BOM explosion where first BOM alternative has deletion flag



I got the following very basic scenario:

One FERT material has two BOM alternatives (alternative 1 and 2). Both of them are valid in terms of date, status and lot size. When a production order is created by CO01 the system will pick automatically alternative 1 (which is ok for me). BUT if this BOM alternative 1 gets a deletion flag (on BOM alternative header) I would expect that the system would automatically pick alternative 2 (it is the "next" suitable alternative). But the systems says there is no valid BOM available.

Only if I really delete alternative 1 (so I cannot see it anymore in CS02), the system would pick alternative 2 (because it is now the really first one available - no version in front with only deletion flag). But in terms of documentation I cannot delete the alternatives.

Maybe somebody could explain that to me or had a similar problem...

BR and thanks in advance.
