ERP Term
"Bill of Material (BOM)"

The raw materials that are used to build a finished good or subassembly.

A bill of materials (BOM) is a list of the raw materials that are used to build a finished good or subassembly. The BOM includes the quantity and type of each material needed and the specific part number for each component. This information is essential for manufacturing and assembly operations. 

BOMs can be organized in various ways, depending on the manufacturing process and the company's specific needs. For example, a company may use a single BOM for all products or have separate BOMs for each product type. A BOM can also be organized by assembly line or the specific manufacturing process used to produce a product.  

No matter how it is organized, the BOM is an essential tool for ensuring that the manufacturing process runs smoothly and that finished products meet quality standards.
