Just update BOM usage qty via ECN

Hi, All,

I face a trouble on BOM update via ECN. for example,

in product trial run phase, I created a BOM and set component qty as 1ea, and scarp as 50%. meanwhile, I also know that, after 3 month, (for example: in 1st July) the scarp will be update into 3% because the product will going to mass production, so, I also created a ECN, and just set scarp as 10% at that time.

However, some time later (maybe 2 weeks), customer ask us to change the component qty as 2ea. so, I create a ECN to update the BOM.

in 1st July, the bom was changed and set the component qty as 1ea, scarp as 50% due to my pervious the ECN. I hope the component did not be changed.

Hi, everyone please tell me, can I just set a ECN just update scarp instead of whole BOM item?

    With ECM entire versions of the BOM are created, meaning that on one hand you cannot "just change scrap", but if this the only change that you had done, then only scrap is changed.

    With proper use of ECMs you should be able to model any logical business case of BOM changes.

    Dear Henry,

    You can create a separate Change number or use the same change number to make any BOM changes,it may be a quantity

    change or else scrap % change etc.

    In my understanding it does not mean we have to use the change number only to change the component or it's quantity.

    Check and revert
