Bill of Materials (BOM) functions start with Components for Build and Bundle items.
Big Business supports multi-level indented BOM's by managing Components for each. A bike has two wheels. A wheel has twelve spokes. To build a bike, takes 24 spokes. Before you start, you need to know how many bikes and wheels and spokes you have.
This chapter lists options for having Big Business 14 compute what you need to buy or build and when to complete your orders and planned builds in total or by ship date.
