The 'BOM Consumption' NV Type is different from the 'Consumption' NV Type because it consumes BOM parts that are listed on a Part Definition. A 'Consumption' NV Type will consume parts listed on the particular Step Definition.
From the Step Definition's Name Value Tab, click on the BOM Consumption that we just added to to bring up the additional parameters requiring configuration. Select the Part Definition Filter that you wish to use. In our example, we will use P/N: 20-00349-01 which has the following BOM:
- Structure Wiring Harness 20-00436-01 Rev: A Qty: 1
- Yoke Wiring Harness 20-00437-01 Rev: A Qty: 1
- Pos X Pivot Assy 20-00424-02 Rev: A Qty: 2
- Neg X Pivot Assy 20-00425-02 Rev: A Qty: 2
The operator performing the step with the 'BOM Consumption' will be required to select all the parts. They will have to click the 'plus' icon to open the 'BOM Consume' form from the Traveler, an intermediate form to link to the 'Parts Grabber Dialog'. This 'BOM Consume' assists in gathering information on overall quantities consumed and if any parts are still outstanding for the BOM. After the operator selects all the parts then the step's BOM list is fulfilled and the step can be completed.
