    Hi Kamal,

    When you process an object (such as a BOM item) using a particular change number for the first

    time, the system generates a new processing status (change status).If your organization does not use parameter effectivity, these changes simply have time-related validity, which means that a change status's validity extends from its valid-from date to immediately before the validfrom date of the change status following.

    However, if you do use parameter effectivity, you can also make a change status's validity dependent on other criteria, such as serial number or customer.

      hi heijo

      I may not be able to give fully satisfactory answer but this may help you in solving the problem

      SAP gives two parameter effectivity one as DATE and other as SERIAL NO

      apart from choosing parameter effectivity for change on material, you have link these changes with release key then assign them priorties and rank

      after which system check the changes on material in following manner and decide the valid change

      1) change with release key

      2) change with higher priority

      3) change with higher rank

      after this process system assign change to material

      When you are doing change wrt SERNO then system checks only release key and then change with higher rank gets implemented

      according your other processes get effected
