Why production version is important in S4- Hana?

1. BOM Selection – The BOM Selection can only be done with the Production version.In ECC the Production version selection was optional which was maintained in the Material Master>MRP4>BOM.

Now In S4 the below will be only available and the BOM Selection field has been removed.

2. Sub Contracting Process:

ECC: In ECC for subcontracting process where you need to send components to the Job work vendor a Production BOM will be created with External procurement and Special procurement as 30.

S4 Hana – Along with the Material master setting , the Production version is mandatory. If PV is not maintained then in the P.req / P.Order you will not find the the BOM Explosion.

3. Conversion Report:

For Green Field Projects , this becomes one of the Key Master data.

In case if you are into Migration Project, then Running this report -CS_BOM_PRODVER_MIGRATION02 is mandatory for creation of the production version as part of conversion.
