This option is not functioning correctly. It only activates if there is a least one item in the build that has a type “Assy”
If you have the same part multiple times in the build you can’t consolidate them to get a total qty without adding a dummy “assy” part somewhere. Could this be made active permanently so we don’t have to add dummy “assy” part to build

If you don't have any sub-assemblies in your top level assembly isn't the indented parts list and the consolidated pick list the same?
Why would you have the same part multiple times at the same level in the Bom?

No the two are not quite the same you can always have identical items in a BOM, items used at a different positions in that assembly or sub assembly.
The assembly drawing will itemize all the parts in a parts list
The BOM could be
ITEM qty Position
M12x45 screw 10 Item 1 Left Side Cover screws drg. ref: IMC-02-ASSY-01-12-01
M20x70 Bolt 4 Item 2 Plumber Block bolts drg. ref: IMC-02-ASSY-01-12-02
M12x45 screw 10 Item 3 Right Side Cover screws drg. ref: IMC-02-ASSY-01-12-03
M12x45 screw 36 Item 4 Top cover screws drg. ref: IMC-02-ASSY-01-12-04
This is the unconsolidated parts list to be read in-conjunction with assembly drawing IMC-02-ASSY-01-12
You could consolidate this to
ITEM qty Position
M12x45 screw 56
M20x70 Bolt 4
This would be the consolidated pick list for stores.
When you have big assemblies or big sub assemblies you cant keep adding quantity to one item
you have to use the position field so the assembler knows where the parts go, most times a drawing number is included with a description in the position Field.
This way you can also trap quantity errors during assembly, the assembler can pin point where the over or under qty discrepancy is as he has the unconsolidated print out, as apposed to the store man who wants a consolidated pick list to perform his task with the least amount of trips to the same bin.

I see, I keep my assembly's small (20 - 30 items max) and use more sub assembly's.

Markus. I'll put this in the 'ToDo' list.
