Alternative BOM in Production Order

Hi PP Experts,

I have a small issue which is like this:

I have two Alternative BOM for Material "A".

When I create production order it displays both Alt Bom for selection.

When I select the second Alt BOM, in production order it still reads the First Alt BOM.

Please advice.

Regards

Mohan

    Hi Mohan,

    I suggest if you have two alternate BOM for a material, you can use the production versions and assign the same for the material in Material Master MRP4 view.

    Create Production Versions 01 and 02 and assign the alt BOM 1 for the PV 01 and 02 alt bom for PV 02.

    Goto SPRO : Production -> Shop Floor Control -> Define Order type dependent paramters ( Tcode : OPL8) : Define the Production Version Slection either 1 for manual and 2 for automatic. (if you use automatic system will select the version based on the material master selection method )

    regards

      Dear RadhaKrishna,

      We are not using Prod Ver because for a material there are many alt routings.

      My problem is that in the production order while selecting the BOM, i get the pop-up asking me to select the relevent BOM, then I select sat Alt 2, the system still selects Alt 1.

      I dont know why this is happening.

      Pls Help.

    Hi,

    If you want the production order to read the second BOM, In CS02 select the other alternative and deactivate the BOM status in the QUANTS/LONG text tab..

    For the other BOm, Vice versa

      Hi

      Best way of maintainig Alternatives for BOM is maintaing Production version or maintaining lot size procedure and validity period in the BOM.

      If you opt for production version , then maintain settins in the order type dependent parameters as mannual production version selection.
