In the BoM creation process, if we add the same item as an item within BoM, the system gives an error as follows:
BoM circulation detected. Do you want to continue?
And there are both options Yes and No.
I just want to know why the system is giving the option "Yes" ?
Are there any special circumstances where the "Yes" option is used?
If yes, please provide an example.
I've seen some cases where a BOM consumes its own finished good as a raw material, typically in a repair or re-work situation where additional labor needs to be applied, and where the scheduling of the repair work as a standard production order is desired.
It is strange, and of course costing will not like it. I haven't tried that scenario in a FIFO costing setup, only standard cost.
Otherwise, I think answering Yes is probably an error.
Ideally, you can not have same item used in the BOM.
In case, if you are doing even minor process on that item, you should create the separate component item no. to avoid any circular reference.
Just imagine the situation, You need Item A + B + C (Components) to produce the Item A. In this case, system would go in loop while doing the costing, planning etc. for Raw Material A.
Better you create Item A as separate item for Raw Material like A1 or RM(A) etc. to avoid any circular reference.
