Scenario for BOM

Dear All,

Good Morning,

I have 3 Materials A, B and C. A is the main Item. B and C will be the part of Material A in BOM. As per the standard SAP SD if the Item Category Group is ERLA I will have Pricing and Inventory at Main Item. If my Item Category Group is LUMF I will have Pricing and Inventory (Goods Issue) at Item Level.

As per my requirement I want to have Pricing at Header Level i.e at Material A and Inventory at Material B and C i.e in my Deivery Goods Issue should be done from B and C and not from Material A. Is this scenario possible by Customising my Item Category?. Please provide your valuable Inputs.

Thanks & Regards,

Parag.

    Yes,

    Its possible. This is the reuirement from some of the clients in automobile industry.

    Where they dispatch the components & pricing will be @ Main Item level.

    Before configuring this, you should consider the Costs also & Controlling reports.

    Byfine tuning item categories & copy controls you can achieve this.

    Few of them,

    - main item , item cat - should relevant for pricing & respective copy controls should be maintained from Delivery - billing

    - Component item category- should not relevant for pricing, there should be any copy controls maintaiend from Delivery - Billing.

    - Dispatch happen @ component level, so PGI accounting document triggers based on std cost maintained for components.

    - Cumulate all the costs of components to main item. To do so, In Copy control @ item level. tick mark " Update cost" for main item item category

    - In Billing, Cost will be copied from components in Main item & profit margin calculation done accordingly.

    NOTE:

    This should be agreed by FI, then only you can take this further.

    The above input provided with normal sales scenario only. other SD functionalities need to check like Rebates/Credit Mangament/Free Goods / BOM Returns / batch management etc..,

    From SD perspective, it doesnt have much impact.
