Incorrect Purchasing Org in Maintenance BOM for Non Stock Material

Hi All,

We create a new BOM for Maintenance Assembley (CS01) . Each item we add to the BOM is flagged with an item category of "N" for Non Stock item. The purchasing organisation when we are creating the component on the BOM is defaulting to 0001 even though this is not a valid plant.

When we add this item as a component on a work order, we received the message (ME004) "Purchasing organization 0001 not responsible for plant XXX".

I have checked that the org 0001 is not assigned to the plant.

Why is SAP assigning an invalid purchasing organisation to the non stock item on the BOM?

    I think it is the standard purchasing organisation that is assigned to the plant which is taken authomatically.

      Many Thanks Jurgen,

      After assigning the standard Purchasing Org it now works correctly.

      ENTERPRISE STRUCTURE>ASSIGNMENT>MATERIALS MANAGEMENT > ASSIGN STANDARD PURCHASING ORGANISATION TO

      PLANT

      Its a shame the IMG help doesn't state this little trick 😊
