Bom components for costing

0 Kudos


My requirement is to add component in BOM for costing only  without relevancy to production.

One way is to create separate Bom usage with having  indicator  item relevant to production optional and deselct checkbox at item level.

Please could you advise if there is any other way available?

Hello Mayuresh,

Best option is create BOM for costing only by using BOM usage 6 as per standard SAP.

In OS20 you can check the setting of BOM usage which make the difference in application like production, costing.

Purpose of Costing BOM is to get a rough cut cost estimate for a new product which is yet manufactured.

After that you can copy costing BOM to Production BOM usage 1.

Best Regards,

You can use the BOM usage type 6 costing for your requirement , also you can define separate usage type .If you select the BOM usage as Production, then you cannot deselect the production relevenat check box from item details.

Dear Mayuresh,

One possible way is to set the Planning Indicator Off in customizing Bom, Item data, Define explosion Type for the relevant components

Assign the indicator in Item data of CS02 for your components.

With this, the relevant components will not be exploded while MRP run

Best regards
