  • Select an Explosion Depth – This has several options:
    • One Level – The standard view of the composition.
    • Structure – The composition with levels showing the components of other compositions.
    • Productionise – The composition flattened to a practical level, taking into account the Minimum Weighable Quantity (an application setting) and the value of Prevent Explosion for formulations.
    • Simplify – Simplify (explode) the composition. This differs to Flatten option by taking into account ‘Prevent Explosion’ if indicated on any formulations.
    • Flatten – The entire composition (flattened)
    • Manufacturing Instructions – The composition shown in stage order with manufacturing instructions based on each stage.
  • Select a Layout – This has two options:
    • Without Costs – This does not include cost information
    • With Costs – This will include the Unit and Extended Cost of each component and the Unit and Total Cost of the focus item.
  • Specify a quantity – This will adjust the quantity of each component accordingly.
