PLM child item (see also parent item)

In a PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) system, a child item refers to a component or sub-component of a larger product or assembly, also known as a parent item. A child item is a part or component that is used to assemble or make up the parent item.

For example, a car would be the parent item, while the wheels, engine, and transmission would be child items. These child items are used to assemble the car, and they have their own attributes, properties, and documentation in the PLM system.

In a Bill of Materials (BOM), a child item is an item that is a component of another item. The parent item is the item that contains the component. A BOM is a list of the parts and components required to build a product, and it can be hierarchical, with parent items and child items nested within each other.
