 Editing Production Versions Locate this document in the navigation structure


You use production versions to determine which alternative BOM is used with a routing to produce a material or create a master production schedule.


Production versions are used in sales & operations planning (SOP), material requirements planning, creating production orders as well as product costing to select the most suitable routing.


The material, for which you want to create a production version, must exist in the system.


For one material you can have several production versions for various validity periods and lot-size ranges.

You assign each production version to an alternative BOM and up to three work centers for different planning levels.

  • In detailed planning you determine which routing is used for materials requirements planning, product costing and in production orders.

  • In rate-based planning you determine which (rate) routing is used in repetitive manufacturing.

  • In preliminary planning you determine which rough-cut planning profile is used for sales and operations planning.

  • If you want to create capacity requirements during preliminary planning, you can use a routing instead of a rough-cut planning profile.


You edit production versions for a material in the material master record in the Work scheduling view (see the SAP Library Material Master (LO-MD-MM). There you can:

  • Create several production versions for one material/routing combination

  • Delete production versions
