Demand BOM Tab
On the Demand BOM tab for a material, you can view and manage the direct children of the current material in the demand BOM for the selected demand window.
You can access this tab by viewing a material and clicking Demand BOM.
A demand BOM is a minimal BOM that contains the information needed to calculate demand as part of identifying production bottlenecks, when the demand for the demand window is Set on Materials. The demand BOM contains the child materials and quantities required to produce one unit of the parent material.
Editing the demand BOM for a material impacts only the selected demand window. If demand for the selected demand window is Set on Materials, the bottleneck analysis for the demand window is recalculated. If demand for the selected demand window is Set on Work Centers, the bottleneck analysis calculations for the demand window are not impacted. For more information about the demand BOM, see Viewing and Navigating the Demand BOM.
