The 150% BOM

Over the next couple weeks, I will be exploring the %150 BOM concept and how the concept can be implemented in ERPNext.

I recently encountered the “150% BOM” and had to look deeper.

The 150% BOM concept is a method of managing products that are essentially variations on a common theme, such as a car that is available pained either blue or red. You could manage the cars as completely separate products (albeit that share a lot of common components), but are truly different products. A 150% BOM includes all the variants of a product, from which specific BOMs – the 100% BOMs – are created.

Here is a simple 150% BOM for the marketing level of the SCC Aircraft Wireless product. Three different lengths for antenna and ground wires are provided in the BOM, and a specific length of must be selected to create an order.

 

 

Stay tuned, the next update will describe implementation options in ERPNext.
