3. Assembly BoM
The Assembly BoM in SAP Business One is a collection of individual items in the assembled set with their price. This BoM is similar to the Sales BoM with only one difference. In this BoM, the finished product is listed as the sales item and not an inventory item. The product components do not appear as child items or sub-items in the Assembly BoM. However, components appear on the order pick list.

4. Template BoM
The Template BoM in SAP Business One is the most flexible type of BoM, where any item can be designated as either parent or child item. This BoM can be used for both production and sales documents. Typically, it shows the parent item on the top and the child items under the parent item. The Template BoM allows you to add, update, replace, or remove any item to modify the production and sales documents.
Besides these four Bill of Material types in SAP Business One, another type is the Engineering BoM which defines the list of assemblies and assembly parts used in engineering. The Engineering BoM displays the entire structure from a functional standpoint and is represented in the form of a mechanical drawing of the engineering product. To create engineering BoMs, engineers use CAD software tools to create the product design.
In summary, manufacturers can improve their production efficiency and productivity by using the Bill of Materials functionality in SAP Business One. With manual BoM processes, the production phase can be vulnerable to human errors. An integrated ERP tool such as SAP B1 can improve the accuracy and timeliness of BoMs.
