A bill of material (BOM) for a make to order or assemble to order product is often designed for a quantity one. There are products where the capacity or material is better utilized when we produce them in batches of a certain quantity. In that case we design the BOM for that batch quantity. A new enhancement for Exact for Manufacturing supports the shop order generation in a batch environment.
