Is it possible to make a Phantom BOM for a “sub-assembly”, so that its components are pulled during Mass Issue, without having to make a sub-assy in the Job?
We have products that use varying amounts of different Epoxies - each epoxy consists of two components (the resin and the hardener). The different mixtures may require different mixing ratios (1:1, 2:1, etc…), and the final volume may vary (some expand more than others).
I’d like to make a Phantom part for the mixture, with a BOM calling out the proper ratio of the two parts. I’d also like the UOM for the phantom part to be in some unit of volume, so the engineer needs only enter how much volume they need to fill, and not to have to figure out the cured density and mixing ratio for every two part epoxy we use.
Sample Indented MOM for finished product WIDGET-001:
MTL# PartNum Description Qty UOM Fixed 10 WID-CAN Canister for Widget-001 1 EA NO 20 WID-GUTS Internals of Widget-001 1 EA NO 30 EPX-0001 Epoxy Blend XYZ-123 125 CC NO
The BOM for EPX-0001 would be:
MTL# PartNum Description Qty UOM Fixed 10 EPXR-001 Resin, XYZ-123 0.0200 LB NO 20 EPXH-001 Hardener, XYZ-123 0.0125 LB NO
- Would not be stocked, and would have UOM of CC
- has a mixing ratio of 2:1 by volume, which equates to 2:1.25 by mass
- 0.02 LB of Resin + 0.0125 LB of Hardener yields 1 CC of cured epoxy.
Currently, that first MOM would be:
MTL# PartNum Description Qty UOM Fixed 10 WID-CAN Canister for Widget-001 1 EA NO 20 WID-GUTS Internals of Widget-001 1 EA NO 30 EPXR-001 Resin, XYZ-123 2.5 LB NO 40 EPXH-001 Hardener, XYZ-123 1.5625 LB NO
Which is a pain to calc the required raw material of each epoxy component, for each job.
