    Hi,

    I have similar opinion.I think it is possible by using Work flow.Currently we are using Work flow for Material Master creation. After all the view are maintain, QM person release the Material for the Procurement and Production process.You can follow the similler process but adding one more check to it and that is Creation of BOM.Material should be released only after BOM creation (only for In house Produced Materials).

    Dear Biswanath,

    Do you mean to say the system is allowing you to create a Planned order manually in T code MD11 or is

    the system giving you a planned order after MRP run even if there's no BOM for that product?

    Please clear this .

      Hi,

      As I understand your client want the material as not planned and if the BOM is created they want the material as planned automatically.

      Whether a material is planned or not is controlled by the already suggested MRP type field. So, the existance of BOM cannot control the value of this field.

      My ideas:

      1.

      You client should have a quality / engineering department and they should know when the material is ready for planning. At this moment they should change the MRP type or the material status of the material (you can block the material for planning via the material status as well).

      2.

      Do not change anything, because the PldOrds won't cause confusion since there's an exception message that tells everyone that the material is w/o BOM. Who will convert a PldOrd to PrdOrd if the company is not ready for the production?

      Who is going to check the MRP list of a material that is out of use?

      I think the best solution would be to control this via the material status. Just my opinion.
