BOM containing NLAG component

Hi All,

Our client wishes to add a material of type NLAG to a Bill of Material. However they want the NLAG to be set up for only the Basic Data views.

When I attempt to add the NLAG to the BOM, I am receiving the error message "Material x is not maintained in plant Y".

Can anybody tell me if it is possible to add a NLAG with only Basic Data views to a BOM?

Thanks in advance,

Micheal

    Hi Micheal,

    As far as I know you have to extend your material for plant 'Y' and only after that can you add it to a plant-specific BOM.

    NALG material can be part of GROUP BOM with out plant views... but when you are assigning to a plant it has to be with atleast one plant view..not necessaly MRP view, but purchase view is must if you enter the item cat as non stock(N).

    Dear ,

    As far as Error message consider : material does not exist in that plat so you need to extend it.

    Hi,

    Generally it is not possible to create material as a component in a BOm without material master record but in one case it is possible if the material is non stock item, hence you can directly create bom without mat master for Non stock item.It is ordered and obtained only for the particular order, it will not be stored in any storage locations. Any how it should be defined in customizing Define material attributes.in material management.And regarding the NLAG you can create the Basic views for client in the mat master,

    • Hi,

      What Vachanala said is that you can insert a non stock item without material master into the BOM. In this case there's no point in speaking about the material type and views since it is only text.

      So it won't solve the problem of your 'NLAG' component except you want to order your material w/o material master.

      I'm afraid you cannot add a 'stock item' or 'non-stock item' to your plant-specific BOM if the component's material master record hasn't got any specific view for that plant.

    Hai,

    Forgotten to explain purchasing data, you can maintain purchasing data for non-stock items in the bill of material only for costing purposes. Hope this will solve your problem.

    Dear,

    In response to your thread it is noted that customisation for Bom item category, go to os24 T code Check whether you have given '." (dot) means optional entry for mat No under N column, Inventory blank and all other blank except for quantity sign '.' anditem cat sequence control 3 enter and check if you have still doubts please come back.

    Note: You cannot change the item category after you have created the item. You can only correct an entry for the item category by deleting the item and then creating new one.
