Production/Assembly BOM Question

  • Production/Assembly BOM Question

    Posted by Jonathan Delfraisse on May 21, 2024 at 3:06 pm

    I am trying to get my company to a more out of the box experience with NAV. I am looking to start that off with creation of BOM. Let’s say my item is Pepsi. And I want to put that in a 16oz bottle. So I would have for each 16 oz of soda, 1 bottle, 1 cap, 1 label. But I also want to include a 24 bottle container (case) and a pallet that can hold 96 cases. My question is, is it possible for the BOM to say, the case max number of bottle is 24, so if the customer wants 30 bottles, it would put 30 bottles, 30 caps, 30 labels, 2 cases, and 1 pallet. My goal is to have a user enter the number of bottles they want and it calculate the cost based on that. (NAV 14)

    Hey Jonathan, thanks for your question. We have a similar situation where we produce medical sensors. These sensors are packaged into boxes of 10, and then those boxes are packaged into cases of 80. Due to quality and manufacturing process requirements for traceability to each box of 10 (per the FDA), we have to treat these as different production orders.

    We batch produce individual sensors, and place them into inventory as finished goods. When an order comes in, we create another production order to package the sensors accordingly, and then ship them out.

    I hope this helps. Maybe @davidwiser or @chinsky can chime in if there’s a better way.

    Yes, what you describe is possible. Generally, you would create the BOM for one bottle. Then, the production order could be for the number of bottles/cases/pallets you want to produce. The production order will scale up the raw material quantities needed to meet the desired output.

    Reach out if you want to discuss further. Also, Steve Chinsky and I are teaching a manufacturing academy class on manufacturing before Summit in October if you want to sign up for that.
