make the header material of a sales set BOM a non stock

Dear All,

Can anyone please tell me how to make the header material of a sales set BOM a non stock or not relevant for stock ?

My requirement is to create the delivery from a STO and execute subsequent processing upto PGI and billing the same was as it was created by a standard sale order. only requirement at header level is to do the pricing. Rest of the delivery processes will be done at the component/sub item level.

I have been able to create the delivery now based on the STO, but the concern is SAP expect the header material to have stocks at the time of creating delivery.

Can anyone please tell me how can I get rid of this error ? I'm not sure what consequences will arise if I changed the header mat.type to NLAG. please advice

Currently the material type of both header and components are HAWA and item category grp ERLA and NORM respectively. 

Thanks in advance.

    This thread was a great start for me when I needed to price at the parent but perform everything else at the child level on a Sales Order.  However, I didn’t get the full picture based on the information that people provided, and I wanted to include a full set of the settings I made to get this to work properly.  I’m not saying this is perfect, but this setup produced the results I needed, which were:

    Parent material is setup as an NLAG

    Pricing is done at the Parent level

    Parent Material is included on the Delivery and Invoice.

    Parent Material is “Pickable” but not maintained in stock, hence being an NLAG

    Child Materials are setup as FERT materials

    Child Materials are NORM item cat group and can be sold individually or within the BOM

    Child Materials are Batch Managed

    Parent Item Category Settings:

    Item Type = A

    Billing Relevance = A

    Pricing = X

    Checkmarks on: Business Item, Sched Line Allowed, Item Rel for Delivery, Weight/Vol Relevant, Credit Active, Determine Cost

    Child Item Category Settings:

    Billing Relevance = BLANK

    Pricing = BLANK

    Checkmarks on: Business Item, Sched Line Allowed, Weight/Vol Relevant, Credit Active, Determine Cost

    Schedule Line Categories

    Parent Item Category assigned to custom Schedule Line Category for all MRP Types, which only has a checkmark in Item Rel for Delivery. All other items are blank except the Incompletion Procedure

    Child Item Category assigned to standard Schedule Line Category CP for all MRP Types

    Reply if you have any additional questions and I'll try to answer them

    Try by changing the item category to TAX in Delivery Item Category determination.

    As the BOM material is with Item category Group ERLA...the processing happens at header level. The BOM- parent will be relevant for delivery (item category TAQ). If the BOM is created with item category group LUMF...then it results in sub-item level processing and the components/child items will be relevant for delivery (item category TAN).

    Thanks,

      Dear Lakshmipathi and Ravi, I do highly appreciate your quick response at this critical stage of my project.

      @ Lakshmipathi : I have created my own item category based on standard TAQ settings. As per your advice I just copied the same settings as TAX in to my customized item category and tried. but it is the same result. Any opinions please ...

      @  Ravi : As I mentioned before I need to do only the pricing at header material level. my understanding is if I use LUMF I cannot do pricing at header level. Once again my requirement is to do all subsequent delivery activities such as picking , packing ,PGI etc, etc.at component level and just doing only pricing at header level. Header material is not relevant to distribution process at all and it is just a container to carry out the billing.

      Please assist.

      Thanks in advance.

      RS.

    • MoazzaM,

      You would be one of "THE" members to create a document on BOM.

      Please give as many business examples (with various BOM scenarios - Main item with stock, without stock etc. etc.)

      Interesting set up of BOM is the "structure" - 1EA Main item with 2EA of Sub-item1 and 1EA of Sub-item2 is independent of the item category(ies);

      The structure is set in CS01 and the item categories are set in VOV4.

      SAP is truely a well-structured, creative system!

    Dear,

    Create a BOM as  Material ( Main Material ) and Components ( Original Components ).

    Settings : Main Material - S.Doc Type     Usage   Item Category Group   Item Category

                                              OR                 -                LUMF                          TAP ( relevant Price )

                   Components  -S.Doc Type     Usage   Item Category Group   Item Category

                                              OR                -                  NORM                      TAN ( relevant price )

    Note : Price is depends on Item Category not on Item Category Group . So ,if you do above settings then you can accomplish your requirement .

    If you have any doubts please let me know .

    Thanks,

    Naren

      Yes you are rigtht it is about settings in item catogires and schedule line categories but you know these main items and sub items works in sales BOM so thats why we are using the term BOM. In actual it is true that we need to play just with item categories and schedule line categories.

      And thanls for sharing the settings again 😉

      Thank$

    Create Header Material i.e. Sales Set Bom Material in Non Stock........if you want pricing at header then assign Gen. item cat. grp " NLAG " & Item category group "ERLA"

    Child item should be FERT.....with Gen. item cat. grp " Norm " & Item category group "Norm"

      Dear Neeraj, thanks for your feedback in relate to delivery creation of unfulfilled quantities.

      I have achieved this requirement via a simple code change in one of the customized delivery BADI's.

      Thanks once again.
