Alternative Itemgroup or multiple BOM

We have BOM for our products where there are multiple alternative components. For example in a BOM, there are 5 alternatives for component A and 7 for component B.

The choice of the component depends on customer choice. However variant configuration is not in scope.

Therefore how should we setup the BOMs for such products.

    Hello Abhijit ,

    Variant Configuration is ideal for this scenario .

    There is an SSCUI ' Define BOM Selection' where you can maintain a priority list for a BOM usage where if component A was picked , the BOM of Usage Production is picked first , then Sales so you could have different BOMs for the same material but i dont know how the customer is able to pick which BOM they want

    Id recommend VC if possible

    Best Regards
