what is the function of an alternate BOM


Hi ,

Could any body tell me how is the alternate BOM selected and how does it affect the functionality of a product.

Say for eg ,for one material ,alt BOM is 3 and for another its 1 and they both are linked to one document.So what would happen if I change the alt BOM of the material.
