If I have one products with BOM are used identically in several companies.

Can I create a reference BOM somehow and make all the companies reference it?

So when I update the reference BOM, changes are reflected in all companies?

Pls confirm companies means u refer to Plant?

If it is plant then you can create the Group BOM so without any plant code. with that we can copy to another plant which is required.

But if you make any change in the group BOM it will not automatically update in all other plant, need to do it manually.

Thanks and Regards,

BOM is the Plant Level PP-Master data .It is not possible to create an BOM out side the company .Company code is an legal entity as per SAP Standard .

To create an BOM you should have Plant , BOM Usage , Material Code .All of them are deployed at Plant Level which is assinged to company code .

Hope it is clear to you .
