MRP of alternative bom

Hi gurus,
how can i ensure explosion of desired alternative BOM during MRP run? Setting of BOM explosion strategy by production version is not helping. I am using mySAP ECC 6.0
Thanks and regards


Hello Abhik,
You have more options. You can use:
- lot size (defined in BOM header)
- production version (several option you have: lot size, manually assign a PV to a planned order) - it was mentioned by you
- you can use explosion date (OPPP, Logistcs > Production > MRP > Master Data > BOM by date)
MRP 4 (in material master) > 'BOM explosion/dependent requirement' tab > you can set selection method according to your wish.
