On v6.1, we use this scenario to import BOMs:

  1. Import products
  2. Export products to get their ID
  3. Import BOM using product ID
  4. Export BOM to get their ID
  5. Import BOM Components using product ID and BOM ID

VSEARCH in your spreadsheet software is your friend to match name with ID.

In addition to the above answer, ensure that if your bom has multiple levels, that you import the lowest level before the highest level. By that I mean, if you have a car that has a bom, in which is another Bom called engine (and it's components). you need to import the engine above the car bom.
