What is a Multilevel BOM?

Multilevel BOM Definition

A multilevel bill of materials (BOM), also referred to as an indented BOM, depicts parent-child relationships and shows the hierarchical structure of product assemblies and their related parts and components. The structure of a multilevel BOM resembles a family tree and maps out all components and subassemblies for a product in two or more levels. Each BOM level will detail all the components that are directly or indirectly used in the production of a parent item.
