Class Item in BOM

I'm using Class Item (Item Cat: K) in my BOM, and I have doubts in the followings:

1. Can a class item be replaced by more than one material?

2. When I enter the characteristics in the header material, if there are more than one materials suits that, the system always pick the first one. Can I do the setting like: the system would prompt for user to choose among those suitable materials?

Pls kindly give some lights on that. Thank you.

Dear Ken,

the issue you are facing is cause of process not because of SAP, if with a single values 2 components are possible to select you need to change this selection process , create one more characterstic which will decided between subitem 1 or sunitem 2

ex. CHAR_ADDITINAL_CHECK values could be SUB1 and SUB2 , assign this SUB1 and SUB2 to respective materials

When I explode in t-code CU50,

Enter ProductCat B in MainItem, SubItem 3 is chosen.


Enter ProdcutCat A in MainItem, SubItem 1 or SubItem2 will be selected.

Check it out and come back for further discussion.

Hope it helps you.
