Bill of material properties

If you check "Allow several bill of materials per products using properties" in the manufacturing settings, you will be able to specify several bill of materials to a single product and specify properties on them.

In Manufacturing => Configuration => Properties, there is a "Properties composition" field that can take several values: min/max/plus.

Does anyone know what those values represent, functionally?

For the life of me I can't find any code that operates on the values in that field. In 7.0 the help text even states that the value is NOT used for computation. In a broader sense, the mrp.property object seems to be an incomplete framework that requires python code to expand on it in some way to make it useful.

There a bug that disable this functionally. I have found these step to solve the problem patching the mrp module:
On module mrp modify the "__init__.py" adding the line:

import sale_stock

And add a new file "sale_stock.py" in the module mrp with:

from openerp.osv import osv,fields

class sale_order(osv.osv):
    _inherit = 'sale.order'

    def _prepare_order_line_procurement(self, cr, uid, order, line, move_id, date_planned, context=None):
        result = super(sale_order, self)._prepare_order_line_procurement(cr, uid, order, line, move_id, date_planned, context)
        properties = [x.id for x in line.property_ids]
        result['bom_id'] = self.pool.get('mrp.bom')._bom_find(cr, uid, line.product_id.id, line.product_uom.id, properties) or False
        return result
