To all Experts,

This is regarding the bom explosion in subcontracting P.O(scenerio).Scenerio prob. is explained as follows -

1) I have an assembly which includes the semifinish & raw materials.

2) By cs11 it explpodes whole BOm

3) When i made P.O. for job work order(subcon.), in mateial data view it displys only the semifinish components(i.e. component or explode bom) ,but not the raw,which we want to send to vendor.

so due to above,how we can determine, what the material we are sending to vendor?

In short i want to explode the bom in po,in which it displys the semifinish as well as its raw.

So please suggest a propper solution for above query.

Hoping suggestion quickly

Thanks in advance

    R u sending a the materials for finished product, in BOM u have to enter the deatils which u have to send to SC vendor.

    it may be one SFG, 2 RM, 1 PM materisls, so u have to enter all the materials in BOM list.

    1.Check the BOM for Finished product in CS02. It should contain both Semifinished product & raw material.

    2.The item category L has to be maintained for both the components.

    3.Check the validity period also in the BOM.

    Hi Manish,

    Your problem is interesting.

    As I understand you have a multi level BOM that has SFGs in it, and this causes problem to you since SAP wants to use these SFGs as component for subcontracting.

    I do not know what is the exact solution for this, but I'm writing down my ideas:

    - you can create an alternative BOM for the F-30 material where the SFG componets are defined (only in the BOM, not in material master) as phantom assies (CS01/CS02 > menu > Goto > Item - on basic data tab you can define it).

    - other solution might be to create an alternative BOM where the parent material is the F-30 material, and the children are the raw materials to be provided to your sc-vendor.

    You can create a production version for this alternative BOM and you can assign it (production version) to the purchasing info record. So, SAP will use this alternative BOM for external procurement.
