    When there is a problem during the MRP execution, system triggers an exception message to inform the planner that something is wrong and these exceptions can be displayed on transactions MD04 or MD05.

    On transaction OS23, you can select one of these exception messages to be displayed if MRP tries to explode a BOM with a specific status. This is useful to inform the planned that the BOM is still under construction, for example. Generally, statuses S1 and S2, which are related to BOMs are used.

    You can use Transaction OS23 to maintain the exception message for the BOM status, when the BOM status is used in material BOMs and the exception message is displayed in the MRP list accordingly.

    For example 'Inactive' to a status 'Inactive with exception message'

    For more details please refer 367614 - Inactive order BOM vs material BOM
