    Hi

    t-code <b>OS32</b> Alternative BOM Determination

    Alternative BOM item

    Item used as an alternative to one or more BOM items. MRP plans alternative material components according to usage probability.

    Alternative items in a BOM that belong together are assigned to an alternative item group.

    Alternative items are selected automatically according to:

    Priority

    Strategy

    Usage probability

    Go to CS01/CS02 enter u r Higer level item and after giving inputs like usage ,plant enter

    U can create many alt BOM's

    While u process the BOM in sales order pop up window will come wher u can select u r Required BOM among alternatives.

    Hope it will help u out

    Hi,

    Check the field Alternative bom in CS01

    Alternative BOM

    Identifies one BOM in a BOM group.

    Procedure

    When you create a BOM, the system creates the first alternative.

    If you want to create more BOMs for the same material (multiple BOM), you have two options for assigning the alternative:

    If you do not make an entry, the system determines the next unused alternative. This value is displayed in the message line and set as a default.

    You assign an alternative. The system checks whether this already exists.

    HI Velmurugan.,

    HI.,

    This is the consept of BOM please go through

    if buy a PC(Non-Branded), billing will be done for each item which is knows subitem level pricing.

    if itz Branded PC-billing will be for total PC-is main item level pricing.

    Config:

    i)- if itz for Branded PC- ( Main item level pricing)

    u should create PC as main material with Item cat group-ERLA

    Monitor,Mouse,key-as subitems with item cat group-NORM

    CPU- Subitem consists of componenets ,so create CPU - as mainitem with item cat group-ERLA

    Now Create components,like

    RAM,

    HDD

    Mother BOard

    Processor----


    all components with item cat group-NORM

    create BoM- CS01

    a)- PC as mainitem ,

    include Monitor,Mouse,key & CPU as subitems with respecitve qtty.

    b)-Create BoM-CS01- CPU as mainitem

    include

    RAM,

    HDD

    Mother BOard

    Processor -


    as subitems with respecitve qtty.

    maintain item cat determination:

    OR+ERLA=TAQ----


    Rel for delievery/pricing/billing & strucure scope should be-B- Explode multilevel BoM.

    ORNORMTAQ=TAE---Not rel for billig/pricing & only delivery allowed without AC.

    maintain the condition record for mainitem VK11-PC only.

    stock will be reduced from main item from the inventory only .

    maintain the stock for main item only

    Similarly ,

    in Non Branded PC's ,its Subitem level pricing

    small changes, main item -item cat gruop will be LUMF.

    like

    PC(Non Branded)- LUMF

    subitems -NORM

    CPU-LUMF

    OR+LUMF=TAP (rel for billing/del-to confirm the order qtty,as it has the control in structure scope-B-explode multi level Bom)

    ORNORMTAP=TAN( rel for billing/pricing/del)

    maintain the condition record for mainitem VK11-for all subitems.

    stock will be reduced from sub item from the inventory only .

    stock should maintain for all subitems

    APART FROM T HAT.,

    when we create a condition record in CS01 BOm for the particular material is created and when we want some other additional BOMs for that material in change mode of CS02 we create some other BOMs,

    so when we raise a sales order we can select the appropriate BOM and deliver the goods,

    MRP runs for the materials on which you raise the sales order only

    REWARD if helpfull

    Thanks & Regards
