BOM Explosion where Material Type is set to X0 to X9


Hi All,

Trust you are well.

I am finishing of the detailed design for Production Planning and have come across an issue which I was wondering you might be able to help with.

In my design the sales quantities plan in BI will be used as a basis for the production quantity plan. This will then be retracted from BI to COPA and the sent to S&OP. However, I understand that it will not be possible to explode the BOM's in MRP because the MRP type is set to X0 to X9 for all our finished products, hence we will not be able to run simulative MRP in SAP system for Long term planning.

I think this is because the material is already being planned with SAP APO and the system will not allow longterm planning for finished materials in SAP ECC at the same time.

Did you come across something similar? Any ideas, workarounds?
