What is the impact if BOM levels are increased?

What is the impact if BOM levels are increased?

Does it affect the system performance?If yes, how to we measure the relation between levels of BOM & System performance.

Is there any standard or best practises for BOM level especially for prime products like trucks etc?

    Hello

    Are you planning to increase the number of BOM levels using phantom assemblies? How many new levels will you have?

    If so, it can affect negatively the system performance when changing BOMs, since system checks where the phantom assembly is used to set the planning file.

    It may also increase the number of entries in table RESB and, since this table is always a bottle neck for performance, you may observe performance issues in the future.

      Currently we are having close to 17 levels in our BOM,we would like to reduce the levels of BOM.

      So wanted to understand the best practice followed in terms of optimum BOM level followed.
