BOM application

Hi PP Experts,

Can anybody tell me why it is need to maintain BOM application and where we get its effect.

Former Member


Mainly BOM application is used wheather BOM is used for MRP explosion/Costing/Planned orders etc.This is used to select the BOM with selection ID. In the selection ID, priority & Usage is assigned in this.

And in BOM application we can maintain whether selection of Alt determination & manual selection of prod version during production order.

This manual selection of prod version only worked when you create a prod order by CO01, not by converting from planned order to prod order.

In CS12 ie during exploding BOM it will ask you for the BOM application..

BOm application is specified in SPRO-> BOM->Alternative determination in Application areas->Define alternative determination for production orders

OS30 or OPJM is the T. Code.

You need to have 1. Define order of priority for BOM usages 2. Define BOM statuses in place to configure the BOM Application.

The defaulted on is PP01 which use in order type depenednt parameter OPL8.

Hope it will help you.
