How to make assembly cut affect BOM

Hi, I have an issue with assembly cuts. An assembly cut affects things like weight, but not the BOM quantities. Is there a way to change this so the BOM actually disregards components that are removed by the cut?

 

The image below is a simplified example of insulating plates stacked on a roof. If I make a cutout in the roof, I need fewer plates. I wish to exclude the plates that are totally consumed by the cut. Dynamic BOM quantities would also be a great tool to help minimize the number of plates necessary if I move things around. Any ideas?
