A bill of materials – BOM is used for communication between manufacturing partners or confined to a single manufacturing plant. A bill of materials or product structure is a list of the raw materials, sub-assemblies, intermediate assemblies, sub-components, parts, and the quantities of each needed to manufacture an end product.

BOM can define products as they are designed (engineering bill of materials), as they are ordered (sales bill of materials), as they are built (manufacturing bill of materials), or as they are maintained (service bill of materials). The different types depend on the business need and use for which they are intended. In process industries, the BOM is also known as the formula, recipe, or ingredients list.

As a BOM is important, it’s complexity increase exponentially with a huge amount of levels and attribute data. BOM viewer is a tool that should help make the planner’s life easier by making this complex tree in more usable visualization.
