ECC6.0 BOM Usage 4

Post by ahreyes500 » Thu Dec 02, 2010 8:54 pm

We have Material BOMs with usage "1" that we created with tcode CS01; we just applied Support packs to our environment and now we are not able to explode these boms through IW32 because it shows "Material xxxxxxxxxx does not have a BOM with relevant items". If we make a copy of a BOM that has usage "1" to a usage "4" then the BOM displays all components. Is there a way to continue using our BOMs with usage "1" in IW32? If so what needs to be configured? Or is there a reason why now the system does not allow to use a PRD BOM in Plant Maintenance?

Its not standard to see BOM Cat "1" in PM/CS.

Did you develop a solution for this, which was then over written by the Support Packs???

As far as I know these boms were set to usage "1" since the original implementation of ver.4.0b through standard method. We don't use Production Orders so I asked why our BOMs were set to PRD but couldn't get an answer. If I can explain why usage "1" doesn't work now with our PM Orders than I can justify changing usage to "4" which I think is what should have been since the original implementation.

You are correct, the standard setting for PM/CS is "4"

Do you know what the original customising settings in TCode OICD were?
