alternative items group in iPPE PVS

Former Member

Hi gurus,

I have a question concerning alternative items group in iPPE product variant stricture.

I see this field, but how can I use it?

In classic BOM (CS02 t-code) togetrer with this field also exists a rules how to determine one of seferal alternative positions.

In PVS - no rules.

(see image attached)

How should I build iPPE-PVS if I have several alternative positions?

How this field (alternative items group) could help me?

Thank you!

Best regards,

Alternative item groups in iPPE won't affect system behaviour, except for CO explosion procedures in method EXPL_HANDLE_APG of BADI IPPE_EXPL. As far as I understand the logic, non-stockable MPN material will be deleted from explosion results, if reference to stockable material is presented in material master for it.
