APPGEN Bill of Materials

The Appgen PowerWindows Bill of Materials package tightly integrates with the PowerWindows Inventory Control system and provides the features necessary to accurately and easily make adjustments to stock levels and product costs of all inventory items involved in the production of subassemblies and finished products. This system is ideal for both manufacturers and wholesale distributors who perform light assembly.

Each bill of materials (BOM) is a comprehensive list of the components and quantities necessary to produce a finished product or subassembly. There are no limitations for number of components, or number of levels to a BOM. The components may be raw materials, subassemblies, other finished products, labor, setup, overhead, subcontracted labor, and other production and miscellaneous considerations. In other words, virtually all components and processes involved in the manufacture or assembly of a product are represented in the BOM in a quantitative manner, giving the ability to automatically and accurately compute the cost of any product at any given time.

Powerful features include:

  • Multi-company capability
  • Each Bill allows an unlimited number of parts and levels
  • Unlimited number of revisions and user-defined information with notes and dates
  • Cost Code File keeps track of different types of labor, overhead, subcontract, and miscellaneous costs
  • Substitute single parts on all subassemblies and finished products, on demand
  • Recalculate costs on all subassemblies and finished products, on demand
  • Copy Bill of Materials function allows fast and easy creation of new Bill for new products which are largely derived from existing products
  • Top Down Breakdown report provides a hierarchical view of the product
  • Explosion Report generates inventory requirements for a specified number of complete products
  • Implosion Report determines inventory requirements to fully utilize existing inventory in production
  • Where Used Report
  • Costed Bill of Materials Report generates a breakdown of all assemblies, subassemblies, labor, and other component costs
  • Transfer to Stock function automatically adjusts inventory
  • The Master File List feature and the powerful Appgen Query Language (AQL) let you extract and print your data for hard-copy files
  • The powerful Appgen Cross Reference feature allows instant easy access to any product by typing a few letters that begin any word or words in the product name
  • At any point of entry, Appgen Quick Menus allow the user to perform different functions and return to the primary task instantly
  • Appgen Quick Windows provide easy access to supporting data at the click of a button
