BOM Base quantity

Dear all PP gurus,

i m having one FERT of bae quantity 25 kgs in its BOM

i have created the bom for this fert with for example three components

A=10 kgs

B=5 kgs

C=10kgs

upto this point its ok....but when i enter more component say D of some qnty.

system is allowing me to make the entry in that components list

..As already the BOM of 25 kgs is added with A,B,C

So is there any setting so that system restricts me to add more components as soon as

components qty equal to base qty..?

thanks in advance

ravi

    Ravi,

    Standard SAP does not support the requirement.

    The quantity of the component never have relation to the base quantity of the FG.

    You establish the relation in the BOM. But you can't link the base quantity of FG in BOM & component quantity.

    But you can think of available user exit to check out if your scenario will be mapped.

    Even with this you are successful to map this then to at production order level you can change the component. So no significance at all.

    Hope this helps you.

    Hi

    system wont calculate the base quantity as you understood,

    base quantity is meant to say how many components are need to produce the product .

    ex: if u need to produce car , one of the component is tyre , so for tyre 4 base qty is need, that we maintianed in the bom.

    Dear Ravi,

    As per your BOM structure the meaning for the base quantity is ,say X is your header material which

    you produce and for producing 25 kg of X you need 10 kg of A,5 kg of B and 10 Kg of C ,likewise if you

    want to produce 50 kg of X you will need 20kg of A,10 kg of B and 20 kg of C and it does not

    mean your header base quantity = sum of the component's quantity.

    There is no such condition like that.

    Come back with your queries.

    Regards

    Ravi,

    There is no standard check available to check sum of component quantity is not exceeding base quantity.

    Hope your scenario is of some Blend based Manufacturing like Lubricants, I am not sure whether we have any user exit to perform this check...lf I find one, i shall post it here,

    Regards,

    Dear,

    I think you taking Base quantity in wrong way 25 kgs means to manufacture finished good you required component A = 10 B 05 and c =10 kg It does mean that you don't required fourth component You can have 50 components to manufacture the BOM. then how much quantity required of all component to manufacture the FG.

    Even thou you can have component like A=50 kg C= 100 kg and B= 45 kg also system will accept it as you required this much quantity to manufacture the FG in proportion of base quantity.

    Component quantity means = The quantity of a component needed to produce the base quantity of a product or assembly.

    Base quantity means = Quantity to which all component quantities in a BOM relate.

    Hope clear to you.

    Regards,
