Go to CS01 and here create BOM for Material AAA with XYZ and save.

And again go to CS01 and create BOM for AAA with EFG, system will automatically create alternative BOM no 2 for this BOM.

And to use this in Subcontracting PO, create production version for material AAA in C223 and assign Production Version 2 with alternative BOM 2 in Subcontracting Purchase Info Record of Material AAA.

During PO processing, system will automatically copy BOM 2 in PO, but to select BOM1, click on "Explode BOM" button in "Material" Tab at Item details level in ME21N.
