Spare part indicator


could you please help me with a suggestion related to the subject below?

In the engineering BOM (from which I copy the production BOM) in the view tab Status/Lng Text, the Spare part indicator is completed with the status of the component.

After creating production BOM from engineering BOM (using transaction CS01 - copy from E-BOM) this info doesn't appear any more.

Could you please explain, why?

Thanks a lot,

Hi Catalin,

In OS20, For BOM usage 1 (Production) - Spare Entry may be optional.

Spare Parts means a material used to replace a defective part.

This material may or may not be kept in stock.

Spare parts are not restored to working condition. Spare parts can be entered in maintenance BOMs.
