Concepts And Functionalities Of Production BOM In Navision

Production BOM In Dynamics NAV

Production BOM contains the list of items needed to make an item. The items used as input are known as components while the output item could be a finished good or a sub assembly (to be used an component for to produce another item).Single-level production BOM means all components used are purchased. Multi-level production BOM consist of one or more sub assembly as the components. Navision can support up to 50 levels BOM.
  • BOM is a document to describes the components used to manufacture a product.
  • BOM in Navision can contains multiple levels. The maximum level in Navision is 50
  • BOM can only be defined after all components (items) have been created in Navision.

BOM Status

In the Production Header, you can set the status for a BOM. There are 4 BOM status in Navision Production BOM.

  2. Certified – After you have confirm with the content of the BOM, you have to change the status to Certified. Only certified BOM can be used in Production Planning. Content in certified BOM cannot be changed. Usually, a new version of BOM will be created if changes are needed on the components.
