The BOM versions configuration key controls access to bill of material (BOM) forms and functions when you work with BOM versions. BOM versions contain a list of items that make up an assembly, and are used in Inventory management.

If this key is enabled, you can do the following:

  • Use the same BOM for several item numbers

  • Attach more than one BOM to an item

  • Track changes in the BOM by creating new versions

  • Produce an item using a specific BOM

If this key is disabled, you cannot assign an item to a BOM

You can enable or disable this key in the License configuration form.

The following forms are available when the configuration key is enabled.
