BOM/ Sales BOM - Custom length hose with fix amount of hose connector

Hi All,

I had a scenario where the product can be purchased on 
- N quantity of ‘a item’  which have 
- pre fixed X amount of b-item 
included on every sales/order.

examples.
 - Hydraulic Hose ( 3m long or 5m long both with Hose Clamp on each end)
 - RJ45 Cable ( N meter of CAT6 cable and 2 pcs of RJ45 connectors.)
 - etc.

Now to the question;

How should I approach this scenario using BOM / Sales BOM?

Thx

Hello Nonnatee,

Checking following link to learn more about Sales BOM feature.

https://erpnext.com/user-guide/selling/sales-bill-of-material

Considering your example, Hydraulic Hose and RJ45 Cable will be added as stock item. You will need to add one more non-stock item.

When creating Sales BOM, you should select that non-stock item, and in the item table Hydraulic Hose and RJ45 Cable will be added.

In the sales transactions like Sales Order/Invoice, Delivery Note, you will select non-stock item. Hydraulic Hose and RJ45 Cable will be pulled from Sales BOM and updated into Packing Details table. On submission of stock transactions, stock of Hydraulic Hose and RJ45 Cable will be deducted.

unmair, thank you for your reply. I have a similar issue.

From your answer it sounds like this setup leads to 1 production BOM and 2 sales BOMs in order to sell 2 possible end product variants. Right?

Why would you use a Sale BOM here instead of just using two production BOMs? In the linked example it seems that Sales BOMs are recommended for temporary changes only.

Is there no way to create a variable parameter in the BOM that gets entered as part of a sales order?

Thank you!

Hello Boris,

Sales BOM is mainly to out-stock the accessories items which are sold with main product. For example:

When you sell a PC, stock of laptop bag, user manual, other accessories are to be reduced from your warehouse, you should make Sales BOM for it.

Where as, when you are manufacturing/assembling PC itself, then you should make production BOM for it.
