Can the BOM handle reference designators?

Circuit board manufacturers use reference designators to indicate component location coordinates on the job traveler. This can be achieved within the BOM by attaching multiple References to a component that print on the job traveler.

Each reference consists of two fields. The Reference can be a location coordinate or drawing reference or it can be used as a table where a one-to-many relationship with the component is needed. The Qty is optional and represents the quantity relative to one unit of the BOM parent.

Freeform Job Notes can be entered against any component and provide an informal alternative to using References.
