PR restriction wrt to BOM quantity

Hi all,

I have one requirement from my client that If a BOM is assigned to the WBS and the PR is raised against that WBS manually through ME51n, then system should restrict if PR quantity for material exceeds the quantity mentioned in WBS BOM. Is there any standard configuration for this or shall I go with any enhancement.

Also is there any way to have the BOM automatically being displayed in the WBS component overview after doing CN33.

Thanks.

Asheesh

    You will need an enhancement to limit the PR quantity when someone is manually creating a PR.

    CN33 will transfer the BOM components and quantities to the Network Activities. What do you mean by display the BOM?

    Hi Asheesh,

    Projects budgets are for this very purpose & If you copy Plan cost to Budget(IMPCC3) after BOM transfer, budget in $$$ are only to the extent materials in BOM.

    Ofcourse this will be at 'Gross' level for all material in WBS, hence there is still risk that something will be procured extra.

    Hi,

    I dont want to use budget here as budget will be for all costs, here I want to restrict only material cost.

    I tried BOM transfer through CN33, but the system is creating reservation when I assign BOM in the network for L category even if the procurement status is Res/PR set to Never.

    Also I dont want to create any type of reservation or PR when assigning components to network.

    The assignment we are doing is only for validating the Network material quantity while creating PR. If the PR qty. exceeds the components in network, system should not allow. Also I cannot find any network Components table. RESB is there but that is updating after reservation

    .

    Is there any solution for this.

    Or shall we create one interface and Z table to create BOM against WBS which will validate with PR qty.

    Waiting for the reply .

    Thanks.

      When you create a component attachment to a NWA a reservation will be created, but if you have selected "...Never" the Movement Allowed will not be set on the reservation. This reservation will not be visible to MRP.

      How are you creating PRs if you have set the components to Never?

    Hi,

    Basing on configuration strategy, system creates either reservation/PR etc when components are being added to system either CN33 or manual assignment.

    If you are not interested to see the either Reservation/PR to show up, then change configuration settings "Maintain network profiles - OPUU".

    Your requirement is not gelling with me, sorry to say that. What is the purpose of creating manual PR? and why do you want to introduce enhancement to keep tab of quantity check?

    In my opinion utilize the standard functionality rather than going for customization.

    Thanks,

      Hi Asheesh,

      Restriction of creation of PR can be controlled by configuring strategy as I told you. But coming to generation of Reservation number, this is an internal number and we can not restrict this one. Please correct me if I am wrong.

      You can find these ones in table RESB and MB25. You can key in material component number and see the assigned networks table RESB. did you try.

      If you want to go with your existing procedure then implement enhancement CNEX0009 (wild guess might helpful to you but you can explore the correct one taking help from ABAPer) to meet your business requirements.

      Thanks,
