When the following is enabled:

Settings / Manufacturing / Allow several bill of materials per products using properties

then a "Properties" tab appears in under the BOM. In that tab, what do the fields "Parent BOM" and "Sequence" and "Rounding" mean?


Parent BOM: We can create parent a child hierarchy of BOMs and Products in OpenERP. For example to produce a Cycle if you have another BOM for Tyres as child. (So once you run the MO of cycle you will find other MO of Tyres also since it's a raw material to produce the cycle)

Sequence: It's the ordering of the BOM. If you have more than one BOM for one product then it sets the order in which each should appear.

Rouding: Its the rounding of the product quantity of the BOM.
