Does APO product substitution support sales BOM?

Please help me to clear below doubts
1) Sales order is having sales BOM and one of the product in sales BOM is not available. Product substitution is maintained for it in APO.
2) when we place an order at BOM header, BOM gets exploded. The item for which product substitution is maintained and there is no stock for main item, APO doesn't substitute the material with another material.

Does APO product substitution support sales BOM?

    Hi Chetan,

    Can you please more details on this?

    For which material did you maintain product substitution rule? I am assuming it is for component and not for header.

    For component, yes you can trigger product substitution. Just check the settings again, it works same as normal product substitution.

    Hi mohit,

    thanks for your reply. Standard SAP product substitution doesn't work for sales BOM functionality for components of BOM. I debugged standard functionality and observed that the logic kills it the moment it finds it as Sales BOM component. We had to make code change in order to make it work for our requirement.
