    Construction Type is used for identify the equipments having similar construction of materials.

    For examples: Identical Mechanical seal used in different pumps.

    A BOM can be linked to a technical object in two ways:

    By direct assignment: directly assigned BOM

    If you create a bill of material directly for a technical object, it is assigned directly. If all the technical objects are identical in terms of structure, the BOM items are valid for all the allocated technical objects.

    By indirect assignment: indirectly assigned BOM

    For technical objects that have a material BOM - if you enter a material number in the Construction type field of a master record, the material BOM is indirectly assigned to the object. This is a good idea when a company has several identical technical objects grouped under one material number.
