BOM explosion possible in PM order?



we're switching from using PS networks to PM orders for specific installation work and would like to know how to work with material BOM's in PM.

In PS networks (CJ20N, CN22) we have a button to explode the material BOM in the network. After we've done that the full list of materials is shown in the component overview. The user may update the required quantities before the material requirements are released to MM.

Is there a similar option in PM order maintenance (IW32)? We are able to include the BOM-material in the component list of the order, but we're not able to explode this into the detailed list of material items. I imagine it is possible to do this in MRP, but we would like to have the user do it, in an IW32 screen, before it is released to MM (or MRP).

The BOM's are not equipmentBOMs or anything specific to PM. They're simple material BOM's, usage type 3 "universal".

Thx in advance for any suggestions!
