Change Manufacturing Bill of Material for Production

This scope item covers the change-master-controlled updates of a Manufacturing BOM that is used for the production process of components.

The change-number-controlled approach allows date-effectivity-based attributes management on the Manufacturing BOM (MBOM) header level and the Bill of Materials (BOM) items level. Setting the change number status to inactive releases the scope per change number. Once the status becomes inactive, changes are no longer possible. The MBOM header and items can only be changed with a new active change number. The change iteration process starts and ends again with setting the change number status to inactive.

The change-number-controlled update process is followed by the production process which uses the recently updated MBOM.
