    2)Material Planning in Maintenance order

    3)It is used for structuring a technical object

    A BOM is used in PM to assign spares for a technical object. BOM provides you an overview of all components that make up an Equipment . The BOM is also used for material planning, and you can perform material planning when creating a maintenance task list or Work Order.

    When you create a work order with an Equipment as reference object, you can access its BOM from the order component screen and assign an item to the order. The system generated material reservation/ PR based on the item category.

    If you can elaborate your problem a bit more in detail I may be able to provide more specific answer.

    Hope it helps.
