Bill of Materials - Component Item Replacement



Searches for components in a bill, or bills, that you want to replace with another component. Entering an effective date makes the “old item” obsolete as of the effective date and creates a new line item for the new item. All quantities of the component will remain the same for the new item with the exception of the effective date.


The Materials Detail grid for the bill will reflect all components of a bill, regardless of whether they may have been replaced. To see current components only, print a hard copy of the bill.
