Alternative Item group not appearing CS11

Former Member

Hi all,

We have created BOM with all the substitution materials which can be used at the time of Production.

We have utilised the Alternative item group for this. When i look at BOM for a material say X using CS03 i can see the Alternative Item group. But when i explode the BOM using CS11 i cannot see the alternative item group in it.

The scenario in details is :

For the header material X i have X1,as component with different change numbers and unique validity dates and this component is seen in 3 lines in BOM with alternative item groups against it.

Now when i explode the BOM using CS11 i can see X1 component with alternative group for only 2 line items.

We are in ECC6.0 version, can i ask you whether there is any patch or oss note to be applied.I have tried searching OSS notes but couldnt find them

Please advice as this is of very high importance.

Thanking you

Regards

Raj Kiran

Dear Rajkiran

In T code CS11,after giving the inputs like

material,plant,Alternative(if more than one BOM is

present),Application------> execute.

Then click on the button for change layout(Control+F8),Select

the Column set and pick Alternative item,Usage

probability,Alternative group,Priority to

the Displayed column set,I mean move and so your getting

the desired Results.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply, but its not that am not choosing the correct layout in CS11 after exploding the BOM, the issue is that Alternative item group doesnot appear at all although it is maintained in the BOM(CS01).

I think i have to search for some SAP note as its an inconsistency between CS03 and CS11.

Thanking you

Dear Raj,

What I wanted to confirm from you is ,after executing CS11--->

Changing Layout -


> Selecting Alternative Item group,

priority,Usage probablitity,the values are not shown in the field

properly though they are actually present in the BOM?

So enter the proper valid from dates in CS11(Select the date

on which the alternative item group is active) & also alternative

BOM number properly.

So go ahead as I suggested and even after entering the proper

valid from dates,Alt.BOM---changing layout ,if its not giving

proper results,then go for checking OSS notes.

This is with respect to ECC 6.0.

Check & revert back.
