    Go to MM02 >> MRP 4 (tab) >> make Selection method = 1

    Go to OS32 >> Enter material, plant, BOM usage, date (some time before basic start date) , Alt BOM = 2

    Save it.

    Create production order and go to your master data tab.

      Hi Prakash,

      Yes you can but you need to create new production order & test.

      otherwise if your order is not confirm then do read PP master data.

    Hello Prakash,

    Please post your requirement in Production Planning Discussion forum.As the issue is related to PP.

    After maintaining the alternative BOM in production version,

    Option1: you can call this version n the order with lot size ranges if you want. Example PV1 if lot size between range 1 to 1000 and PV2 between range 1001 to 2000 etc. This is one option.

    Option2: If you do not maintain lot size ranges then by default the PV1 gets copied into the order. After that you go to Functions > Read PP Master data and change the production version.

    Also maintain Production version selection in OPL8 and material master

    Hope this helps

    regards

    Hi Prakash,

    Request you to maintain production versions in MRP 4 view of material master of vehicle part, with proper details & alternate BOM. Also selection method for BOM explosion by production version.

    Further by referring TC- OPL8 set selection of production version by manually.

    Now the system will ask you for production version while creating production order.

    Hope this will help you.

    if 2 PV with same valid dates range are available, the one with lower number will be defaulted, (e.g if your PV 001 and 002 are valid then 001 will be defaulted. you will get the BOM included in this PV.

    Hi,

    There must be some defining Parameter for seleting between two Alternative BOMs. It may be Lot size or validity etc.

    You can define your Lot size in the BOM Header for these alternative BOMs as to which BOM should get picked up during MRP.

    If you are trying for Production Order, it will be good if you maintain Production Version for these two alternative BOMs:

    1. PV0001- for Alternative 1

    2. PV0002 for Alternative 2

    Maintain these PV in Material Master MRP4 view or use C223.

    Maintain in OPL8 (planning tab) either as Manual Selection of Production version or Automatic selection of Production version. For Automatic Selection of Production version by the system, you must properly define the validity date of the Production versions and the Lot size else the system will always pick up the first one.

    Manual Selection will give you option to select the production version in Production Order

    Hope this helps

    Dear Parkash,

    Without Maintaining any Production Version

    1.In case if both the alternative BOM is valid for the same validity date and lot size, then always the

    system will pick the first alternative BOM,if both the alternative BOM's status is kept as 01-active

    during manual production order creation.

    2.Now in case if you want the second alternative to be picked during production order creation,then

    you can set the status of the first alternative BOM as 2 in the BOM header of the first alternative

    BOM.

    With maintaining the production version

    1.Set the BOM selection method as 2 in the MRP4 view of the material master.

    2.Now create 2 different production versions by assigning the first alternative BOM to the

    first version and the second alternative BOM to the second production version for the same

    validity date/Lot size.

    3.Ensure in OPL8 for the order type and plant combination the production version selection

    is kept as manual.

    4.Now create production order and check the impact.

    Hi

    Best way is to maintain production version and select the appropriate version during order creation as explained by others above.

    Hi Prakash Chand,

    To select the Aletrnative BOM in production order, as per my idea no need to create the proudtction version to select the alterantive BOM, you can carry following steps :

    1) Create the Alternative Routing w.r.to Alternative BOM 2

    2) Do the configuration settings in OPL8 for routing slection in Planning Tab , as given below screen:

    shot:

    3) When you are converting from planned order, creating the production order manually the system will ask you to select the Routing Group number/group counter number,

    4) Select the appropriate Routing group/group counter and go a head for other production order details and save the screen.

    I think the above given procedure will give you the facility to select the altaernative BOM2 for your Vehical production.

    Please check and revert back.

    Thanks,

    Raj.
