BOM Explosion Dates between Quotes and CIR's

Hi All

I have inconsistencies occurring in the BOM between the Quotation and the CIR when changes occur to the BOM. The quote uses the "pricing date" to explode the BOM while the CIR uses the "delivery date". As a result they are both exploding different versions of the BOM and the CIR, which is used to drive procurement, ultimately creates purchase requ2019s for incorrect components. Has anyone experienced a similar problem and how was the explosion of components made consistent?

Example

Quote for Material X

Date = 01.01.2011

Material X BOM = Component A

Component B

Material X BOM is changed on 01.02.2011

Material X BOM = Component A

Component C

CIR copied from Quote

CIR Delivery Date = 01.03.2011

Material X BOM on CIR = Component A

Component C

Based on the quote the CIR BOM should be

Material X BOM = Component A

Component B

    what do you mean by CIR ?

    Are you working with variant config? Some more details about how you're processing it n where are you exploding this bom, should help get a little better understanding.
