Storage Location and Supply Area Determination in BOM Explosion

Description

In Customizing for MRP or for Repetitive Manufacturing, in step Define Storage Location and Supply Area Determination for BOM Explosion, you define the strategy the system is to use to find the issue storage location from which the components are withdrawn in MRP and in backflushing. This logic is also used for determining the supply area.

In BOM explosion, the system tries to find a storage location in the BOM item (component). If no issue storage location has been defined for the BOM item, the system reads the MRP group of the assembly or of the finished product and so determines the strategy for storage location or supply area determination.

The following strategies for storage location determination are available:

You use this procedure for determining the issue location if you always withdraw one component from one specific storage location.
If no proposal issue location has been maintained, the system uses the receiving storage location of the assembly or the finished product as the issue storage location for the components. The receiving storage location may be maintained in the production version of the assembly in the field Issue storage location or in the material master record of the assembly in the field To location or in the the material master record for the assembly in the field Issue. stor. location . If none of these entries have been maintained, the system can also use the 'to location' in the backflushing transaction for Repetitive Manufacturing as the issue storage location for the components.
You use this procedure for determining the issue storage location if all the components lie together at a storage location close to the production line where they are needed.
