Material being replaced, by a BOM that includes that material

Interesting twist. I need to take a material and bundle into a BOM. I want the material when entered to be replaced by the BOM, which includes the same material and others. The normal replacement rule is creating a never ending loop of adding the bom over and over which I can see the logic but how do I make the case I need to work.

Material A replaced by Material B (plus material A)

    Hi Kerry,

    Please correct if I am wrong, you want to create a BOM for a material which has that material also?

    Like BOM for material A having components as A,B etc...

    Can this be achieved by making BOM for A and then adding that as "recursion allowed".

    Kerry,

    I would suggest that you maintain such replacement in a custom table and adjust the BOM during explosion in your orders - planned order or production order using BAdI's/enhancements.
