Tools, Documents as quantity 0 in BOM


Hai Experts,

My client in their legacy system is using the following items as materials with quantity 0

1. Tools Required for operation

2. Operation sheets

3. Installation Drawings

4. Test specifications

5 Circuit Diagrams

6 And Etc

All the above are used only for reference purpose in the BOM of the Semifinished Material.

What would be best possible way of converting this requirement in SAP

Tools can be created as PRT and assigned to the Routings. But if we use them in the operations will it be only for reference or will it trigger any other requirements?

From points 2 to 6 seems to be mostly Documents attached with the material in BOM. But we dont use DMS. So i feel it is impossible to have them as documents in the BOM(Correct me if i m wrong).

If we use them as text item with quantity 1,will it be a best practice or is there any other best practice for this requirement.

Please advice me on this.

Thanking you in advance.
