We have been running into an issue where the system automatically takes RAW material and turns it into a “Child BOM.” When it does this, the material pricing doesn’t transfer to the quote and has caused issues with misquoting if it is overlooked. I haven’t been able to track down when it creates a child BOM. I have gone into the part record and clicked on Remove as BOM but that doesn’t seem to change when it does or does not happen.
@theid - that’s really annoying, sorry to hear that.
What is the top-level BOM part number you are quoting?
We’ll take a look into this and see if we can’t reproduce the behavior you’re experiencing, and get back to you ASAP.
The most recent part number that I am having an issue with is FIG53089693 with the RAW material being RAWUHP05004X10. I had already gone through and removed the child BOM on this one and removed BOM from the part record, so I am not sure this will happen again. I can create a dummy quote with some of the part numbers that may be experiencing it to see if I can get them to replicate and send them your way.
It is for sure happening on line 1 for this. As it isn’t a current order, please feel free to play around with this one and see what’s going on. The other lines aren’t seeming to do this but have in the past.
It looks like the component “RAWUHP05004X10B” for part “FIG53089693” is in fact a BOM. It just does not have any components.
You can remove it as a BOM under part edit.
Hi @theid it looks like engineering fixed this, it just isn’t in your environment yet. Which is why we were having a hard time reproducing it. Sorry for the confusion.
Oh good! Thanks for the follow up. I look forward to being in the right environment now haha.
