IBP: How to deal with BoM header quantities > 1

Hi all,

we are currently designing the production network in SAP IBP for a client. Coming from ECC or APO, the BoMs have a BoM header quantity greater than 1 (e.g. 100), and consequently the BoM item quantities and resource requirements from the routings refer to the header quantity of 100; i.e. to produce 100 units I need 50 units of the item and 2h of resource capacity.

When we want to model this in IBP, the BoM header quantity has to be 1 (according to documentation, except for co-production) - so we would need to transform the item quantity and resource requirement to the header quantity of 1 (i.e. divide by 100). Particularly for resource requirements this may not be feasible because the required capacity is not necessarily scalable to the header quantity.

Does anyone have any experience with that? Any idea how to do this in SAP IBP?

Thanks,

Jonathan

    Hi Jonathan,

    Noram

    ECC Data:

    BOM:

    Finished Product - 100 EA (To produce 100 EA, Ram Material 50 EA required and BOM Header also 100 EA)

    Ram Material - 50 EA

    Routing:

    Base Quantity: 100 EA

    Capacity: 2 Hours

    We will transfer this data to IBP

    Production Source - Header Material - 100 EA, Ram Material 50 EA

    Production Resource - Header 100 EA - 2 Hours

    Requirement:

    Consensus demand quantity is 100 EA, after supply planning run

    Production receipts: 100 EA

    External receipts: 50 EA

    Production resource capacity: 2 hours

    IF consensus demand is changed to 200 EA, production receipts changed accordingly.

    IF any changes in BOM in ECC- we will transfer those changes to IBP and validate the master data.

    IF required capacity is not necessarily scalable to the header quantity planner need to adjust the capacity manually.

    Best Regards,

    Lingaiah
