Drop Ship processing for Sales BOM


We have a requirement to have a Sales BOM drop shipped from a Vendor. Only the header material is relevant for pricing and purchase order. However, we have a business requirement to explode the sales BOM in the sales document and billing document to address statistical pricing requirements at the component level.

Since only the header material is required in the PO, it has a billing relevance of 'F'. However, we have set the components to be relevant for order related billing. Standard SAP opens up the components for billing even though a vendor invoice for the header has not been received.

Can copy control be used to control the components from being billed unless the header is billed AND the quantity of component materials modified based on the header material being invoiced ? Is it possible to only explode the sales BOM in the billing document using a billing document exit ?

Would appreciate suggestions from the forum.

    The billing document creation can be controlled through the copying requirement in Copy Control of Billing documents.

    Transaction VOFM | Billing documents: Create a new requirement which prevents billing unless the parent item has the vendor invoice receipt.

    This requirement has to be then assigned to the respective billing and sales document type in copy control.
