BUC - make inventory reporting bundle aware

BUC inventory search should be able to take a SKU which is a bundle and return the inventory at the selected nodes, calculating the inventory of the bundle based on the inventory of the component SKUs.

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

Allows business users to see and manage inventory in the bundles in the same way that they sell items.

This has an impact on the fulfilment manager's ability to effectively do their job, as they cannot see the available inventory of a bundle sku without multiple tedious queries. This process is prone to human error as we have to search the bundle components in OMS separately and they have to account for component quantity. Bundles have been a core part of OMS for many years, and this should just work in BUC as well.
