Dynamics AX Service Items on Bills of Material


    Email | Print

    Adding a service item to a Bill of Material (BOM) in Microsoft Dynamics AX can be helpful when you want to track an internal cost or an external service cost with a contract manufacturer. In the second case, you can add the service item to the BOM and link it to a vendor so that when a production order is released, a purchase order to the vendor is created. Below you can find the steps to set this up on a BOM.
