BOM structures in large projects. Use Collective?


Hello All,

I am a little new with this forum. I was a super user in a high volume high mix industry where we used collective production orders quite frequently.

I am now working with highly engineered long term capitol projects.

It looks like a lot of the BOM's are flat and ties to a WBS project number. This makes planning very arduous since we are essentually building components into the routing.

Collective orders since it seems to give order and structure for materials and planning.

I am wondering what similar industries do in this environment. I would welcome any comment regarding the pro's and con's of pushing to change toward using collective more.

Thank You
