SAP PP: Consumables for BOM

Dear PP experts,

Good day to you all.

A client has got one scenario.

Its a discrete manufacturing company. They want to prepare a material BOM. Also it pertains consumables like WELDING RODS, LPG GAS for cutting etc etc.

For ex:

A detail material list is maintained in BOM for Semi finished goods/Finished Goods and Work centers for the SFG/FG are let say Drilling, Welding, Cutting etc etc.

When the Raw material goes for Cutting operation it requires LPG GAS and the same shall be WELDED (joined with welding process let say it requires TWO NOS welding rods) with the another cutting material for which it requires WELDING RODS.

Can anyone let me know how to and where to give all the consumables in BOM to do the process.

    Materials which are consumed during production can be added in the your case LPG Gas also can be added in the BOM..

    Materials which are not consumed during production can be created as PRT's and to be added to operations in the your case cutting material or welding rod ( of course your question is not clear)

    Hope this helps

    It depends upon the value and the requirement, if you can segregate the total consumption of LPG and other consumables on the base qty of various SFG/FG like for producing 1 SFG, this much LPG and other consumables are required then you can assign in BOM, Also value wise it should be like so that it wont give error while executing the SCE.

    As Standard practice since we cannot pragmatically calculate the quantities of consumable per production then it should be issue to production cost center.
