How to create Variant Configuration Material Master in SAP PP

Dear Friend's,

Pl 's guide me for How to Create Variant Configuration Material Master.

Give me step by step procedure for Creation of Variant Configuration.If some of you having screen shots for the same with one Example, that will be a very helpful to me for creating VC.

Thanks & Regards,

Sandeep N.Theurkar

    Hi,

    I am changing the sequence to the previous post so that you can understand easily

    Step1:

    • Define features of the product as characteristics - T code -CT04

    • Use characteristic values to describe customer requirements

    • Assign characteristics to class

    • Create variant class with class type 300 - Tcode CL02

    Step2:

    Create Material master with configurable type

    Alternatives:

    a) Material type KMAT

    b) Assign class to material in "Classification view"

    b) Material with configurable indicator in MRP-2 view

    Step3

    • Create Super BOM - Tcode CS01

    • It should contain variable parts & non variable parts

    Step 4

    • Create configuration profile Tcode - CU41

    • Assign variant class to config profile

    Step5

    • Create object dependencies - CT04

    • Use characteristics & their values

    Step6

    Assign object dependencies to BOM components - T code-CS02

    Step7

    Simulate the configuration - Tcode - CU50

    Hope you can get this.

    pl. award if it is helpful

    Thanks and regards

    Hi sandeep

    In creating Variant configuration for a material , follow the steps.

    1) CT04 : Create the characteristics which you have for the material.

    2) CL01 : Create the class with class type 300 /200 and assign the creaed characteristcis

    in step1 here .

    3) MM01 : create the Configurable materila with Mat type KMAT , and in CLASSIFICATION

    view assign the class which you have prepared .

    So no w you can able to Configure a material , for that you need to wirte the related

    Object depandenices , Objeect depandencies are of 4 types

    1) PROCEDURES :

    TCODE : CU01

    2) PRECONDITION:

    TCODE : CUO1

    3) CONSTRAINTS :

    TCODE :CU21

    4) Actions

    The central settings of a material like which type of BOM and whether it belongs to single

    level or multi level and some mote important data can be maintained in Configuration Profile.

    Configuration Profile :

    TCODE : CU41

    The Object dependencies you prepared can be attached in Configuration Profile such as

    PROCEDURES AND CONSTRAINTS.

    Preconditions can be assigned in characteristics value level and in characteristic level but not in Configuration profile.

    after assigning all Object dependencies you can check the consistency of the model by using TCODE : CU50 ( wit hthis one particularly you can check whether your configuratio n is

    working as you desired )

    Please come back to me if you have any queries.

    Reward points if it is helpful.

    Hi,

    Eg: Ford car.If a sale order is raised for fiesta lxi model the system should choose red colour & for vxi blue colour respectively.

    ie you need to define the characteristic and assign the values .

    This characteristic need to assigned to class.

    class need to be assigned to material master

    1. T.code : CT04(characteristic) FORD_MODEL, Choose single value & entry required tab & give the input as 01 - fiesta_lxi & 02 - fiesta_vxi.( characteristic values)

    2.Tcode: CT04, FORD_BODY( another characteristic)

    Choose single value , don't click entry required.

    01 - Red( characteristic values)

    02- Blue

    3. Create class T.code : CL02

    fiesta_class

    type : 300

    4. OBJECT DEPENDENCY:

    T.CODE : CT04

    FORD_MODEL

    CLICK VALUES TAB,

    IN FIESTA_LXI CLICK THE 'O' meant for Obj dependency, action & extra.

    Edit the dependecy,

    010 $Self.ford_body = '01'. & save

    Repeat the same for FIEST_VXI & instead of '01' give '02' for blue colour.

    , then create a ROH as ford_body. & a KMAT material for the car. .

    Then create a Super BOM with usage 3 & give component as ford_body

    Then use T.code cu41 (Create config profile)

    enter a profile name & class 300 & choose class assignment, choose fiest_class ,

    Use T.code cu50 to check the values.

    Then create a sale order.

    Pl. reward if helpful.

    Hi,

    u can create KMAT material type or any other material type like FERT but in basic data 2 view material is configurable has to select. other process are same which other posted.

      Hi Romena,

      You are not missing anything.this functionality is pre-configured in material master(mm01).You can easily find it out in Basic data view 2 (at the bottom) in material Master.

      Please revert if required.

      thanking you in anticipation

    Hi Sandeep,

    Please find the answer below and revert if required-

    **Material Master Data for Configurable Materials**

    **You use central maintenance functions to create material master records for configurable**

    **materials. There is some data that you need to maintain specifically for configurable materials:**

    **Basic Data**

    **Material is configurable indicator X**

    **Sales**

    **Item category group 0002 or 0004**

    **Delivering plant**

    **MRP**

    **Strategy group For example, 25**

    **MRP type For example, PD**

    **Not ND**

    **MRP lot size EX**

    **Availability check (checking group) 02**

    **Individ./collective 1**

    Above details are rhe basic/essential/primary material master data for for Variant configuration Purposes in SAP-PP.

    Thanking you in anticipation

    Regards
