A bill of materials (BOM) is a comprehensive formula management list of all the components, materials, and parts needed to build or manufacture a product or service. It provides the key formulas and recipes about each component, including its name, quantity, function, and supplier.

BOMs play an important role in managing inventory and production costs. By having a complete and accurate recipe and formula BOM, businesses can avoid ordering too many or too few supplies, which can lead to wasted materials and costly delays. BOMs can also help businesses negotiate better prices with suppliers by ensuring that they are only ordering the exact amount of supplies needed.
