Help required about MD61

Hi all,

My client wants to enter the demand for a carton of cigars in MD61.each carton contains 12 packs and each pack 10 cigars.Now they do not want to have seperate material number for cartons.So i can not use the carton as header material in BOM and define the packs as components.They create Purchase orders only for Packs and not for carton.

How can i let system know that the demand is of 12 packs when they enter the demand as 1 carton with both of them having same material no.

the cartons are not managed in inventory

Can you throw some light...Full award...

Tell me how they enter the PO qty?

Let us say Material no X and qty requiured is 12

then in PO they enter

X PO qty is 12 and unit oif measure PACK

If so proceed as below

Create material with base unit as CORTON and alternate unit as PACK.

Give the relation of alternate unit of measure and BUM

As 12 pack = 1 CARTON.

Enter the PO unit as PACK.

Hence in MD61 enter the qty in carton and PO will be placed in PACK.

I hope u got the point
