Scenario 6 – Import BOM and Material

In this scenario, we will show you how to import to Asprova the Manufacturing BOM and Items data.

We will use the file “25.08 Scenario 6 – Import BOM and Material”.


This is the Data I/O table.


The item code is connected with the Item name at the Material (Import).


This is the actual Material (import) file. It includes the item code and item name.


This is the data I/O setting for M-BOM. This is its TSV file. In this file, you will see its product code, process number, process code, instruction code, input item and the required quantity.


Confirm the settings for Material and BOM in Data I/O table by checking the parameter setup below.

Verify that the Import column is set as “Yes (differential)” and Import property conversion expression column is set as “Instruction Type = I”.


This means that the Instruction type will be automatically set as Input instruction as soon as you import the file.


This is the Item table. You will see that the Item name is blank at the beginning. The Item name will be imported from the TSV file.


This is the Integrated Master Editor. The Use instruction will be maintained in Asprova and the Input instruction will be imported from ERP.


Let’s start importing the TSV files.


Once completed, the item name will be displayed in the Item table and the Input instruction has been imported. See table below.



Go to the Resource Gantt chart and press the Reschedule button to see the scheduling according to the imported BOM and items data.
