Duplicate BOM Line Items

You can add a duplicate row to a BOM. You can assign alternate values to the custom BOM field properties in the new line.

For example, a CAD BOM requires four generic bolts and two of them must have a different finish. Create a single-line item for a bolt and duplicate it. Use custom BOM fields to add the extra information. Use the Manual Quantity column to ensure that the total number remains the same.
