Query on Order BOM creation - Table KDST

Dear Experts,

I am new to Variant configuration. I am unable to understand how this table KDST table is getting updated while we create order BOM via sale order creation. My client has variant configuration process as given as follows, There is a finished material say 00001 which is a configurable material has variant class- 300,configuration profile and assigned object dependencies in BOM. In its configuration profile it has a order BOM creation with multi level BOM explosion and has BOM type- PP01.

While creating a sale order for the configurable material we update the configuration as per requirements and while simulating in CU51 the BOM gets exploded. Sale order is saved but the table entries for table KDST is being created with an another variant material say 00003 and not with the finished configurable material. The component 00003 is in the 3rd level of finished mater 00001 production BOM. Also when i check the transaction CS63 the BOM is created for component 00003 and not for 00001.

My query is how come the order BOM in CS63/ table KDST entries are created with the component 00003 and not with finished material 00001? Also we have not included the component 00003 in the sale order. Eventhough this query is basic please help me. I need to know how the order BOM / KDST table entries gets updated when we process the sale order for configurable material

    J Balakrishnan,

    My understanding is you can create order BOM for sales order or with proper configuration an order BOM will be auto created once sales order is created in system. you can edit this BOM as per your need later. In your case if order BOM is only getting created for 3rd level item , please check sales order is created for which material?

    Also check SAP help on result oriented order BOM , as you are dealing with configurable material. Check below link.
