Material type DIEN for a software as BOM component

Dear Experts,

I have a scenario wherein an ECU is procured from vendor. It is flashed(read installed) with software internally and sold to customer. So the Finished good is ECU+software. I have defined FG as FERT and ECU as HALB.

I am facing problems to define this software as a BOM component. Few points to be considered:

- There is certain cost involved for software installation which needs to be accounted.

- What UoM I can use for software installation

- What material type shall I use? Can I use DIEN material type? If not then why

- I need the software to be planned via MRP. So that when a procurement proposal is generated, end users get the trigger for installation. Can the reservation created for software be used as trigger for installation?

Please provide your inputs.

Thanks in advance.

    Hello Ashutosh,

    Scenario like this can be treated as part of routing by considering additional activity. In this case the part code is not required for software it is program and not a inventory item. For user convenience you can copy item category like 'text item' and create new one like software. The you can create production order of FG with this component.
