What should be included in a BOM? 

While your 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 companies or projects, a simplified version may be appropriate, but to be safe, you’ll want to account for the following: 

  • Product Name: Name of the final product 
  • Part Name: Name of the part or component 
  • Part Number: Assigned number for each part or component, making it easy to locate 
  • Description: Short description of the part or component function so that the reader understands the need 
  • Quantity: List of unit quantities needed for each part 
  • Unit of Measure: Appropriate metric for each part (yards, gallons, etc.) 
  • Supplier/Vendor: Supplier names and contact data, if you’ll procure parts from an external vendor 
  • Unit Cost: Cost per unit of each part or component to scale your production should another order be necessary 
  • Total Cost: Total cost of each componentwhich is calculated by multiplying the quantity by the unit cost
