Exploding BOM in sales order only in case KIT-Header is not available

Hi guys,

I am trying to setup a kit-to-order process where we only explode the BOM in sales order in case there is no stock available for the kit-header.

In standard setup (which is working fine already) the setting to explode BOM or not is based on the item category. I am thinking about an enhancement to determine item category based on availability check for kit-header in user exit but was hoping to get a hint here about how to solve it via means of standard.

thanks a lot in advance!

The business requirement is not clear to me. When you say, the end customer places an order for kit-header and if it is not available, you will deliver the related components. Normally, exploding BOM in SAP is for pricing. If the pricing is set at header level, then, BOM will explode without pricing at component level and vice-versa. In your case, why were you looking for stock availability. Need more clarification

...the final question is about whether to create a picking-relevant delivery item for the header of the KIT or for the components only (and fulfill the kitting process later).

So in case the material of the header itself is available I do not want to create delivery items for the components at all (so the BOM should not explode at all) but in case it is not available the BOM should explode so that I get sub-items based on which we would later create picking warehouse tasks.

Hope that clarifies!?
