Save” button to save the new BOM Line. Or, click the “New” button to allow entry of another item for this BOM. After entering multiple new lines, or at any time, you can hit the “Save” button and all appropriate edits will be done to ensure that the items entered are on the item master file.
Note: the cost of the Item Master record will be updated with the sum of the BOM lines.
