 Assembly Orders in Order Change Management Locate this document in the navigation structure


You can use this function to adapt an assembly order to configuration changes in the sales order when actual costs have already been debited for this order (for example, by confirmations or material withdrawals).

The process that starts with the determination of the necessary changes and ends with the adaption of the assembly order is called Change comparison .

Note Note

If you use this function, it is always used for configuration changes, also when an automatic new explosion of the master data would suffice.

End of the note.


This function integrates Order Change Management and Assembly Processing with Production Orders . This provides functions from order change management that have been modified for assembly processing.


To use this function, the following prerequisites must be met:

  • Overall change profile in the material master

The overall profile for order change management must be entered in the material master under Work scheduling in the Overall profile field (see Creating Initiating Object Records ).

  • Material with assembly processing

Assembly processing must be defined for the material (see Special Settings for Production Orders ). That is, the material has planning strategy 82 (material master area MRP) .


The changes are executed in the following ways:

  • Execute change comparison automatically

If changes up to the conflict level "information" have occurred in the production order, the system executes the change comparison automatically.

  • Complete change comparison manually

If at least one change step has the conflict level "warning" or "error", the change comparison must be completed manually (production order status MADJ = manual adjustment necessary). The production order changes are executed in the Overview of the Change Steps .

You set the changes that have lead to an error to Do not execute . You can decide whether or not changes that have lead to a warning are to be executed.

When you have processed all change steps, complete the change comparison (see Completing a Change Comparison ).
