Exploding Latest Alternative BOM

Dear Gurus,

I have two alternative BOMs of same material. They have same validity period and lot size. I dont want to use Production Version. Now, when I create a production order no BOM is exploded, the system throws an information message saying: "No suitable BOM alternative could be determined"

I am missing on some configuration. What I want is that the latest BOM should be picked up, i.e. alternative 2 should be exploded by the system in production order.

Thanks

Geravine

    Dear,

    BOM is not exploded in the following situations:

    - No BOM is effective:

    -- On the explosion date and in the given area of validity

    For the given effectivity parameters

    - The BOM has a deletion indicator.

    - The BOM is a multiple BOM, and has no alternative that matches the lot size for your required quantity.

    - No BOM matches the selection criteria of the BOM application you selected.

    - This is possible in the following situations, for example:

    -- The application selects a specific alternative on the explosion date you require. The material master record supports alternative determination by Explosion date.

    If the specified alternative is not valid on the explosion date, the BOM is not exploded.

    You can Define Alternative Determination for Multiple BOMs in OS32

    Please try and come back.

    Regards,

    Dear Geravine,

    Check whether Both the alternatives BOM's

    whether they are active or inactive

    if u want 2 alternattive BOM

    then make alternative 1 BOM as inactive

    then system automatically picks ur alternative 2 BOM

    Regards

    Dear Geravine,

    1.Check whether a suitable BOM selection Id is maintained in OPPQ for the plant.

    2.Check whether the alternative determination settings is proper in OS32.
