If you are talking about a different combination of Items for the same BOM Parent then it would not be possible.

If you are simply talking about the option to select a different Parent (BOM) the it works the same way as any other Item as BOM in itself is an Item defined in the Item Master

*---> Is there no work around for this in B1?*

An Alternate Item is a completely different Item Number which could be used as a Substitute.

If your BOM Parent Code is going to be different for different combinations of child Items then, YES it would be possible.

Dynamically using the same Bom Parent code with different Child Items, is more of a configured BOM you need customization for this. Or any manufaturing AddOn would be able to do this.

Hi,

do you mean BOM variant ? if yes, currently it is not available in the system definition of B1. There could be possible a work around by creating UDF (a UDF for info of alternative BOM) and UDT (the alternative BOM) but it could be impossible if we use it to replace original BOM in the production order automatically.

Rgds,
