    Debasish,

    When you want to create a BOM copying from another, generally you must be a user and must be knowing which is the similar material which can be copied.

    When you are copying from the original BOM, you can select materials which are needed to the new BOM material, also after the copy is done you can change the quantity or delete that item also.

    Regards,

    Dear,

    First you are enetering material and plant of BOM to be created, in copy screen you enter the material and plant form which you want to copy the material BOM

    example

    Material A in plant 0001 is existing BOM

    Copy function can be used for

    Case 1 create BOM for a Material B and plant 0001. Now you want to copy from Material A plant 0001.

    Here you use the copy frumction and enter material A and plant 0001.

    Once you entrer you will see the items of material A/plant 0001, you can select all items or you can select some of them and click on copy, then system will take you to BOM of B in plant 0002 and items of B. here you can delete/add/change the qty, items whatever and save it...so that Material B BOM willbe created. Nothin will happen to material A BOM

    Case 2 create BOM for a Material B and plant 0002. Now you want to copy from Material A plant 0001.

    Here you use the copy frumction and enter material A and plant 0001.

    Once you entrer you will see the items of material A/plant 0001, you can select all items or you can select some of them and click on copy, then system will take you to BOM of B in plant 0002 and items of B. here you can delete/add/change the qty, items whatever and save it...so that Material B BOM willbe created. Nothin will happen to material A BOM

    I hope you got it

    Debashish,

    One you press the copy from button then it will prompt you to the material code & plant details,once you select & press enter you will get all items copied into your new material code,here you have to select the components(item) which all you really need to copy to the new one,once you do this then again in the subsequent screen you can change the quantity for each item & save the BOM

    Hope the above is understandable

    Reward points if useful

    Regards,

    Debashish,

    While copying the BOM, when you copy from a material and plant combination, it will display you a list of available materials in the BOM. You need to selexct these materials (rows) and click on the copy icon inthe top left.

    The items will be thus copied and your BOM will be created for new matereial. You can alwyas change the quantities here in the BOM befor saving.
