Printing a Bill-of-Materials (BOM) or Routing

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

The Bill-of-Materials (BOM) of Exact Online Manufacturing specifies the material requirements for a manufactured product. Together with the routing file, which specifies the manufacturing processes required, the BOM is the blueprint for the shop order. In response to customer demand, we are now releasing a print option on the BOM version screen.

BOM and Routing file

The BOM version screen has been enhanced with a Print button, providing options to print either the bill-of-materials or the routing file. By choosing for printing, a screen report will be displayed that can be despatched to a printer or exported to Excel via the (right-upper corner) Customize icon.

These reporting options are provided for the manufactured bill-of-materials only, not for the assembled item bill-of-materials.

Report button on Maintenance | Materials and Maintenance | Routing

On the screens that display details of the BOM version (Maintenance | Materials and Maintenance | Routing), a Report button has been added that provides direct access to the screen report of the previous section (including options to print or export to Excel).

Solution feedback

This feature has been developed in response to solution feedback by our customers and partners. By providing feedback our customers co-create Exact Online Manufacturing together with Exact. The voice of the customer serves as our prime input to prioritize new features. Your idea could be best submitted via our support department.

The print BOM will become available for all manufacturing customers in the coming weeks.
