Assigment of alternative items in Routing

Hello All,

In a BOM, Material A and B are alternative items with same item no. (grp-01,prior -1, strategy-1, usage prob A=100, B=0).

In routing, material A is assigned to operation 0010 and B assigned to operation 0020.

But when prod order is created, A and B both shows that they are assigend to same operation (either 0010 or 0020 whichever is assigned last).

Please say me why it is not assigned correctly.

    Hai ranjit kumar,

    If you use alternative item in BOM, then system will read material component that belong to the same alternative group and strategy as one component. The principle of alternative item is there are few material code that can replace one item component BOM especially for good issue/reservation. In your case, why you assign alternative item B into operation 0020?? It should be in operation 0010. If you want to allocate material A to operation 0010 and allocate material B to operation 0020, then you must not set material B as alternative material A. Remember that alternative item will be substitute for the other when good issue is done. So, the system only propose one operation which component will be allocated.
