Variant configurator characteristics value not displayed in material master

Dear all,

i've got an issue with the variant configurator.

We've got a class, lets say A of class type 300

Next to that we've got a couple of configurable materials (B) of type 200.

These materials (C) have other materials attached. These materials have certain characteristic values.

Now i want the characteristic values of these materials (C) to be displayed when we view the materials of type 200 (B).

I've created a characteristic (99) and via CL02 i linked this one to class A type 300.

Next to that I've created a dependency as well and linked this via CT04 to the chararcteristic.

Did i miss something?

I'd appreciate your help!

Kind regards,

    Hi all,

    a bit more information, maybe you can help me out:

    Configurable material, B in the example, has a variant configured via the MRP3 view. In the characteristics i want the value to be displayed of a characteristic of the sub material (C). In the submaterial this characteristic has been entered via the classifications view.

    When i view material B's characteristics value (same characteristic as the one entered in material C) it says: No constraints exist that could infer anything for the selected characteristic.

    However in material A (the variant which has the configurable material B attached) in transaction CU50 i see that the characteristics value does show materials C value.

    So it doesnt show in material B but does in A. How is this possible?

    • Thanks! I must say I am new to this functionality and try to handle a change request for a customer. They want the value ' buitenzijde' of material 543181 characteristic printed on a production order (it are a whole bunch of materials, not only 543181).

      I will read the documentation in your link, but if you have a clue how to get my issue solved, please share.

      Thanks again.

    Please maintain the configuration profile for material using the transaction CU41.

    Might help if you show sequential screen shots.

    While this may not be the issue, you might want to check in the characteristics if you have restricted the characteristics to certain class type only.

    Hi Rosh A,

    thanks. This one was set by me as well. However i've got a comparable characterisic (D). This one does not show the material C characteristic value in material A bus does show it in material B.

    My value is shown in A but not in B. I want it to be shown in B.
