Bill of Material Plot Order by Detail (data from member BOM)
Tool summary :
- Reports bill of material information for each member detail that you select from a list of members whose details are up to date.
- The " Plot Order " at Home > Project Settings > Fabricator > Sheets and Reports > Bill of Material Layout sets up which columns appear on this report.
- At minimum, the report should be set up to show "Piece Mark" and "Unit Quantity" and "Total Quantity" and "Description" and "Unit Weight" and "Total Weight."
The report matches the plotted bill of material. If you want a report that does not match the plotted BOM, you can output, for example, a Bill of Material Report 1 by Detail .
- See report header for an explanation of information that appears in the header of this report. See columns on the report for an explanation of each of the columns that can be made to appear on the report. Step-by-step instructions provide additional information.
- You may want to output this report instead of placing a bill of material on a sheet, or to serve as an extra copy of the BOM data for a member that is on a sheet.

Report header (also see the example ) :
|Report writer links are based on the data source fields for the Report Writer's Bill Report Of Details , which you can Open in the reports/SDS2 file folder.|
Piecemark: The piecemark ( member piecemark ) of the members described on this page of the report. Each Bill of Material Plot Order by Detail provides information about all members assigned this one piecemark.
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.Piecemark
Report Writer: CurrentLocation.Fabricator
Job: The name of the current Job at the time this report was generated.
The report includes materials only from the Job that is listed here.
Report Writer: CurrentLocation.Job
Report type: The type of report is "Plot Report."
Note: For a Bill of Material Report 1 by Detail , "Report 1" is listed. For a Bill of Material Report 2 by Detail , "Report 2" is listed. For a Bill of Material Report 3 by Detail , "Report 3" is listed.
Page number: The number of this page in the Bill of Material Plot Order by Detail . Since a separate report is generated for each member selected , a typical report is one page long.
Columns on the report (also see the example ) :
|Setup: The " Plot Order " in Bill of Material Layout sets up which columns appear on this report. For a Bill of Material Report 1 by Detail , " Report 1 Order " is used instead of " Print Order ." For a Bill of Material Report 2 by Detail , " Report 2 Order " is used. For a Bill of Material Report 3 by Detail , " Report 3 Order " is used.|
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.UnitQuantity
Total Quantity: Either the total number of members under this piecemark if this line is the first line of a member detail's bill of material, or the total number of pieces of a particular submaterial required to fabricate the total number of members under this piecemark.
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.TotalQuantity
Description: Either the type of member (BEAM, COLUMN, etc.) if this line is the first line of a member detail's bill of material, or the section size that conventionally describes the material in the " Description " column of a submaterial line on the member bill of material.
|Section naming conventions : || wide flange || W tee || channel || angle || tube || S_shape || S tee || plate || flat bar |||
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.Description
Piece Mark: The piecemark ( member piecemark ) of the members being referenced.
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.Piecemark
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.LengthDimension
Unit Weight: Either the weight of one member with the piecemark being referenced (if this line is the first line of a member detail's bill of material), or the weight of an individual piece of submaterial (if this line is a subsequent line of a member detail's bill of material).
How weight is calculated depends on whether the choice made to the setup option " Shop bill weight based on " is ' Volume ' or ' Length '. The weight is expressed in pounds or kilograms , depending on the primary dimension " Units ."
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.UnitWeight
Total Weight: Either the total weight of one member times the total number of members under this piecemark (if this line describes members), or the total weight of all pieces of this submaterial that make up one member times the total number of members under this piecemark.
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.TotalWeight
Remarks: Any text string , user-entered or a line from User Routing Configuration #4 that has been applied to the material.
If the " Print Order " for " Steel Grade ," and/or " Mult. Cutting # ," and/or " Labor Code ," and/or " Job Cost Code " and/or " Advance mill # " are set to ' Merge ' in Bill of Material Layout , the data for those fields associated with the selected member is automatically entered into this column (the "Remarks" column) of the report.
A "Remarks" appears on this report when a " Plot Order " is entered for " Remarks " in Bill of Material Layout . This is true even if other fields have been designated to ' Merge ' into the " Remarks " column.
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.Remarks
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.MinorMark
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.Grade
Mult. Cutting #: Any text string , user-entered or a line from User Routing Configuration #1 that has been applied to the material.
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.MultCuttingNumber
Labor Code: Any text string , user-entered or a line from User Routing Configuration #2 that has been applied to the material.
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.LaborCode
Job Cost Code: Any text string , user-entered or a line from User Routing Configuration #3 that has been applied to the material.
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.JobCostCode
Members that are in different sequences may be assigned the same piecemark when the setup option " Break major marks apart by " is set to something other than ' Sequence ' or ' Zone '.
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.Sequence
Sequence Quantity: The number of members that have been assigned the sequence reported in the " Sequence " column.
Report Writer: BillOfMaterial.SequenceQuantity
Advance Mill #: The ABM ID ( page-line or system ID).
Note: It is possible for the member main material of different members that have the same member piecemark to be assigned different ABM page-line numbers (or system IDs). If this happens, the lowest page-line number is referenced here.
How to output a Bill of Material Plot Order by Detail :
1 . Before output of the report(s):
1a : Configure the columns that appear on this report (and the order in which they appear) by assigning items a " Plot Order " in Bill of Material Layout . Example : You can configure the report to tell you how many submaterial pieces (designated by a minor mark) are required to fabricate a particular shipping member (designated by a major piecemark), the unit weight of each submaterial, the total weight of each member, and also the material description.
1b : This type of report is compiled from the bills of material of members. Only a member that has been automatically detailed can generate a Bill of Material Plot Order by Detail . A warning message is generated listing members that you select which have not yet been detailed.
1c (optional) : You can Edit Bill to alter the information that will be compiled into this report for a particular member detail. However, do not auto detail the member after making these changes -- your alterations to the member's bill will be lost.
2 . Use any one (1) of the following methods to begin output of this report:
Method 1 : Home > Reports > System Reports > Bill of Material > Bill of Material Plot Order by Detail .
Method 2 : Click the Bill of Material Plot Order by Detail icon, which is pictured above. The icon can be taken from the group named ' Reports ' and placed on a toolbar (classic) or the ribbon (lightning). Ribbon configuration is done using Customize Interface .
|You can use the listing options " Hide ... " and " Show All " to adjust which classes of members are shown on the selection list. " Destination " can be used to temporarily redirect where the report will be output.|
Alternative 1 : Select the member details you want separate reports to be compiled from, then press " OK. " Go to step 4.
Alternative 2 : Press " Cancel " to end this operation without outputting the report(s). Do not continue.
4 . A Bill Plot Reports is output for each member detail that you selected.
Note 1: If you selected members that have not yet been detailed, you get a warning with a list of those not-yet-detailed members. A report is not generated for any of those members.
Note 2: If you output the reports to the report viewer (" Screen "), you can now review the reports on screen then optionally print them or output them to disk (see report viewer ).
