    Hi Maike,

    did you mention the Bulk Material in The components of the BOM ? Then sap will creates A resarvation for the Required material of BOM when ever A Production order is released for The FG material.

    Resarvation is Just an information To the Material Planners About the Requirement of the material.

    resarvation will not have any direct affect on the Material Movements. one resarvation no will holds all the require Materials for a Particular production order with quantities.

    we can create Manual resarvations of a material for Future Purpose.

    • Hi Maike,

      you can delete the reservations. it will not have any impact on any other object. resarvations is just to pass the information about the quantity requirements. other than this they will not have any other use or impact on the business.

      as the standard behaviour system will craete Resarvations for all the components of the BOM. i think you can remove the bulk material from your BOM it will not have any affects on your process.

      Thanks&Regards,

      Venkat.

    Dear both,

    thanks a lot for your explanations, I wasn't sure if I have an issue or not but than I'll leave it like it is....cause we are working within process industrie and for use it´s required to have all components visible within the BOM, even they are marked as Bulk material.

    Thanks
