During preference determination, the SAP GTS system checks for all components of a BOM that, due to lack of other information, it considers as non-originating materials, whether the rules of origin that apply to the final product have been met and/or calculates the minimum sales price of this product.
You set up the transfer of BOMs to SAP GTS in the Customizing of the feeder system. In SAP ECC, choose Sales and Distribution → Foreign Trade/Customs → SAP Global Trade Services - Plug-In → Control Data for Transfer to SAP Global Trade Services → Control Transfer of Bills of Product for Preference and Re-Export.
In an SAP S/4HANA feeder system, choose Integration with Other SAP Components → Integration with Governance, Risk and Compliance → SAP Global Trade Services → Control Data for Transfer to SAP Global Trade Services → Control Transfer of Bills of Product for Preference and Re-Export instead.
You can control the transfer of BOMs at three levels. In each case, you have to make settings at global level (Control Settings for BOM Transfer - Global folder in the dialog structure). If required, you can also make additional settings for individual countries. If this differentiation is not sufficient, you can control the BOM transfer at plant level. The selection of the control parameters is the same at each level.
You must always decide on the BOM category in transfer control. If you want to transfer fixed BOMs, choose category 1 (BOM Category: Static). Category 2 (BOM Category: Configurable) is used to transfer order-dependent BOMs of configurable materials.
In the control settings for the transfer of fixed BOMs, enter the BOM application for discrete manufacturing or – if you are using PP-PI – for process manufacturing in the BOM Application field. In the control settings for transferring configurable BOMs, select the BOM application for sales and distribution.
You can define BOM applications in Customizing for production (menu path: Production → Shop Floor Control → Operations → Bill of Material Selection → Define Applications).
If you set an indicator for the BOM usage, the feeder system discards the BOM items that are not flagged for this usage during the transfer to SAP GTS. For example, if you set the Production BOM indicator, only BOM items flagged as relevant for production in the Status/Lng Text view of the item details can be transferred to SAP GTS.
You define BOM usages in Customizing for production (menu path: Production → Basic Data → Bill of Material → General Data → BOM Usage → Define BOM Usages).
In transfer control, you can set up additional filters for selecting BOMs that are relevant for transfer. The configuration of these filters is the same on all three transfer levels. For example, if you enter individual BOM usages in the BOM Usage folder of the dialog structure, the feeder system only transfers BOMs of these usages to SAP GTS.
