Maintaining empties for full product using BOM.


I need to configure empties processing in SAP Retail.

I found that SAP offer BOM for this purposes. I’ve tried it in SAP Retail but still have two issues:

1. Why SAP doesn’t allow to change empties in BOM after PO for full product was created.

I’ve found in “If you access BOM maintenance, but want to create or change an empties BOM for a different unit of measure of the same full product, you can do so by choosing Other unit of measure (header). However, this is not possible once you have changed an existing BOM for a specific unit of measure, or assigned empties to the full product for the unit of measure.”.

I can’t understand the meaning. Could anyone explain me what does it mean?

2. I’d like that system in Sales Order will automatically add empties position after adding full product like it works in Purchase Order. Is it possible?
