Specification for BOM Alternative in SPRC BOMBOS

Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to have a specification record created at the BOM alternative level? Within the SPRC compliance workbench structure, multiple BOM alternatives are reflected as child nodes of the top level material specification although there are no specification master records created at the child level. After running BOMBOS on a material with multiple alternatives, only one alternative is listed as an identifier on the specification master (ID Cat NUM, ID Type BOM). The only reference to the other BOM alternatives I see are within that composition value assignment SAP_EHS_1012_025. Each BOM alternative is listed as a separate value assignment instance. The BOM alternative # is visible only in usage under ValAreaCat 'BOMALT'.

I would like for each BOM alternative to be represented with its own specification record. Is it possible to influence this behavior via config or would this require an enhancement to the BOMBOS program?

Thanks,

Adam

    Dear Adam

    may be check OSS Note: 1454915. There seems to be an environment parameter BOMBOS_ALTERNATIVE_TRANSFER which should have the value "ALL".

    Check this link: http://www.stechno.net/sap-notes.html?view=sapnote&id=1454915

    With best regards

      Hello Gargi,

      I added these FM to config however BOMBOS still does not generate specifications for the BOM alternatives. Please note that BOMBOS does in fact consider the multiple alternatives and shows them in the compliance workbench hierarchy. The problem is that there is not a specification record created at this level. A representation of what I currently see vs what I want is:

      Material A (Spec ID 1)

      --> BOM Alternative 1 (No Spec ID)

      -->Material B (Spec ID 2)

      -->Material C (Spec ID 3)

      --> BOM Alternative 2 (No Spec ID)

      -->Material D (Spec ID 4)

      -->Material E (Spec ID 5)

      What I would like to see is as follows:

      Material A (Spec ID 1)

      --> BOM Alternative 1 (Spec ID 6)

      -->Material B (Spec ID 2)

      -->Material C (Spec ID 3)

      --> BOM Alternative 2 (Spec ID 7)

      -->Material D (Spec ID 4)

      -->Material E (Spec ID 5)

      In your environment, it there a unique specification # assigned to each BOM alternative? Perhaps my illustration above is somewhat misleading - when I choose the BOM alternative there is indeed a spec # shown on the screen, although it is simply a repeat of the spec # assigned above at the material level (Spec ID 1 in the example). What I want is a unique spec that represents each BOM alternative.

      Thanks,

      Adam
