Hi All,

I have been working on EH&S BOMBOS and to my understanding Bill of materials (BOM) is created for finished and semi finished goods. From the Bill of material we can create composition of a specification and the system will update Bill of substance created in the composition of the BOM material. To elaborate further I will write down the steps that I have performed.

1) In CS01 I have created BOM for material XXXXXX and ensured the material is Env Rlt. Also, specification is assigned to the materisl as type REAL_SUB.

2) After that I have listed the components in CS02 for BOM material created i.e.. say 4 components. I also ensured that the components listed also has the REAL_SUB specification assigned with Env Rlt.

3)In CG37 when I executed the wordlist for the BOM material I am getting the errors as "Composition for bill of material xxxxxx  and plant xxxx has not been generated; see log.

The log shows the error message as "Parent object contains error" and "Invalid reference value in field OWNID". I checked for environment parameters BOMBOS_OWNID the parameter value is assigned with 0000050091. I am not sure whether the value maintained is correct or not. Please suggest what is this BOMBOS_OWNID parameter and what should be the value for the same. Now I deleted the parameter value defined for BOMBOS_OWNID and the system is throwing an error "Environment parameter BOMBOS_OWNID was not found".

Please help in resolving the issue.

Thanks in advance

Hi Darshan,

BOMBOS needs a data provider it can use so you need to maintain one as environment parameter of type BOMBOS_OWNID. Maintain the address in CVD5 and then check table ADRC for the address number (field ADDRNUMBER), This number needs to be maintained in the environment parameter.
