New Data Exposed episode: Exploding Bill of Materials using Graph Shortest Path

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: Azure SQL Database articles.

In this demo, we will show how you can explode a Bill of Materials using Graph Shortest Path function, introduced with SQL Server 2019 CTP3.1, to find out which BOMs/assemblies a given product/part belongs to. This information can be useful for reporting or product recall scenarios. We will explore the Shortest Path function and try to understand different ways in which it can be used.
