This report displays a requirement calculation for a BOM so that you can see which BOM components need to be purchased during various periods. The requirement calculation is based on the BOM journal lines that have been created. For each line, the program uses the BOM Component table to find out which and how many items will be used to produce the BOM. Various information, such as inventory and quantity on order, is shown for each item.
For every BOM component (included in the BOM), you can see the orders from customers and the quantity that has been ordered from vendors as well as the available inventory. The list is divided into six columns that each cover a specific period. There are also columns with figures for the periods before and after the six periods. The report can be used for purchase planning, inventory maintenance and similar analyses.
You can define what is included in the report by setting filters. You can set additional fields on the BOM Journal Line tab by clicking the Field field, then clicking the AssistButton that appears to the right.
