BOM Enhancements

The BOM reporting within SAP B1 is limited to a single indented report.  This add-on enhances the user ability to display or report on a top to bottom (indented) or bottom to top (where used) view of any bill of materials.  The reporting can include or exclude the 'resources'.


The where used functionality is essential to capital equipment manufacturers with large, multi-level BOMs. Mascidon has added several key functions to the basic BOM:


  • An indented 'Where Used' capability provides a reverse BOM look at where components or raw materials are used.
    • Useful for determining potential upstream problems when raw material or component defects are found
  • An indented BOM using a SQL query creates BOM reports that at a user's discretion include on hand, engineering revision, etc. 
    • Provides indented view of requirements for a sales order
    • Provides indented view of requirements for an MRP forecast
  • Use of queries and stored procedures to traverse the BOM upwards or downwards provides flexibility in reporting


This add-on is available as SAP queries, in conjunction with Right Click, and implemented with Boyum.

The query portion of this add-on is available as SAP queries, as Boyum buttons and functions, or as Right Click query access functions.
