Scheme-it contains a Bill of Materials (BOM) manager that keeps track of various schematic part attributes including: RefDes, Name, Value, Manufacturer, Part Number, Digi-Key Part Number, Description, and Notes.
Whenever a new schematic symbol is placed into a project, it automatically gets added to the BOM.
Edit the attributes in the BOM by clicking on a table cell. This changes the cell into an editable text area and allows you to input a value using your keyboard. Once you add or change a value, press the enter key on your keyboard to complete the edit.
Change the sort order of the BOM table by clicking on an attribute in the table header.
Scheme-it's latest feature allows you to export a BOM to a spreadsheet that can be used in Digi-Key's Enhanced BOM Manager. This allows you to make further edits to your BOM and manage your components.
Scheme-it also allows you to import your BOM to your current project by selecting the "click to import" option under the "Import BOM" category of the left sidebar. On the Imported BOM, the symbol components loaded can be assigned, removed, or deleted.
Send a quote request to Digi-Key for the price and availability of your BOM by clicking on the quote button under the BOM tab.
Once you have completed your Scheme-it project, you can order all of the parts used in your design by clicking on the shopping cart icon under the BOM tab. The only parts available to order are those with valid Digi-Key part numbers. You can assign these part numbers in the BOM tab, or in the component properties dialog which can be accessed by double-clicking on a generic component.
