Hi MHP,

The spare part indicator is used to identify a BOM item as a spare part.

This indicator can be used, for example, to create lists of spare parts.

In a BOM explosion, you can use the spare part indicator to restrict the

items selected.

The indicator does not interrupt the explosion of the BOM to the lowest

level. There are two steps to the BOM explosion:

o First, the system explodes the entire BOM, regardless of the

indicators selected to restrict items. You do not see the result of

this explosion on the screen.

o Second, the system reads the indicators selected to restrict items,

such as the Spare part indicator.

These indicators work as filters. The result of the explosion you

see onthe screen only includes the items that fulfil the selection

criteria. In this case, only the items with the spare part indicator

you select are shown.

Example

Spare parts can, for example, be grouped according to maintenance cycle.

Spare parts that need to be replaced after a machine runtime of 100

hours are given spare part indicator A and spare parts that need to be

replaced after 500 hours are given spare part indicator B.

Hope this will help and reward with suitable points.
