Number of the material that the system uses in materials planning to replace the material to be discontinued once its warehouse stock is depleted.
In the material master record and also in the bill of material (BOM), you can define a follow-up material for a material to be discontinued. The follow-up material defined in the BOM has a higher priority than that in the material master record.
You must always specify a follow-up material in the material master record for the system to know a follow-up material if none has been specified in the BOM.
A component to be discontinued is replaced with a follow-up component at a particular date.
In the material master record of the component to be discontinued, you must set discontinuation indicator 1, enter a follow-up component, and specify an effective-out date.
Dependent parallel discontinuation
A group of materials is replaced with a group of materials; that is, if one component is to be discontinued (the main component), another component must also be discontinued (the subordinate component).
In the material master record of the main component to be discontinued, you must set discontinuation indicator 1, enter a follow-up component, and specify an effective-out date. In the material master record of the subordinate component, you must set discontinuation indicator 3.
