Remove BOM components from Production order automatically

Dear all,

I need some help.

My case is there is a Finished goods (Say XYX), its BOM contains component A, B, C, D.

When there is a requirement of XYZ, system will convert this requirement into a Production order with component A, B, C, D. But due to some reason, user would like to remove component C and D from production order. I think we can manually remove them. But user would like to know if there is any configuration or any indicator in material master could achieve the this automatically during conversion from requirement to production order.

Many thanks for your help in advance.

    As you said in your system directly creates production order once it gets the requirement so I don't think use of production version will be suitable.

    Yes if you want to achieve it directly from requirement then you can go for variant configuration. According to your requirement you can punch the demand in SAP & according to your demand & dependencies in your BOM components it will automatically get selected in production order.

    Hello Tin,

    Some Addition from my end..

    As per expert suggested, It is not Possible to remove the component automatically from BOM.

    SAP suggested a BOM component selection in Production order as per business requirement in Production version functionality with Alternative BOM selection.

    You can created 2 Production version with alternative BOM as per your component choice and set the condition in Order type depended parameter OPL8 as Manually Selection of Production Version. So at time of Production order create system give you popup message of selection of Production version and you can select any production version (As per your BOM selection) and create production order.

    This process helpful in both MTS as well as MTO process

    I hope this information helpful to you
