MRP area, alternative BOM


For an international cylinders filling center, I'm facing this organization.

From an production point of view Finished Good1 and component1 are the same whereever they are stored.

As the cylinders come from different countries, they have to return, once filled, to their respective country.

Finished Good1 = full cylinder, component1= empty cylinder, component2= raw material

So, as on the floor shop, they are stored in different area, per country, I've decided to manage these products into several storage locations instead of increasing the number of material codes.

I created 2 MRP areas for storage locations to plan independently the requirements , 2 alternative BOMs to consume component1 from the storage location 3 or 5.

Now, I don’t know how MRP selects the alternative BOM according to MRP areas. Alt1 for MRP area1; Alt2 for MRP area2

Do you have any ingenious idea?

    You may create a production version for each MRP area and create an implementation of BAdI MD_MODIFY_PRODVERS using your own logic to select the production version.
