I`m evaluating miniMRP and would like to print a flat BOM from a multi-level BOM. The print would show each part once, and only once, with the total quantity used (i.e. the sum of the qties used at every level). Can this be done? Thanks.

The BOM can be displayed in two different `modes`.

One mode displays the BOM list grouped by sub assembly. An item common to more than one sub assembly would appear more than once in entirely different parts of the list.

The other mode re-arranges the list showing all items sorted by location meaning common items are shown directly next to each other.

The second mode I described isn`y exactly the same as your request but it is intended to make it easier when walking your warehouse picking the items. Basically you have the item listed more than once but you don`t end up visiting the same shelf/location more than once.

To switch the BOM between modes look near the top of the window at the buttons which change the display/list between modes.

Hope I explained this clearly.

Yeah, I found the flat display mose, but wanted identical items combined. My client wants this, so I`ll export into an excel spreadsheet and add like item quantities together. Thanks for the response.

There`s a couple of buttons at the top. One switches it between flat or multilevel, the other rearranges the list so that identical items are listed directly next to each other.

it doesn`t actually `add` the quantities together but it shows them directly one above the other so that if you`re running round a storeroom picking items you won`t need to visit the same shelf twice.

The function of summarizing a Hierarchial Bom to a Flat Bom and tallying quantities and costs at the various levels is paramount function of Bom
processing for all industry that puts things together into end products of greater and greater complexity. It would be fundamental part of any
MRP or Bom management process.
