Alternative Item in Production Order

Hello Guru

Can I use Alternative Item in this scenario in SAP B1 9.1

We generally buy same material form different suppliers. The material is the same but because it is bought from different suppliers it is bought under different material code.

So if the Production Order is created with Material A and we run out of Material A. However I have material B in Stock which I can use.

Can I change from Material A to Material B in the production Order without duplicating the production order.

    You are created BOM in two alternatives material A and B for same material code but component or qty. are changes.and maintain production version for alternative 1. and alt.2 in c223.

    go to CO01 -enter material,plant order type

    and go to Function( menu screen)>read pp master data>to select production version which alt. components necessary to you.

    Hi Chetan,

    Please search before you post a question.

    You can use alternate item group in BOM, which will work based on availability of the material.

    Hope this will be helpful.

      Hello Solomon

      Thanks for your answer.

      As mentioned in my question I am using SAP B1 9.1 and hence I am not using SAP PP or SAP MM
