Best Practice for Buy in Set and Dismantle for Sales

Hi All SAP Masters,

We have a scenario that when purchasing an item as "set", in this set, it has a few components inside this set (something like a material BOM). Example, a machine which comes with several parts. However, when the user received this set from the supplier, the user would further dismantle certain part(s) from the set/"machine" and sell it separately to the customer as a component/"single item".

What is the best practice in the SAP process to be adopted?

Please help. Thank you.

Warmest Regards,

    If your client have PP module , then follow this steps

    Consider A is the purchased material and going to dismantle the A into B, and C

    1) create a BOM for B material

    and assign the header material A as consumption material with + ve qty

    and C component as byproduct and maintain - ve qty in BOM

    2) maintain backflush indicator for A & C in material master MRP2 view

    3) create routing for B and maintain auto GR for final operation

    4) create a production order for B

    5) confirm the order in Co11n, A will be consumed in 261 movement, C will be receipt with 531 movement

    B will receipt in 101 movement .

    once the stock is posted into unrestricted you can sale B & C
