Error exploding structured article

Dear experts ,

I need to explode the structure article ( sales set & display articles )  in PO . But the same is not happening & am getting the follwoing  message :

Error exploding structured article

Message no. ME466

Diagnosis

[ ] No header material found (structured material)

[ ] No components found (structured material)

[ ] Listing conditions incompletely maintained

[ ] Not allowed for single material (industry)

[X] No explosion defined for material category (Customizing)

[ ] Internal error

Procedure

  • No components found
  • Maintain the components for the structured material via BOM maintenance on the "Material" initial screen.
  • Listing conditions incompletely maintained
  • Complete the listing conditions:
  • Perform function
  • Not allowed for single material (industry)
  • Enter a material that was created via integrated material maintenance.

I have checked the listing as well as config in "Structured Article in Logistics Process" . As per the config the article should explode .

    Hi Anis,

            Please take a look at the document "Handling Structured Articles in ECC6.0 at the time of PO,GR & SO "which i have posted a few weeks back in SCN.

    http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-29560

    This document has detailed steps of how you handle structured articles with relevant screenshots.

    Hope it will help you in this regard.

    BR,

    Aram.

      Hi Anis,

         It looks like there is something wrong in the individual articles that form these structured articles(could be the components as well)

      Check

      i)if any of these articles are discontinued

      ii)Check if any of these articles are created as generic articles

      iii)Check any of these articles have their own individual listing

      Also its worth checking the following OSS Notes which may solve your problem

      744518

      577761

      741728

      Hope it helps

      BR,

    Hi Anis,

                   Please Note explosion at DC or Store is primarily decided by the article category (Prepack or Display) and only in Sales sets; stocks can be managed both at individual component and at the set level.

    So please check the Item category Group in Basic data and Sales View of the Article Master Data it should be LUMF only.

    BR

      Hi Ajaya ,

      My problem is related to Purchase Order & Goods Receipt .

      The structured article , despite of having necessary config in the follwoing is NOT getting exploded .

      IMG > Logistics General > Material Master > Retail-Specific Settings > Settings for Structured Materials > Structured Articles in Logistics Processes

      Regards ,

      Anis

    I assume that you are talking about Goods Receipt and not Sales Orders, and if that is true then Item Category Group is not relevant.

        

    You can configure this for Displays and Sales Sets (These are Article Categories).

        

    Please check:

        

    IMG > Logistics General > Material Master > Retail-Specific Settings > Settings for Structured Materials > Structured Articles in Logistics Processes

        

    There you will find that you can configure the behavior for Goods Receipt and Purchase Orders, and then by Article Category.   For example, Category Type 10 is a Sales Set and Category Type 12 is a Display.

    Thanks everyone !!!!!

    The issue is now resolved .

    There was an issue with listing of the articles .

    Local assortment category was incorrectly maintained as 'C' .

      Hello

      I am trying to process prepacks in Retail.  I have successfully created a prepack and added components.  I can also see the components exploded on the Purchase Order.

      however the component items are flagged as delivery complete - meaning that receiving either via IBD or MIGO is always going to be at the prepack header level.

      This is not what I want!

      Also I tried to receive (movement type 561) via MIGO and when I tried to explode the prepack/BOM

      I get error message MIGO023.

      I am buying prepacks from the vendor but need to receive the components into my store.
