Variant BOM not exploding for SFGs

Hi Experts,

I am working on Variant configuration, This is my scenario


While creating sales order, characteristic values of variant materials like Steering, operator seat, Heater, welded doors, & welded shell have to display for selections.

I have configured as per the figure represents, here I have taken VAN, Welded Shell, Welded doors as KMAT materials and assigned Class 300 & its characteristic. Material type for Van is 25 and 70 for welded shell, doors.

Universal BOMs for Van, Welded doors, Welded shell are created using object dependencies and as well respective routings also.

But during creation of the sales order only header material related characteristic values are only displayed. if I maintained the second level materials (Welded doors and shell) as a second line item, then I am able to display the characteristic values for selection.

How to overcome this, without maintaining the second line item in the sales order?

During MRP run - MD50 system not exploding the BOM for welded shell, welded doors why ? Please suggest me, where I am making the mistake.

Please your suggestions will be very helpful to me.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Sridhar,

    Try adding the class of doors & shell to the material van. This will display all characteristics & you can configure in the sales order.

    The values assigned in the top level need to be transferred to the assemblies by using procedure.


    For doors use a procedure $SELF.DOOR = $PARENT.DOOR. This will copy the values from header to the lower level.
