PP solution for multilevel Production


I have a small query related to PP design as per below scenario

we do production for the Electrical equipments for which if I have an order and consider all levels of production to get my finish good , it'll go upto 15 Production Orders ( as per BOM levels) to get one finish part.

Could you pl suggest me as I am little unclear -

whether in SAP its better to use

  • Collective Orders

  • Discrete Orders release by Operation (with one BOM structure)

Thanks in advance..

Working with 15 prod order, it will make too much of data entry work. Split the material according to stage wise maximum of 3 or 4 stages. Process this 4 production order.

With single BOM structure, you can not see stock of each stage. Because from 1st opn to last opn it will show as a single material code and you will not get accurate cost which you can expect in stage wise.
