    Hi,

    A Bill of Material is an complete list of components that make up a finished manufactured product. The Bill of material consists of the item number of each component, quantity required in the manufacture of a component and the unit of measure of the item. Such individual components which make up a manufactured product has a specific name in SAP. They are called Bill of Material Items BOM items. SAP R/3 allows creation of various categories of BOM Bill of Material. Some of the categories of BOM include, document BOM, material BOM, equipment BOM, Sales Order BOM and Functional location BOM

    Sales BOM Implementation

    A bill of material (BOM) describes the different components that together create a product. A BOM for a bicycle, for example, consists of all the parts that make up the bicycle: the frame, the saddle, wheels, and so on.

    Process Flow

    When you enter the material number of a bill of materials that is relevant for sales order processing, the system displays the material that describes the whole bill of materials as a main item. The individual components are displayed as lower-level items.

    There are two ways to process a bill of materials in Sales. Once you have entered a bill of material in a sales order, the system runs pricing, inventory control, and delivery processing at:

    - Main item level if the material is assembled, or

    - Component level if the material is not assembled

    The type of processing used by the system is determined by the item category group that you enter in the material master record for relevant materials.

    Processing at Main Item Level

    If you want the system to carry out pricing, inventory control, and delivery processing at main item level, enter ERLA in the Item category group field of the Sales: sales org. 2 screen in the material master record of the finished product. This means that the components only function as text items and are not relevant for delivery. The following graphic shows how a bill of material is processed at main item level.

    Processing at Component Level

    If you want the system to carry out pricing, inventory control, and delivery processing at the component level, enter LUMF in the Item category group field of the Sales: sales org. 2 screen in the material master record of the finished product. In this case, only the components are relevant for delivery. During processing the system automatically creates a delivery group. The latest delivery date among all the components becomes the delivery date for the entire delivery group.

    Hope this helps you.

    Regards,

    Rakesh

      Hi Kamesh,

      Thanks for your reply... I finally got the configuration.., just wanted to share it so that it might be helpful to some1 else.

      I wanted BOM to explode in the sales order with Pricing at the Header level and Delivery of the sub-items and then in the Invoice only the main Item should appear, so here is wat i did.

      Item category

      Doc typeLUMF-+-= ZTAP

      Doc typeNORM-+ZTAP=ZTAN.

      ZTAP has billing relevance as delivery related billing, and relevant for pricing

      Modified the setting of ZTAN to be not relevant for Pricing.

      Maintained the copy controls and thats it got wat i wanted...

      Thanks alot everyone for the info in all the threads.

      Michelle.
