If the order start date is 18/03/08 and the order finish date is quite a long period for ex 30/04/08. Assume that your material X has more number of levels.
Initial BOM explosion date is 18/03/08. and if you make any change in BOM after by 20/03/08, with immediate effective. If you convert plan order to prod order at some level on 25/03/08. The effect of BOM will come into picture. And new BOM will be exploded during that time.
If you donot want the Effect of new BOM . And you want to explode the same BOM of Validity 18/03/08. Then Create BOM explosion ( T- code MDSP) number and assign it in PIR T code MD 61 ( go to Schedule lines tab page and settings heading ) . The system will explode with fixed key date of 18/03/08 ( old BOM. ) Till that requirement is converted in to stock.
If you assign the BOM explosion number then at this date system explode the bom again and correct changed material will be copied to planned order or production order.
You have customizing setting also whether BOM will be exploded as per BOM explosion number or with order finish/order start date.
Hope this will clear your doubt
