A bill of materials (bill of material or BOM) is a list of sub-assemblies, parts and the quantities of each needed to manufacture an end product. All manufacturers start by creating a bill of materials (BOM).
Several departments (engineering, manufacturing, purchasing, and more) add to and consume the data contained within the BOM. Typical additions to the BOM include stock/non-stock categorization, supplier information, costing information, materials information, inventory tracking and many more.
Export BOM to CSV
With Glovius, you can export BOM data and save as a CSV file. BOM exported from Glovius defines the product as designed (engineering bill of materials). The following options are available while exporting BOM to CSV
- Top – This lists the top or the first level of components in the assembly. It displays the components directly needed to make the assembly or sub-assembly.
- Part – This option lists all the parts and the quantities required for each part.
- Assembly – This option lists the sub-assemblies in the assembly.
The exported BOM CSV from Glovius contains the part/sub-assembly names and quantity. In the next release, we will add attributes like part number, unit of measure, description etc.Free 7-day trial
