Finished Goods Multilevel BOM Explosion in PP-PS

Hi Gurus,

I have a case in PP-PS integration , and I am searching for advice how to deal with such situation.

In fact, I have one Finished Good A with BOM. The BOM contains components B & C and Assembly D. Finally Assembly D contains components E & F.

I created two WBS elements with network and activities. WBS 1 contains in its activities FG A and components B & C. WBS 2 contains Assembly D and components E & F.

Now I run MRP and I get double planned orders for Assembly D ( One coming from WBS 2 and the second coming from explosion of FG A so it's Under WBS 1). Accordingly I have double requirement for assembly components.

My questions is how to avoid the requirements coming from BOM explosion ( I want to keep management of assembly Under WBS 2 and management of FG A Under WBS 1).

Your help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

    On the BOM for A make the item D not production relevant. Uncheck the box for Production. When A is exploded in MRP it will not create a demand for D.

    You will have to manually issue D to the PP order for A if you want to avoid variances.

    Also, look at creating a WBS BOM for A to avoid messing with the Production BOM.
