In the electronics industry, each of the components in an assembly usually has a reference to a circuit symbol in the schematic.  That is, in a typical Printed Circuit board, each component is usually referred to as R1, Q1, C1, etc.  In those cases where the Bill of Material has a component quantity of more than 1, the reference to the circuit schematics can be something like R1-R7 for 7 occurences of a Resistor.

My question is where in the component record of a BOM can you store the Reference Designators and which BOM report will include this data?

Hello,
We have used the fields item text1 and text2 for additional reference information like this.
you find these fields in the BOM component view, second tab (Status/Ing text). For reporting, I know that in CSMB (BOM browser) you can add these fields to your layout, I am sure other standard reports work as well.
Hope it helps you,
Best regards!

I was hoping there was a less 'Generic' way to do this.

I will give it a try.
