we are facing an issue with the Order BOM functinalilty when uesed in conjunction with VC materials and special procurment key (production in alternate plant with stock transfer)...scenario goes something like this....
A configurable material X is produced in Plant A. Super BOM for X in plant A has three configurable sub-assemblies (KMATs also)....Material master for one of this sub-assmebly (material Y) in Plant A has a speical procurement key which tells it to produce it in Plant B and then deliver the built sub assmebly back to plant A using STO....
Once our Sales order is saved (delivering plant A), we use CU51 or CSKB for creating order BOMs...We are working in true engineering to order environment..Now the problem is that in standard SAP the plant that is used for creating order BOM is proposed from the plant specified in sales order...So when I wish to create order BOM for part Y, I wish to choose plant Y as this part will be produced in that plant...Since that is not possible, I was hoping that when i create order BOMs for material Y in plant A, and run MRP in both plants, correct requriements will be generated in plant B...But this does not happen....
Once MRP is run, it explodes the entire SuperBOM for material Y in plant B...Seems like the system is ignoring the order BOM configuration for material Y in plant A and is jsut exploding the entire super BOM...
Am I missing something? Is there another way of getting this process to work...I found a useful note 328269 which we implimented but that did not help either...please advice.
If your material Y is also a KMAT, it cannot be stocked (unless you have made changes to the material type) This means it cannot be produced separately in another plant since it would have to be put in stock before it can be transfered. You should use a material type that can be stocked (eg HALB) and mark the material as configurable on the basic data 2 screen instead of using a KMAT
I'm facing the same issue here. Do you remember how did you resolve this?
Any help will be deeply appreciated.
