Rolling-up BOMs

We are trying to learn if SolidWorks PDM has a capability to roll-up BOMs within a high-level assembly. We like the BOM feature in EPDM, and its ability to be exported to Excel. However we have not yet discovered if these BOMs can be automatically rolled-up to a "Master BOM" at any higher assembly level. Even if this is not an out-of-the-box capability, we would like to know how other EPDM users might be accomplishing this (add-ins, export to Access routine, etc.). Would appreciate a description or pointed to appropriate literature. Recommending exporting BOMs to ERP system is a non starter, as we do not have one...and may never.
