We want to explode Bill of Material automatically at time of Order entry and explode an Equipment BOM in the sales order. What are the setting required?
Use an item category that is configured for bills of material for having a sales BOM to explode automatically.
Standard SAP item categories are :
- TAQ - Pricing and inventory control take place at the BOM header level
- TAP - Pricing and inventory control take place at the BOM item level
- These can be automatically derived using the item category groups ERLA and LUMF, respectively.
If you want the BOM to explode at the sales order page, the item category TAQ or TAP based on Main item or sub item pricing, should have the structure scope set to 'A'. This will ensure that the BOM would explode.
