    For variant configuration you have to use KMAT (configurable material type).

    Here the planningstrategy to be used is 25 & item category in the sales view is 0002.

    You have to create characteristics using t.code CT04, assign to the class (using t.code CL02), Give object dependencies in the characteristics.

    Create material master for raw materials. Then create a super BOM & routing.

    Then you have create a configuration profile using t.code CU41. Finally you can check using simulation with t.code cu50. If the results are ok, then you can create sale order & run mrp.

    For the particular scenario where you get a purchase order for 1000 nos from the customer, After mrp you will get a planned order for 1000nos. You can then partially conver this for 100 nos into production order. The remaining you can convert once you get the approval from the customer.

    Pl. refer to the below thread,
