Hi Friends,

I have following BOMs for same material.

A = B+ C

A = B+ D

A = B + F

I have maintained the same thru alternate BOM. Each alternate BOM is assigned to differnt Vendor (manually outside SAP)

Is it posiible I get different items for each vendor (as per alternate BOM) when making PO with item category as "L" when BOM explodes. Is there any way for doing this.

Regards

Hi All,

Thanks. I found Nikhil answer is simple. After testing I found it is working like that.

Hi Sai,

Create production versions for material using different BOMs. Enter production version in purchasing info record --> purhasing organization data.

I have never tried this scenario. You can try whether it works or not.

Hi Sai,

I agree with Mani Roopa, you should maintain 'source list' + 'quota arrangement + 'production versions''.

You should create production version for each alternative BOM and assign these 'production versions' through quota arrangement to sources of supply (to the subcontractors).

During MRP run, SAP will assign the vendors (exploding the relevant alternative BOM) to the PR (using QA).

Please check:

hi,

In fact as the scenario you mentioned here can be solved by assigning a source list and quota arrangement.

Because at the time of purchase requisition we select the vendor and if necc we can make that vendor fixed in source list.

The combination what ever you define in CS01 can be exploded in for any vendor .
