BOM line items deletion regarding

Hi all,

We are creating BOM using T.Code ZCS01, Changing BOM using T.Code ZCS02. These have been created, as the BOM has to be created via Revision level associated with Change number only. For example I had a drawing consisting of 6-items with revision level Nil. Based on Drawing I had created BOM using T.Code ZCS01. Now there is a revision-"SA" (SA= Small A) in drawing and two items have been deleted. Based on revision I am deleting the two items, using T.Code ZCS02. When ever any change in BOM we use to change BOM via Revision level associated with change number.

Here my question is: Wether the procedure we are following for deleting the line item in a BOM is correct or not? If not what is the correct procedure to be followed. I will be thankful for your valuable guidance please.

    Hi Raja,

    The mentioned Z transactions are calling standard transaction in background. Hence it is correct.

    Component change with revision level is absolutely correct. This type of scenario is being used in process industry where change in component is important. As well it should be traceable also. As per the revision level there will be a history regarding the all changes.

    Hence the process is perfect.

    Refer the link for your validation 😊.

    Have you encountered any issue?

      Hi Kiran,

      I thank you for your valuable information, I understood from above that, Deleting BOM line item without Revision level, we cannot track those changes. that is fine. If I delete BOM line item via Revision level associated with change number, will it affect the BOM in any manner. if so, in what way it will affect.

    The procedure which you are following is absolutely correct because If you make changes to a material with reference to a change number, you can assign a revision level to specific change statuses. This allows you to process the objects later with reference to either a change number or a revision level.

    You can refer below document for more understanding on Change numbers and Revision levels Usage of Revision Level for PP Masters -BOM and Routing
