Hi All,

I had a scenario where the product can be purchased on 
- N quantity of ‘a item’  which have 
- pre fixed X amount of b-item 
included on every sales/order.

 - Hydraulic Hose ( 3m long or 5m long both with Hose Clamp on each end)
 - RJ45 Cable ( N meter of CAT6 cable and 2 pcs of RJ45 connectors.)
 - etc.

Now to the question;

How should I approach this scenario using BOM / Sales BOM?

Hello Nonnatee,

Checking following link to learn more about Sales BOM feature.

Considering your example, Hydraulic Hose and RJ45 Cable will be added as stock item. You will need to add one more non-stock item.

When creating Sales BOM, you should select that non-stock item, and in the item table Hydraulic Hose and RJ45 Cable will be added.

In the sales transactions like Sales Order/Invoice, Delivery Note, you will select non-stock item. Hydraulic Hose and RJ45 Cable will be pulled from Sales BOM and updated into Packing Details table. On submission of stock transactions, stock of Hydraulic Hose and RJ45 Cable will be deducted.
