    Hi Swapnil,

    You can set "Selection Method" in MRP4 view as 1 - Selection by explosion date. Once done, go to OS32 and make an entry of that material, plant usage , current date along with BOM Alternative you want to use (say Alt 2). Save the changes.

    Next time when you run MRP system will pick BOM Alt 2 for that material.

    Hello

    You should create a production version for the material, where alternative 2 is defined. Then, you must change the BOM selection method on the material master, to select it according to the production version.

    Hi Swapnil,

    As suggested by Caetano you have to maintain the PV in the material master MRP4

    if you maintain the 3 PV's with 3 different dates according to dates system will plan your materials

    similarly if you have alternative BOM's

    while converting planned order to production order system will populate PV list to select the BOM
