Substance Volume Tracking - Production Scenario and BOM

Hello Community Members,

I want to configure the SVT PRODUCTION (PRO) scenario but I am slightly confused on what option to be  selected since there are mixed opinion received and this makes it more complex.

I prepared a sample structure of Bill of Material levels for one product similar to the one available in the system (The Pic is attached)

Material BOM List V/s EHSMaterial BOM List V/s EHS

I have some questions here:

1) In the given example, is it okay to track the composition of only Main product (Real_sub)? In this case there are only two Pure subs. I assume that may not be correct.
2) Or I need to setup a same structure in SAP EHS (as a separate composition e.g Legal comp) so that it tracks at all levels drilling to the last pure sub?
3) Is there any need to develop a custom code logic to check BOM first.

Any hint or suggestions are welcome.

Thanks In advance

Ashish

Regarding your questions:

1) In the given example, is it okay to track the composition of only Main product (Real_sub)? In this case there are only two Pure subs. I assume that may not be correct.
2) Or I need to setup a same structure in SAP EHS (as a separate composition e.g Legal comp) so that it tracks at all levels drilling to the last pure sub?
3) Is there any need to develop a custom code logic to check BOM first.

Question 1: i can not interpret your "BOM" part.  I believe: You do a "BOM" explosion (this is my interpretation of your picture). But for SVT this is not needed. We need only the "BOM" which is used in the process order 

Question 2: any "chemical material" in the BOM need a "REAL_SUB" with useful composition; the SVT algortihm is NOT drilling down the BOM as assigned to the process order. It "just" takes the BOM as assigned to the process order identify the material / check if they are "relevant" and if they are "relevant" try to find a "REAL_SUB". Here we should/must have the a "SVT BOS" to be used (and this is your "BOS" part in the picture)

Question 3: Many companies are using "quality checks" of many kind on "BOM" level (i skip here the details) to make sure that the "BOM" "fits" the "BOS" and the SVT algorithm can work without issues. But to make SVT work: this is not needed
