Bill of Materials

Inventory Bill of Materials Report Overview

The Bill of Materials Report screen within SapphireOne Inventory Reports provides a comprehensive overview of all the inventory items used to build a new inventory item.

For example, if the user were to use inventory items to assemble a bicycle, the bicycle would become a new inventory item with a new inventory ID, and the Mill of Materials Report would display the items used to make up the bike.
