    Maintaining the Initial Screen for Creating a Variant BOM

    How to maintain the initial screen for creating a variant BOM:

    From the bills of material menu, choose Material BOM ® Create.

    You see the Create material BOM initial screen.

    Enter the data for the variant BOM you want to create.

    The material for which you want to create a variant of an existing BOM cannot have a BOM with the same usage in the selected plant.

    – In the Material field, enter the material for which you want to create a variant.

    – In the Plant field, enter the plant in which you want the variant to be valid.

    The BOM that you want to use to create a variant must exist in this plant.

    You can extend the area of validity of the BOM later on by using the Create plant allocation function.

    – Enter the Usage.

    If a default parameter is defined for the Usage field in your user master, you see this value. Otherwise you see the usage that was last entered in this field.

    When you select a usage, please note that the usage determines which item statuses you can set. This means that you can only maintain certain indicators (for example, relevant to production, relevant to costing) at item level.

    The material that you want to use to create a new variant in the selected plant must already have a BOM with the usage that you enter here.

    – Do not make an entry in the Alternative field, for a variant BOM.

    In a variant BOM, the alternative is not relevant to the user. The alternative is only required internally for storing the variant BOM. For this reason, if you do make an entry in the Alternative field, the system ignores your entry.

    Enter the validity data for the variant BOM.

    See also:

    Maintaining the Create Material BOM Initial Screen

    If you create the variant with reference to a change number, the entire BOM group (this includes all variants of the variant BOM) has a history requirement.

    This means that you can only change or extend the BOM if you enter a valid change number.

    If you want to check the data you enter, choose Check entries.

    Do not confirm your entries by choosing ENTER, because this creates a simple BOM.

    As per my understanding of Subordinate Item, if it refer to dependent item then Sales BOM can be used if the combination is the same always.

    If Subordinate item cost is covered in main item & subordinate item is to go as free goods, the item category can be manuall changed to TANN in sales order.

    Hi Nam,

    Please go through the T.code VOV8, select your Order type, go in to details of the order there is a field called "Sub-item increment" at Number Systems tab (Starting of the screen) please enter the data in that field.

    I hope it will help you,

    Regards,

    Murali.
