MDG 8.0 Materials - Production Version getting copied while creating a material with reference

Hi All,

We have recently upgraded from MDG 6.1 to MDG 8.0. We are facing the following situation in the upgraded invironment:

When a material is copied from another, not only is the plant specific information being copied over, but the MRP Area data copies over (that is a good thing) but the Production Version also copies over!

The problem with this is that a production version is the linkage between a material a BOM and a recipe. In this case, the Production Version of the NEW material uses the BOM and recipe of the old material. Typically, every material we produce has its own BOM and its own recipe and we do not use a common BOM or recipe for multiple materials.

Is this standard MDG 8.0 behavior, also can it be configured to not copy from referenced material or is customization the only choice?

Have you already searched for OSS notes, this one looks promising from the subject line, unfortunately the creator did not take much effort to explain more details: 2319722 - Copy Functionality for Production Version does not work correctly
