Set fixed quantities for a component in a bill of materials


Is there any way to set up a fixed quantity for a component in a Bill of material? I mean setting a fixed component quantity that is independent of the quantity being manufactured. for example to paint 100 meters I use a roller, just like when I paint 200 meters.

Do you know how can we do this?

Many thanks in advance!!

Hi Angel,

Have you found a way to address your issue?

If so, how did you?

I have the exact same requirement and I don’t believe there an out of the box feature to support this.

The roller is not a component of the bill of the materials in that scenario, it’s more of a resource that needs to be planned around.  I assume advanced manufacturing would have the capabilities to handle this.

This is a usual functionality in other  ERPs I know, and is always a functionality of the bill of materials (JDEdwards, Oracle EBS, Oracle ERP cloud).

Do you know how to ask for a knew functionality for NetSuite?


Many thanks for your answer!!
