Routing and BOM Overview

Easy overview showing Routing and BOM with versions

What is Routing BOM?

With a shortcut key from the Item card, the active Routing and the active BOM is displayed in an intuitive manner with respect to Routing Link codes and Material Sorting in one simple overview.

At the top you find a display of the materials to be picked before the first operation typically by warehouse employees. Next the operations in the routing are displayed so that the materials with a routing link code are displayed under the relevant operation.

Next, the operations in the routing are displayed so that materials with a routing link code are displayed under the respective operation.

nr 2 kernefunktioner

Material Sorting

It is possible to change the order of the components on the BOM, even within the same Operation.

This is used if the components for the routing step should be taken in a special order and the assembler must be informed of this order. For example, if many components are used for an assembly operation.

Quick change of Status

Status of the Routing and versions of the BOM can be changed with one click so you can edit the Routing and BOM version directly.

When you leave the window, you will be asked if you wish to approve the Routing and BOM again, so you do not forget this and have resulting planning errors.

nr 4 kernefunktioner

Quick use of the routing link

Create a routing link code between a component and an operation by simply writing the operation number in the column “operation number” in the component line.

This will automatically create a routing link code that links the two together so that the component is first committed to this operation.
