What Is a TBOM in SAP Solution Manager?
BOM stands for technical bill of materials. A TBOM contains a list of all objects involved in a transaction, including function modules, tables, and user interface elements. From Solution Manager, you start a trace, run through your transaction, and then turn off the trace. Solution Manager collects the list of objects used in the transaction. BPCA compares objects in a transport against objects in a TBOM to determine what is affected by a given transport.
Worksoft Certify can be used to automate the process of generating dynamic TBOMs for BPCA. To do this, Certify processes are linked into an Executable Library, a Process Step Library, or Business Processes. Certify actions are then used to start and stop TBOMs and run automated test cases to create the dynamic TBOMs.
