BOM that allows for repeating the same product (or show the assembly of the product)

I would like to have a way to show the "structure" of a product.

For example, when manufacturing skateboards, there is:

a top graphic
fibreglass (product A)
bamboo (product B)
bamboo (product C)
bamboo (product B)
fibreglass (product A)
a bottom graphic

BOMs don't seem to allow me to use the same product more than once (though I know that I can w multiple quantities). The main thing I am looking for is a way to show the "stack" of materials to a worker.

Is there a way to do this in OpenERP?

Instead of using one product twice, why don't you use Product Quantity in BOM?

In you case you need two Fibreglass (product A), then you can give 2 Quantity.

Thanks, I hear ya. The main thing is that I need a way to display the stack order of the materials to a worker. Was curious as to whether there is a way to do this in openerp.

In that case you can customize mrp module as per your requirement.
