Doing PO - Which BOM System
In Sub contracting , if I have 2 BOM having same name, while
doing PO, which BOM system will Pick?
If you have more than 1 BOM, then Verson has has to be created, which comes
under Materil master in MRP4 view. Create Version1 for 1st BOM and
Version2 for 2nd BOM and so on. This has to be updated in Info Record stating
which Version you are going to use currently. This version field will come
in Purchase Org Data Screen in Info Rec below tax code field and this info
rec has to be created in Info category - SubContract. This version will
be reflected in PO.
For a process orders, production orders and purchase orders, the system
will default to the first BOM in the Production Version list on Workscheduling
or MRP4 views.
For a sales order the system will default to the first lowest numbered
BOM found for the plant that the order is being generated from, unless
your SAP system is customized in some fashion
For example if you have 2 BOMs at plant 0011 and you want the system
to always default to alt BOM #2 you will need to set the production version
for alt #2 as the first option in the list... here is how I do mine...
A000 SUBCONTRACTOR BOM ALT#2
Alt BOM = 2
A001 SUBCONTRACTOR BOM ALT
#1 Alt BOM = 1
How to get to the PV:
First column is your Version #, in the above exampe I used A000 and
By double clicking on the Production version line you can make changes
to which BOM and Master Recipe the PV is linked to.
Note, typically a master recipe is not setup for subcontractor bom's,
therefore I would clear this data out if the PV is sub-contractor packed.
