How to: Copy Versions of Production BOMs

When working with long production BOMs or slight changes in the versions, it is useful to copy an existing version of a production BOM into a new version or into an existing version. Already existing information on the lines is overwritten in the destination version.

There are two ways you can copy Production BOM Versions:

  • Use the Copy BOM Version function.

  • Use the Copy BOM Header function.

When you use the Copy BOM Version function, you get a list of versions to select from.

When you use the Copy BOM Header function, the lines are copied from the first version.
