What is the best way to have an assembly show up as a part in a BOM?

This is mainly for procurement purposes. 


We have a custom sheetmetal part(150-1010-0005) that, together with PEM fasteners, create an assembly with our part number on it (150-1010-0003).  When we get these built, we will have the sheet metal shop install the PEM fasteners.  But currently when I do a part BOM, I get he PEM fasteners and the sheetmetal part (Obviously).  What I would like is fore the Assemly (or a part version of it) to be in the BOM (150-1010-0003).  This way, when procurement gets the BOM, they will know exacvtly what to order.


THe only way I currently know how to do this is to make a Part out of the assembly, hide the PEMs and Sheetmetal part from the BOM. Is there any other way?
