Item Category - Not relevant to Printing/Pricing/Billing etc

Hi Experts,

I have a scenario where we need an Item Category which should act like a dummy part i.. Not relevant to printing, Billing, Shipping etc..

The scenario is: We have a VC high level part, which acts like a KIT and once we configure the high level VC, it explodes the sales BOM and brings the KIT component.. at this point, the high level VC, should become a dummy part and it should not be relevant to any thing such as Price, cost, billing, shipping, printing etc.. KIT component acts as a real part..

Standard SAP Item category group 0004 can be used for KIT functionality with VC configuration which has Item category TAM..but relevant to printing, pricing, billing etc..

So we need an Item Category like TAM i..e which can be VC configured but at the same time, it should not be relevant to any thing except VC configuration...

what are the settings i need to look into..? Did any body did this kind of scenario?..

I really appreciate your help.. and it's kind of urgent issue..

Thanks & Regards,

Siva Kanth

    in VOV7 go for new item category which is copy of TAM.

    Billing Relevance -Blank (Not relavant for billing)

    Pricing -Blank

    You dont have to maintain copying control if you dont want to see this material in delivery.

    Thank you

      Hi Anil,

      Thank you for your reply.

      The steps you said are enough to make the Item as Non- relevant to billing, Pricing.. what about Printing and other areas i have to consider so that this part won't show up and won't have any issues?

      Did you worked with this kind of scenario before?

      Thanks & Regards,
