    Hi

    Sales BOM will be used for sales order purpose.You can not use sales BOM for production planning purpose.

    EX;- In sales scenario:

    like computer trading, you are trading the desktops.

    Instead of selling main computer (Monitor, hard disc, processor....etc) and mouse seperately.

    you can have sales BOM with main computer as header & component as mouse.

    Sales order can be created for maincomputer . Then mouse also can be selected at delivery . ofcourse lot of other nsetting like suitable item category in dsales order is reqd.

    where as Planning BOM , to produce a computer you can have planning BOM eloborately.

    Hope it is clear..

    Hi All,

    Production Bill of Material

    Describes a finished product made up of different quantities of different components. During a production process, the components are turned into the finished product. The production process could be a manufacturing, assembly, packaging, or other sort of process. Components can be physical items (such as a screw or a wooden board) or virtual objects (such as one hour's work).

    Sales Bill of Material

    Describes a finished product that is assembled and is about to be sold. The difference between an assembly bill of material and a sales bill of material is that only the finished product appears as a single item in the sales order for an assembly bill of material, whereas both the finished product and the components appear as separate items in the sales order for a sales bill of material.

    When displaying a Sales BOM in documents, the user can choose whether to display price and total for parent item only or to display prices of child items as well.

    Reward if useful.

    Regards,
