Strategy for KIT Assembly

Experts,

Have the following situation & need to know if there is a "out of the box" strgy available, if not, how can I solve this:

1. KIT consists of 4 produced finished parts. Forecasts are available on the KIT & blown down to component parts for prodn.

2. KIT (does not exist physically) is not Inventorized, however, is assembled with a dummy oprn when a Sales Ord is recvd.

3. The components of the KIT are all Make to Stock items.

I was looking @ Strgy 59 to handle this, but does not help. Any idea if there is one or how this can be handled?

Appreciate ur inputs

Cheers

    Hi,

    A question back to you... the SO which is created, is it for the KIT (i.e. single line specifying only the kit nos) or is it for the compnents of the Kit (i.e. seperate line for each component?).

    Regards,

    Vivek

    • vivek,

      have tried this out. my issues are:

      1. i dont want to inventorize the KIT - with 50, after the sales ord arrives for the KIT, the plnd ord becomes convertible, even if I have a dummy opern, i'll have to produce it.

      2. Whats ideally reqd is a strgy that will blow the PIR's strght to the KIT parts, not allow me to produce the KIT. So when the Sales Ord is recvd, I've set up the BOM explosion on it & the reqts will be passed on to KIT parts for consumption. the demand coming as STO's donot need to consume my KIT's PIR's as they are being planned separately in field wh's

    Hi,

    Create Mat code for KIT, and BOM usage 5 for KIT with those 4 FGs,

    In Mat code for KIT , sales Org 2 view , item category Group Use LUMF,

    And check the cycle, the 4 Fgu2019s Will get cost in this case in SO,

    Where as purpose of having KIT is to group only.

    Try this.. if it works for You.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You can do as Raghu said, Create material no. for KIT assy. as FERT and you can use strategy as any other FERT material in practice in your business.

    You can also use NLAG - Non Stock Material in Sales organisation 2 view Grouping category.

    But , my suggestion is to consider this as Inventorised and treat as NORM ie. as standard product, Because it has a very good value ( Value more than 4 FGs put together). This will give lot of advantage as other finished products.

    In my previous experience, we treated KIT as any other Std. material. ( We have replacement market for Ball joint KIT in automobile industry)
