BOM RELEASE

Dear All SAP Guru,

In our organization we required Release strategy in BOM stage like Purchase order.Once BOM created against the SFG / FG code it is under developement fully should not available for Production use unless responsible person release the same.

Thanks In advance,

Vijay Pabale

    Dear Vijay,

    Check this,

    Your requirement cannot be mapped directly in SAP.Activate ECM for a specific BOM usage purpose.

    1.Make ECM mandatory for all the users when creating/changing BOM.

    2.Provide the authorization for the Engineering people for creating change numbers with release key.

    3.Production people will be allowed to create/change BOM but not a change number ,so using the

    change number let the production people create BOM,but unless if the relese key is not set in CC02

    after creating BOM then the BOM will not become valid.

    4.But some of the contraints are always your Engineering people should create a change number(for

    changing existing BOM wihtout release key,for creating BOM with release key) in order to have the

    better control.

    (or else create BOM always with inactive status 2,by making the necessary configuration in T code OS28 and once the BOM is

    ready,you can set the status to 1 in CS02. - I'm not sure whether this works out,check and confirm).

    Check and come back with your queries.

    Regards

    Hi ,

    There's not Release strategy in BOM. I totally understand what you want. You need to setup the engineering change management (ECM).

    Please check out what you need to do with ECM.You can control the progress of changes with an engineering change request (ECR) or an engineering change order (ECO).

    An engineering change request is a change master record with reference to a change type. Since processing change objects with an ECR/ECO enables you to control changes in a more precise way, you cannot create a change request with the Change leader (Leading change master record) function.

    There's ECR VS ECO, I would suggest you to setup ECR / Change Master Record since ECO is more complicated.

    In the R/3 System, change master records are identified by a change number.

    Each change number will be your approval to "approve" the BOM release.

    ECR creating screen CC31, but you need to have better understanding about ECR.

    Hope you understand what i mean.

    TQ

    Hi, Go to BOM header check what is status, it should be 1 at present.

    Use this field make default it '2' in place of one. so at the time of cration BOM is inactive & can't be use any where.

    when u want to use it & it fully valid go to chnage it in '1'. now bom is active & ready to use.

    Regards

    HI Pabale

    If your requirment is systm will not use (user) created BOM for Productio then go for

    Plant specific status (OMS4) - in Purchasing view or Basic data view or MRP 1 View

    Create your wone status in (OMS4) - for bloking of BOM

    This is a work around and you can cantrol through CS02 (once you remove plant specific status the bom is released for use)

    But at the time of creation of BOM you must enter the Plant specific status as blocked

    Regards,

    Girish

    Hi dear,

    In OS28 you can set the default status of BOM as incative so your BOM will be created in inactive state and when it is completeed in all the repsect you have to change that status of that BOM from inactive to active.

    By this your requirement will be met.

    Hi,

    Create the workflow for it and assign the person's mail in the receipt who is going to release the BOM i.e. make it active.

    Once the BOM is created, maintain it as In-active and once it saved, it will send the mail to the resp. person who will release the BOM.

    Thanks
