BOM (bill of material) download from R/3 to CRM

Hi all,

I created a BOM (Bill of material) in R/3. I have the following questions.

1. When a BOM is created in R/3 does it get downloaded automatically via delta download?

or Do we need to manually download the created BOM via download object "BOM".

In the customer place, I could see the BOM in the flow with the error. The error displayed is


Relationship type STRSET for source object type BUS1178 cannot be maintained

You tried to use the product 270-048-001 as the header or component product of a structured product. However, configurable products are not allowed as header or component products.

Validation error occurred: Module COM_PRODUCT_MAT_VALIDATE, BDoc type PRODUCT_MAT.


What I understand is

1. The product is not a structured product but it is a configured product and hence in CRM validation it fails to download the newly created BOM. However I checked in R/3 system in transaction 'cs03' and found the column OD in tab "Material" is unchecked, Which means it is not a configurable product in R/3.

Also could you please clarify these doubts too.

1. What is the difference between structure product and set product.

2. what does the field 'CONFIG' means in table 'COMM_PRODUCT' when it is set to 'X'.

3. How do we know a product is a configurable product or a structured product in CRM. Which table in CRM contains this information.

4. Do we need to make some special settings in customizing 'SPRO' to download BOM. If so please let me know.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

    Hi Geetha,

    1. I think BOM's cannot be downloaded, but need to be setup seperately in CRM product configuration.

    2. configflag means that the product in configurable and provides the link to the PME (product modeling environment)in the IPC.

    3. The information is present in the knowledge base (probably not on tables in the CRM system).

    Kind regards,
