INTRODUCTION Gozinto Chart named after an Italian mathematician Professor Zepartzat Gozinto is from the word ‘goes into’ is used to provide overall microview of how materials and subassemblies are united to form finished products. It is often called Assembly chart (Shim and Siegel, 1999) In other words, it is a pictorial representation of a product that shows how the elements required to build a product fit together. Gozinto Chart is a schematic model that defines how parts go together, the order of assembly, and the overall structure of the product. This chart is ideal for getting a bird’s eye view of the process for producing most assembled products. It lists all major materials and components, subassembly operations, inspections and…show more content…
BOMs that describe the sub-assemblies are referred to as modular BOMs. An example of this is the NAAMS BOM that is used in the automative industry to list all the components in an assembly line. The structure of the NAAMS BOM is System, Line, Tool, Unit and Detail (Miller, 2008).

Low-Level Coding It is particularly suitable when common parts exist at different levels. Low-level coding helps to accumulate all gross requirements of the common part and after that, to start the record processing. If an item is used in multiple levels, the low-level code of the item is the lowest level number. The low-level code assigned to any part number is based on the part’s usage in all products. Once low-level codes are established, MRP record processing proceeds from one level code to the next, starting at level 0. Within a level, the MRP record processing is typically done in part number sequence. See Figure 5.4 below: Excerpted from Nancy R.
