When we create quotes / sales we can have the same item on more than one line.
I can’t see a way to do that on the BOM.
For example we make pipe clips from metal bar. The pipe clip is essentially in two halves. Two halves make one clip . So the BOM needs to have 2 lengths of metal bar, each one is 0.125 meters. We have the metal bar set up as meters, I don’t want the BOM to say 0.25 meters (total) it has to to have 0.125 on two lines so the production guys know what lenght to cut the bar to
You could have two separate raw materials, one for each half of the pipe clip even though they are the same material in the end.
Keep in mind this would change how you order stock, but maybe that’s less important to you.
Setting up operations and workstations is the proper way to do this. I would be surprised if much happens with your github request because of this but maybe they’ll figure out a way.
i create feature rewuest last month on Github. There i recomend to add option in report builder. I have the same problem with Sales Invoice. I wan’t to group one report by items, and another by Delivery Notes. Github issue is #6961
What is the hierarchy on your BOM currently? What are the items from top level to bottom raw material?
Maybe you can make a “Pipe Clip” item that has 2 “Half pipe clip” items under it. The half clip items each have 0.125 meters of bar listed as raw material. This way ordering bar should be unaffected (proper total qty), and you have a listing in your BOM of 2 identical items each with the right amount of material.
