Maintenance Assembly (IBAU) - Task list & work order assignment to explode its BOM items

I am looking to improve the current functionality to manage BOMs in Plant Maintenance. We use IBAU (Maintenance assemblies) to structure equipment and select stock items on work orders & task lists. This works well when it comes to structure equipment and select stock items on the work orders and tasks lists. However I think this can be improved, if the Maintenance Assembly would have the same functionality as the MM/PP phantom material. A phantom material can be assigned to a production order its depending BOM item components get exploded, creating material reservations for its Childs. If the IBAU would behave as the Phantom assembly: - The IBAU material could be assigned to the PM task list, and then transferred to the work order, exploding the BOM in the work order material requirements. BOM master data administration will decrease.. as maintaining the BOM would update its referenced task lists - The IBAU material could be assigned to the work order components and then its BOM exploded, creating material requirements for its Childs... Does anybody has the same requirement? Thoughts ? Suggestions on how to improve this process?

    Hi Alberto,

    The only difference that in the order of PP, you will use all the components to produce the product, then the system explodes all components in the order.

    In the order of PM, no necessarily you will use all the components. Then if it explodes all the components automatically, you could be generating reservations without need.

    For this, inside of the order of PM, you can explode the BOM and to choose the components (all if you want to) but no automatically.

    you can have phantom in the BOM (like IBAU)

    Alberto,

    I agree, this functionality would be nice, but as far as I am aware, it does not exist in the PM module.

    User-exit IWO10029 is provided for the inclusion of bill of material in PM/SM order, so you could try developing your own solution.

    There have been a few posts on this topic in the past, but they all come to the same conclusion. Here are a few for reference:
