Hi,

Try using this concept.

In BOM alternative items are assigned to alternative item group on the general

data.

In the production order in the general data tab page.

We can define the alternative items based on priority , strategy and usage probability.

Priority:

This defines the priority of the item within the alternative item group.

This determines the priority of planned withdrawls of items.

EX Two items are assigned to alternative item group

item A Priority 1

item B Priority 2

The system reads the item A first.

Strategy:

use the strategy to determine how the planned withdrawl is controlled

within the alternative item group.

The strategy should be same for all alternative items within a alternative

item group.

If the value 2( 100% check) is defined for the strategy the first material in

the defined priority sequence for which sufficient quantities are available

are reserved.

If value 1 is used( manual maintainence/ usage probability) depending upon the

availability you can manually with draw components.

Usage Probability:

MRP Plans these alternative material components according to probability

of use.Material requirements for BOM Components are planned according

to usage probability.

The planned withdrawls for the production order are based on the

reservation lists.These lists are based on the priority and strategy.

Mangesh,

Please go through this thread <b></b> this should help in your decision making.

Add both the components to the BOM and define with alternate groups, with strategy 2

Automatic selection is not possible...you can work with priority indicator in alternate group indicator in BOM item data...when you create production order then per priority reservations will be created for this item and withdrawel will take place if stock is found.

Otherwise work with stock determination group.

THE FLOW FOR THE ALTERNATIVE BOM

I. CREATE A SINGLE BOM(X00100) BY CS01 WITH THE COMPONENT A00100

2.GO TO CS01

3.ENTER THE MTERIAL THAT ALREADLY IN STEP 1

4.ENTER IN ALT BOM AS 1

SELECT ALL THE COMPONENTS---COPY---ENTER

5. CHANGE THE COMPONENTS B00100

SAVE- COPY -ENTER.

6.CLICK HEADER FOR DEFINE BOM GROUP

AND THE BOM TEXT -


SAVE

7. CHECK WITH THE CS05
