To Define the BOM Format
1. Using the system editor, create the BOM output format file.
2. Add the following option to the configuration file:
bom_format formatname.fmt
3. In Creo Parametric, add user-defined parameters to parts and assemblies using Tools > Relations > Parameters > Add Parameter.
4. Click Tools > Bill of Materials. The BOM appears in an INFORMATION WINDOW and is written to file.
Assembly members that are blanked on a layer or suppressed through assembly representation are listed in the BOM for the assembly as if they were displayed.
