    Hi,

    For variant configuration use strategy 25. Strategy 40 can not use.

    Create Sales order with required character. PIR not possible to create.

    Variant Production is only possible for MTO scenario.

    Instated of PIR you maintain CIR in MD81 and then run the MRP. You will get the expected result.

    Hi Shiv,

    You can use strategy 40 if you wish in case of Material Variant of your Configurable Material but you can't use any MTS strategy like 10,11, 40 etc. in case of Configurable Material and you can have pl. order against only SO for configurable material.

    However you can use all pure MTS strategies in case of Material Variants of your Configurable Material same way as in case of normal materials by creating demand ( PIR) and get pl. order against PIR and go ahead.

    You can use following strategies for Variant Configuration :

    25 - MTO Production for Configurabel Material

    26- MTO Production for Material Variant

    55- Planning Variants w/o Final Assembly

    65- Planning Variants w/ a Planning Material

    Hope this clarifies your doubt.

    Regards,

      Hi,

      ur rt see i made one material in which in basic data 2 i made material is configrable & in classification view given variant class 300 & maintained characterstic for this class

      In characterstic i maintained different values

      IN MM now i m useing 40 start.

      while creating PIR given values for characterstic now

      my problem is that when i m taking MRP run & creating production order then this characterstic values are not coming in production order due to that i m not able to produce material with required character value.

      Thanks
