I have a KIT for example :

KIT material number KIT001

This KIT has a lot of composants:




I want to create a standard purchase order for this KIT.

When i write on item 10 the number of KIT + ENTER, i want to have on the next items the composants of the KIT with the quantity.

(idem for a BOM on a subcontract PO).

Thank you for your responses.

   The BOM in PO is exclusively for subcontract process in standard SAP, as far as I know.

   In your requirement, do you want to procure both the header material and sub components, or only sub components. If you want to procure sub components only, the requirements will be generated at the time of MRP run and the corresponding PR can be converted to PO. Next time if you want to procure the same manually, you can use the PO/PR as reference and create new PO. If you want to procure both header and item material automatically, its definitely out of standard SAP as of my understanding.

   Anyways, there is no standard procedure to achieve your requirement as of my knowledge. You may need to go for development using exit / badi.

   As suggested by Raviraj, you may check the possibility of VC also. With VC, I have seen high level and lower level item in Sale order, but didnt notice the same in PO.

This is not available as a standard SAP  functionality.  I'm not even sure if variant configuration can help you here.
