Chalanging: Alt material definition in BOMs

Hi Gurus,

When an alt material is defined in BOM then is it possible to set the priority of the materials i.e. for example a material-X qty in BOM is 1Nos and i have defined the alt material-Y for it. When i creates Material Reservation for the asssembly wrt BOM(in which X-material is used) for qty-100.

Assume the X-Materil stock is 20 and Y- material stock is in a large qty.

In materia reservation the X-material should be reserved 20 and the rest should be reserved with material-Y.

But currently, i have to define some probability check like-100% availibilty etc and in that case if 100% stock for X-material is not available then Y-material is 100% reserved.

pls do the needful.

<b>Reward points will be rewared to everyone.</b>

Thanks & Regards,

sanjayc

    Sanjay,

    I dont know if you are using a Discrete Industries solution, or SCM, but if you are, you should look at using Supersession Chains. This functionality will look at stock status of all materials in the chain. Plus the functionality is more sophisticated and will allow interchange in the PRs and POs etc.
