Indented BOM (Sortof?)

I am currently looking for a way to be able to do an indented BOM that reflects the BOMs of the sub-assemblies. What I mean by that is that I want my indented BOM to reflect the balloon numbers.


Currently, when we want to send a drawing in production, we use the master assembly to send information to our ERP. The information currently gathered is stuff like length, width, thickness, description, etc... Though, when we do an indented BOM on our master assembly, the numbering of the balloon does not reflect the lower sub-assemblies.


Here is an example of what I mean. The assembly 170180-E-003 has the 170180-E-002 assembly into it and the 170180-E-002 has the 170180-E-001. If you look closely at the BOMs, the numbering isn't the same. What I would like it to do is to show me the correct balloon numbers corresponding to the sub-assemblie's drawing BOM. It is very hard to explain for me so I hope you understand what I am trying to explain.



This is the BOM i get when I do an intended BOM.


Any help you could bring would be greatly appreciated.
