Different BOM for each month

Hi,

The BOM is different for each month. If i make different alternatives for each month and run the LTP will it help to get the raw material requirement as per the BOM for that month. Example BOM for NOV/DEC will be not same but we want to estimate the raw material req for next year.

Kindly advise what i need to do?

Regards

ShankarR

    Dear Shankar,

    1.What is the business contraint in using change number functionality to address this requirement without creating any

    additional alternative BOM?

    2.Say you create the first alternative BOM using a change number and save all the BOM components.

    3.The default valid from date will be the valid from date of the change number and valid to date will be 31.12.9999.

    4.Whenever there is a BOM change use a different change number with valid from date say 25.10.2010,so using this in the

    same BOM delete the components and add the new component's or make any BOM change and save.

    5.For the deleted components the valid from date will be say (you have created using today's date for BOM creation)

    05.10.2010 and the valid to date will be 25.10.2010.

    6.What is the advantage of creating new alternative BOM?

    6.How are you using the LTP results for inventory purpose,say how are you planning the raw material's requirement for the

    next year based on this year's BOM?

    7.LTP is not only the feasibility of material procurement,but also production that can be produced with available resource.

    Check and revert

    Hi

    By using change number you can achieve your requirment.Every month craete change number ( vaild from is Month start and to is month end)and with refrence to change number you change the BOM.So when you run MRP is requirment date is fall on current month it will explode BOM valid on current month else next month valid BOM is exploded.
