Click Inventory management > Common > Bills of materials. Click Lines. Click Functions, and then click Copy.

Use this form to select a bill of materials (BOM) or route in either base data or production and make a copy of it. You can define where you want to place the copy and whether you want the copy to be added to the new location or to replace existing lines in the new location.

NoteNote

Please note the following conditions when you use multiple sites:

  • When you copy an existing BOM to a different site, the warehouse on the BOM lines is cleared. However, if the site that you copy from and the site that you copy to are the same, the warehouse is not cleared.

  • When you copy an existing route to a different site, the operations resource on the route lines is cleared, and the default operations resources for the route relations are also cleared.
