BM1601 Bill of Material Feature/Option Configuration Inquiry

Feature/Option Configuration Inquiry

Application Overview


The Feature/Option Configuration Inquiry application provides an easy way to display various "what-if" configurations of feature items.  The user can select different options for a feature item and analyze their affect on the item's cost and price.  The application also allows the user to manipulate individual unit prices of selected options if BOMP Setup is set accordingly.  This application is a useful tool for determining if a feature/option structure has been created to provide the most logical entry of orders in BOMP and COP.


This application is for informational or test purposes only.  For example, it can be used to ensure proper configuration of features to provide maximum ease of order entry (i.e. required features entered with the lowest feature numbers).  No production orders will be created from the configurations entered here.
