 Priorities for BOM Usage (Selection Priorities) Locate this document in the navigation structure

If the selection priorities for bill of material usage are used the system checks which bills of materials for the material with different usages exist and chooses the bill of materials whose usage has the highest priority. If a multiple BOM was found using the selection priority the order quantity decides which alternative is selected.

The usage of selection priorities generally takes place if the bill of material selection is defined in the material master according to order quantity. If the BOM selection is entered in the material master according to explosion date/production version even though the BOM usage prohibits this then the BOM selection is also executed using selection priorities.

Note Note

The selection priorities are assigned to the bill of material usage. The BOM usage is a parameter in the order type (see Settings for BOM Selection ).
