Production version without rounting

Dear Expert ;

What I know is that the production version is a combination between a specific bom with a specific routing .

and I thought that I cant create a PV without specifying a routing which is not the case because sap allow me to create a PV without a routing.

so my question is what is the concept behind allowing creation of PV without routing ?.

I found in the community topics that in this case the system will use the setting maintained in OPL8, but actually there is no routing for my material so how I can create PV with only a bom?

Thank you

    Hi Caetano ;

    how r u ?

    U mean if I don't maintain  a PV system cant select a BOM ?

    so please which solution is better in my scenario :

    the case is : I have a subcontracting material which only a BOM is defined in my plant ( no routing )

    solution one : create a PV without routing for this material

    set selection method filed in MRP view 4 to 2

    solution 2 : dont create a PV

    set selection method in MRP view as blank( selection by order qty )

    specially that when I create a PV without routing , system give as a warning message when cost calculation .

    thank you .

    • Hello

      On your scenario you only need to create a production version if there are several alternatives and you want to select one specific alternative. If this is not the case, you should go for solution 2.

    Basically, a production version without the routing is used to select the BOM.

    On repetitive manufacturing it is not necessary to use a routing to post the backflush and you can still use a production version, to define the production line, select the BOM, etc...
