BOMBOS - Alternative BOMs, different BOM per plant...

Hi Experts,

Are any of you aware of some way to handle different BOMs per plant and alternative BOMs, so that the composition of the substance linked to the material is not overwriten everytime a new BOM enters the worklist in CG37?

For example, some way to create different instances in the composition to manage the different alternatives? Or different substances for different plant BOMs...

Any help will be welcome.

Thanks and regards,

Irene

    Hello Irene,

    There can be two ways to handle it , if I have understood your question correctly.

    1. You may wish to create versions of the BOM's in case you don't want the composition of the substance linked to the material to be overwriten everytime a new BOM enters the worklist in CG37. Here, you may change the substance (i.e material) with new composition without afftecting the rest of the structure. This can be done through SAP engg. change management (ECM). Please refer to t-code CC31 or CC01.

    2. Secondly, if you wish to have plant/site dependent BOM or composition of a material to be manitained, you can use another SAP component i.e Recipe management which is very well integrated with substance of the SAP EHS. Here, you can maintain plant/site dependent master recipes or composition formulas. Please refer to the following help link:

    Hope the information is usefull.

    Regards

    • Hello Irene

      (only as an addon to what has been explained/discussed to far): EH&S is used in the background if you would like to use SAP RM. Therefore answer to your question in my opinion is: yes (you manage materials and compositions in EH&S; the compostion because not of the fact you are using SAP RM but because of other reasons. To my knowledge a further license fee is required to use SAP RM.

      May be Note 140415 could be of interest too. I found it by accident. It explains that you can only EHS standard BOMBOS or SRC/SPRC BOMBOS but not both at the same time.

      Regarding BOMBOS generally: a number of threads in this FORUM deals with this topic; a "cross read" might help: these threads deal with problems in BOMBOS interface etc.

      To my knowledge the functionality of the SRC/SPRC BOMBOS is in some sense "bigger" than standard BOMBOS EH&S (you can do more..)

      With best regards
