(PM) Production BOM (form) [AX 2012]

Updated: November 8, 2012

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2

Click Production control > Common > Production orders > All production orders. Select a production order, and then, on the Action Pane, click BOM.

Use this form to create and manage bills of materials (BOMs) for productions. A production BOM is a list of the materials that are required to produce an item in production.

Materials are described by using item numbers, consumption, and a range of other data that is used in production. When you create a production order for a selected item, a copy of the BOM for that item is automatically added to the production BOM from the base data. If the item does not have a BOM, and no number is assigned when the production order is created, the production BOM is still created, but it is blank.

You can change, insert, or delete lines without affecting related BOMs in the base data. You can also copy other BOMs into a production BOM. Changes can be made to production BOMs at any point in the production sequence, up through the Start status. However, after production is started, changes can no longer be made.

NoteNote

If you make changes that affect cost estimation or job scheduling, you must run Estimation, Operation scheduling, or Job scheduling again before you continue.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.

NoteNote

The information is specific to Process manufacturing production and logistics.

Open a menu that contains the following items:

  • Adjustment principle – Open the Adjustment principle form, where you can set the properties for an Active ingredient type item. This button is available for active ingredient types only if the Difference additive option is selected in the Adjustment principle field and the properties are not defined.

  • Compensation principle – Open the Compensation principle form, where you can set the properties for a Compensating ingredient type item. This button is available for compensating ingredient types only if the Difference additive option is selected in the Compensation principle field and the properties are not defined.

Field

Description

Ingredient type

Select one of the following options to determine the adjustments that are made during the production of the item, based on the type of the ingredient:

  • None ─ The default value for items that have no fixed base attribute specified. You can also select this value for an item that has a fixed base attribute.

  • Active ─ The ingredient that is specified for an adjustment or compensation that is calculated based on the attribute of the active ingredient or raw material.

    NoteNote

    This is the default value for items that have a fixed base attribute specified. You can also select None for these items.

  • Compensating ─ The ingredient that is specified for compensation to be calculated to either increase or decrease the estimated consumption of the raw material, based on an attribute of another raw material.

    NoteNote

    You cannot select this value if the item has a base attribute that is specified as fixed.

  • Filler ─ The ingredient that is specified for an adjustment to be calculated based on the consumption of a fill contributor ingredient or raw material.

    NoteNote

    You cannot select this value if the item has a base attribute that is specified as fixed.
