Can we have a setup of a multiple level of Material Determination?

I have a requirement where the user should get the following options while creating a Sales order. I tried playing around with the Substitution reason but that way is not working. Not able to find about online posts as well.

Is this possible to have a multiple level of Material determination. So when we are creating a Sales order and we enter Mat1 it should give options of Mat2 or Mat3 and when the user selects Material 2 it should again give an Option of Mat4 or Mat5?

Mat1 ------> Mat2 -----> Mat4

| ....................|_____> Mat5

|______> Mat3 -----> Mat6

...................|______> Mat7

    While creating Material Determination, there would be a field to activate alternate materials. Not sure, whether, this would be in editable mode as I am not in front of SAP. I think, if that is activated, may be your requirement can be fulfilled

    Thank you Lakshmi,

    The field to activate alternate materials will allow us to achieve the following. When we enter Mat1 in the sales order screen, we can have n number of Materials to as an option for replacement of Mat1. However, is there a possible way to ensure that when we enter Mat1 it should give options of Mat2 or Mat3 and when the user selects Material 2 it should again give an Option of Mat4 or Mat5?

    I have not seen such option in SAP. Why do you need this extra step for Mat2 and Mat3? Why can't you directly have Mat4 , Mat5 , Mat6 and Mat7 as final selection options.

    I realised that this is not a feasible option in SAP. We cannot have multiple levels of material determination.
