    Can you let us know why you want both of them to be selected?

    If it is the need, then why create an alternative?

      Hi,

      You can make alternate BOM selection by following procedure :

      For BOM Alternative Selection you need to maintain any of the following settings in Material Master --->

      MRP-4 View->BOM Explosion / Dependent Requirements->Selection Method :

      Method for Selecting Alternative Bills of Material

      Indicator determining the selection of the alternative BOM when requirements are exploded in material requirements planning.

      Use

      With Selection by order quantity, the system chooses the alternative BOM into whose lot size range the order quantity falls. The lot size range and area of validity of the BOM apply.

      With Selection by explosion date, the system chooses the alternative BOM into whose area of validity the date falls according to the setting BOM via dates.

      With Selection by production version, the system chooses the alternative BOM defined in the valid production version. The lot size range and area of validity of the production version apply.

      With Selection only by production version, the system chooses the alternative BOM defined in the valid production version. The lot size range and area of validity of the production version apply.

      If no production version is found, no production orders or process orders can be created.

      Hope this helps.

      Revert if any doubt.

      Regards,

      Tejas

    Hi,

    As Vivek told, If you need both of them together then there is no need of alternate BOM.You need to maintain components E & F in single BOM only of B.

    Further if it is required to have both BOM components together in certain conditions only then you can go for Variant BOM by maintaining OD for components and hence you can use single BOM only.

    However pls clarify your requirement in more details to fulfill your requirement.

    Regards,

    Tejas
