Stock reduction not happening for BOM article through Sales simulation (transaction WPUK)

Dear All,

I have created Article (PAN PIZZA) and its components in MM41 and created BOM in CS01 with Alternative BOM 1

Check below eg.

The problem is that, when I make a sales simulation (transaction WPUK) by entering Main article 183437 & qty as 1 each. System created billing document & Article Document. I expect stock reduction for BOM article which is not happening instead system creates article document for main article 183437.

How to achieve this scenario. Please Help.

Regards,

Mohan

    Hi Mohanavel,

    This is not expected if you have BOMs.

    The BOM articles will reduce stock, when you are producing the main article, from that point on, the main article plays role only.
    So at the time of goods issue (selling the article), the main item's stock will reduced only.

    I think you are mixing up the things with BOM and structured article's components.

    Component explosion (reducing stock on component level) can be customized for structured articles.

    • Hi Andras,

      Thanks for your response. If I do transaction through MIGO using movement type 251 same as document posting through simulation (T.code.WPUK).When I click Explode BOM icon then stock reduction is happening on BOM articles. My question is how to default Explode BOM so that when I do simulation through WPUK, article document will post and stock reduce on BOM article. Or If there are any other solution to achieve this scenario. Kindly suggest..

    Hi Mohan,

    OK, now I get what you meant...
    As the movement will occur in the background when posting by WPUK (so you have no chance to push the button explicitly, like in MIGO), you will have to go for an enhancement on MIGO to achieve this.

    There was a similar conversation earlier on the BOM explosion in MIGO, which might help you further:

    GOITEM-EXPAND needs to be enhanced probably.

    But as far as you cannot achieve to perform the explosion automatically in MIGO, it also won't happen when being posted in background by WPUK.

    As last chance maybe it would also worth to try to activate a user exit for the corresponding IDoc, and explode the article there, before article document posting would be called, but I am not sure whether this will work 100%.

    Best regards,
    Andras

    • Hi Andras,

      Thanks for your response. I will try enhancement. Mean while as suggested by you in previous post I tired using sales set with same above example and it worked perfectly as expected, Invoice creating for Main article and Component stocks depleted. But COGS (Cost of goods sales) is not posted either in components cost nor with the sales set.Can you suggest how to achieve it. Also MAP is not capturing for Main article.

      Below screen shot reference.
