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 Mascidon indented BOM includes the 'resources' associated with a BOM.


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 to traverse the BOM upwards or downwards provides flexibility in reporting
  • An example of using the BOM enhancements to monitor the BOM approval  process is provided.
  • An example of using the BOM queries to check for availability of stock to meet sales quote or sales order requirements is included.
  • A Boyum version as well as an SAP query version is available.


This add-on is available as SAP queries or implemented using Boyum.
