Implementing Variant configuration with Non-configurable assembly


Hi Gurus!

I have a scenario but don't know how to implement it.

My header material is configurable and has 3 semi-finished components under it. One of the semi-finished component contains a BOM with 2 raw materials, but this component is not configurable. I mean my model has a multi-level BOM but single a single level configuration. I want to implement an assemble-to-order manufacturing process for the header material. The component with 2 BOM items is manufactured in-house and the other semi-finished components are procured externally.

What kind of planning strategy should I use at the header level and should I maintain any special planning strategy for the non-configurable assembly?

I am new to SAP and also to variant configuration. So please give detailed explanation.

I have read the Planning strategies in the link SAP Library - Demand Management (PP-MP-DEM) but it is too confusing to me.

Best Regards,
