What is BOM file?
The Bill of Materials file contains detailed information about the components of your Mac. It lists each component and its quantity in the parts list, with a note indicating if any are re-ordered or substituted. This is important for the manufacturing process if you want to buy those specific components from a third party or when taking your computer to an Apple store for repair.
