What should be included in a BOM?

While your bill of materials (BOM) will vary based on the specific industry or product, it’ll usually cover the same basic data about each part or component needed to create the product. For some projects, a simplified version may be appropriate, but to be safe, you’ll want to account for the following: 

  • Name of the final product 
  • Name of the part or component 
  • Number for each part or component 
  • Part or component function decriptions
  • List of unit quantities for each part 
  • Appropriate metric for each part
  • Supplier names and contact data
  • Cost per unit of each part or component
  • Total cost of each component
