A configurable BOM (Bill of Materials) is a set of parts specific to a certain product configuration. For each configuration, where a product has a different set of parts, you can create a BOM.
When a BOM triggers, it appears to buyers on commerce document line item pages. If the parts contained in the BOM link up with the parts in the parts database, then parts pricing also appears on line item pages. Buyers see multiple BOMs when several apply to a given configuration. When the system triggers multiple advanced BOMs, which are created as strings, all of the strings appear concatenated in the order they were generated.
A BOM rule has a condition and an action. The values of the attribute(s) selected as the condition attribute(s) determine the result of the condition, which when true triggers an action. The action here is to display a list showing the parts description and their quantities. This list is shown in a separate tab in the pipeline viewer or in the commerce document.
