Material requirement for non BOM item

0 Kudos

Dear Experts,

I seek your expert inputs to resolve the below scenario.


We have material A in the BOM. Material B is not maintained in any BOM.

Regular requirements available for material A. Material A is purchased in lots (ex. 10 tons) We need to purchase material B(10 kg) also with A, as B should mix with A before production. Since B is not maintained in the BOM, we cannot see the exact requirement.

Is there a way to get an automatic PR/PO when requirement is there for material A?Ex. We need an automatic order for B 10kg for each 10tons of material A.

You can create new material which contains material A and B as BOM.

Let's forget about the BOM.

My requirement is to automatically trigger a requirement for material B when material requirement of A reaches some quantity.

Ex: if A requirement is 10K kg, automatic requirement should be there for 15kg of B.
