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,

    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.


    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.
