Can CO07 explode BOM?

Hi Gurus,

We have a scenario wherein we need to create a production order via Co07 but use a BOM instead of just entering it manually. As of now i cannot find a way to link it in a BOM.

Reason is the operation just need to add/change a labels/stickers and this happens regularly. There will be no movement for the FG and it will remain the same thus we cannot use CO01 transaction.

Thanks,

Raymond

    Hello Raymond,

    As per stander-ed SAP CO07 can't ex-plod the BOM, since we are creating the order @ CO07 with out a header material.

    If we try to config the manual selection of Order dependent parameters(plant & rework order type), we need a header material to ex-plod the BOM.

    Best Regards

      Hello Remond,

      You can create the manual order with different order types like variance calculation purpose or shut down or rework with your own logic or configuration.

      make sure for the settlement with your Finance team regarding the same.

    Hello Raymond

    You can map this requirement using a recursive BOM for FG including labels/stickers. Also is possible to create a new type order like Re-labing or Repackaging.

    This scenario have the following advantages:

    • Keep traceability per batch
    • Relabing costs like labor, machine processing and overhead will be included in the FG cost.

    In addition, if you are relabing for an specific customer you should consider a Make to order strategy to link the stocks to sales order.

      Hello,

      We cannot use MTO as the FG is already set-up as Discrete manufacturing process.

      Also, we are using EWM so it will be much complicated for the user to do the GI,GR and QI of the FG which physically will not be done. Anyway, would you know if it is possible to create a production order via CO01 that is not GR relevant. Meaning it should not create a receipt element in MD04.

      Thanks,

      Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

      Regards,

      Raymond
