BOM change and new material cost

Dear all experts,

could you help me on the following scenario?

i am working on a project for sales, just like the assembly project.

when the design is finished, that means the BOM is OK.

then, we assign the BOM to the activity 10 whose WBS is TC-001-P.

we run MRP for the project and do the purchase and production.

but sometimes, design modification happens.

that means we have to change some materials of the BOM.

we run MRP again for the new materials and proceed.

but my client want to see the new materials cost seperately.

they want to have a new WBS, say, TC-001-D, to collect all the material cost and labor cost of design modification.

but i think the new bought materials will be consumed in the prodcution orders and the production orders are assgiend to the WBS TC-001-P.

how can i distinguish the new materials cost from the old ones?

could you give me some hints?

thank you very much.

if you are using a standard network template, you can create a new activity in the network under the WBS TC-001-D and assign the new materials to this activity.

If the cost has already been assigned from these new materials to TC-001-P, you can set the WBS TC-001-D as the cost receiver in settlement profile for TC-001-P and transfer cost to TC-001-D during Order settlement.
