    Hi jagdish

    Fixed quantity in BOM means. Always it will create proposal for that particulare quantity only irrespective of the order quantity

    For ex if you say for MAT A in BOM the quantity is 1 No and if you tick fixed quantity indicator. The system will always create proposal for 1 No irrespective of the BOM header quantity.

    This will be useful to create fixed quantity for a order for inspection or other purpose.

    If you want MRP to be exploded as per the BOM header quantity. Use alternate unit of purchase.

    Hope this is clear

    Create 1 more UOM for conductor to length dimension. Change the base qty for conductor in BOM. Dont put fix qty. Define the relation in BOM. In MRP run system will behave as u r expecting
