BOM Dependent Production Storage Locations

Hey Gurus,

We have a situation where we have a material that is a semi finished good (6001107) that is a subassembly of another semi finished good (6001116)

What I am doing is using the production storage location as (31E1). The system is backflushing all (261) components for 6001107 and doing a (101) for the semi finished good (6001107)into the (31E1 production storage location).

For quality reasons, the users here would like to not look for materials in the Storage location 31E1 but would to issue a TR and move the material to 31E2 before they use 6001107 as a component of 6001116.

When availability check is done for production orders for the semi finished good, 6001107, the system is looking to for available stock in 31E1. When we do availability check for production orders for 6001116, it is also looking for available stock for the component 6001107 in 31E1.

The users would like for the availability check for 6001116 to look for available stock for componetn 6001107 in 31E2. I looked in the routing and in the bom and didn't see anyway of changing where the availability check was done on the material and I only noticed one place to populate a production storage location but I didnt' see where there was a place to make it independent of the usage in a bom stucture.

Do you guys have any suggestions for me on how to make 6001107 look at the production storage location 31E1 when we are producing this material as a semi finished good and then look at 31E2 when the material 6001107 is a component of 6001116?

Your question: Do you guys have any suggestions for me on how to make 6001107 look at the production storage location 31E1 when we are producing this material as a semi finished good and then look at 31E2 when the material 6001107 is a component of 6001116?

you almost answered your question.

see in the material master you have filed for prd storage location in MRP 2. and you have one prod sto location in the BOM

Now Answer: in the Material master of the 6001107 put your storage location as 31E1 (it will be your GR location for this semifinished material when its is produced)

now when you want to consume the material 6001107 from storage location 31E2 . In the BOM of 6001106 , for component 6001107 maintain prod storage location as 31E2 ( it will be consumed from 31E2).

i hope your question will be solved.

Note below:

In production, first there is a check as to whether an issue location is entered in the BOM item.

If there is an issue location in the BOM item, this issue location is copied to the production order as a default value. Otherwise, the issue location is copied from the material master record (in the plant in which you created the BOM).Dependencies
