If there's a children part that is equal to the parent part - in this case your BOM is recursive,means if you enter the Header material as child component also then you may get error BOM recursiveness.
Recursive BOM means nothing but the main header material will be acting as BOM component OK.
To make a conformation on that Go To Header level of the BOM and then in the structure tab the Recursive will be checked or ticked.
I hope it clears your doubt any queries please revert me back.
Check whether is there any discontinuity and recursive component with the same object number as the superior assembly please check that
if u have gain same problem check this link
Recusive BOM means you have added the header material of the BOM in the component also. Please check and varify the coponent you added and also varify do you nedd this in your business scenario?
Recursive BOM is used in many business scenarios like if we want to rebrand a material or repack a material in different container etc.
BOM is bill of material
Recursive BOM means a if parent part is also a child part.
if A is our product which is made up of B,C and some extent of A
then A (Tree Representation of BOM of material A)
Then this type of BOM is called recursive BOM
you can also take an example of Curd we need curd to make curd so this is perfect example of Recursive BOM.
i hope ur doubts are clear now..
revert in case of any query..

Kindly look at scenario i explained, it may be helpful. In case of oil industry if you want to repack the oil from bigger containers to smaller cans at that time they create a BOM with recursive and use this in production order.
