To configure a multilevel BOM requiring production in multiple sites, the following conditions must be true:

  • A product model exists. For more information, see Create a product model.

  • Two production sites are set up.

  • The production warehouse assigned to the top level item is replenished by the production warehouse.

  • A product model for the top level item creates BOM and route versions at one site.

  • Subassembly product models create BOM and route versions at a different site than the top level model.

Use the Product models form to configure a multilevel BOM that requires production in multiple sites.

  2. Select the appropriate product model number and then click Product model.

  3. Click the System tab.

  4. Select Site ID in the System variable field to create the site ID system variable.

  5. Create a code that assigns the site ID system modeling variable to the product models of top-level item and subassemblies to create the BOM and route lines at different sites.

    For more information, see Insert a node in the modeling tree.

  6. Add BOM lines to the product model.

    For more information, see Insert a node in the modeling tree.

    The BOM lines are added to the BOM version assigned to the site ID identified by the site ID system variable.
