Introduction

This page outlines the use of Bill of Material (BOM) data in BlueWorx.

Business and SAP Context

BlueWorx supports Material BOMs, Functional Location BOMs and Equipment BoMs. BOM's can be used for:

  • Selection and assignment of assembly to Work Orders and Notifications
  • Ordering of stock items (SAP Material Reservations) against the Work Order
  • Ordering of non stock items (SAP Requisitions) against the Work Order

Note that BlueWorx does not support SAP configurable nor alternative BOM's.

Important Information

BOM functionality was delivered in Support Pack 4. The BOM data is taken to the device for all the Technical Objects for device Work Orders. With the required access and when online you can refresh the FL or Equipment record to retrieve BOM data for asset not included in Work Orders or Notifications.
