    Is BOM DROP the only way to configure a KIT product?

      Not sure what a KIT is. BOM drop is to deploy the BOM structure to a Sales Order or a Project Order. To define a BOM structure its done in the Product main window. U can refer to the Compiere User manual purchaseable at or check out our look up the manuals.

      As you can guess from Red1's response ... KITs are not something supported in Adempiere.
      And as Red1 explained the BOM Drop simply eases the task of placing all items, that make up a BOM, on a Document. It offers no other fucntionality... You may be able to move instances of a BOM around, but you cannot use components of the BOM (KIT) or replenish it.  Unfortunately I cannot think how you might simulate a KIT in adempiere... dummy warehouses perhaps?  I think this is one of those areas requiring enhancement.

      Hello Howard,

      You can use a 'non-stocked' BOM to accomplish some kitting requirements.  On the Product record, check Bill Of Materials = Yes, and Stocked = No.  Then when you issue a transaction such as a Sales Order, the system will move the component items instead of the master product.

      Maybe that can help.

    Hi Joel,
    to follow up on your conversation. I created a Configurable BOM (Consumption Master) and created Options, Alternatives (Varianten) and Components. When I go into the transaction productconfiguration BOM and select the sales order and BOM to insert it, always the whole master BOM gets inserted, as I can see on the price calculated in the sales order line. I am on 3.7.0. do you have got any clue what the problem might be? Of course I put it on non-stocked and BOM yes, as you were mentioning above,
    thanks Tom

    Set the error trace level to 'all' and try saving the product again, you should see an error log to find why it didn't save.

    Hi Vinod, you should check the log for detailed information of the error. Check Tools|Preference on Erros Tab you'll find more detail.

    Best Regards,
