    Hi,

    Variants are needed so that some transactions in SCM can be used for multiple executions.

    e.g /SAPAPO/TSCUBE transaction can be used for loading data from Multiple Info-cubes to be populated in various Key figures in Planning Area.

    So for ease of execution and to avoid human error while entering the parameter values, we save them in a particular variant for easy recall, and less user dependency.

    Hope this answers ur query

    Regards

    Hi

    I did not get your question correctly

    However you can note the following

    1)Variant - It acts as a Template for any transaction. So that u need not enter the fields again and again for the same information. By saving as a variant, u can call the variant and execute the transaction.

    This would be usefule especially while executing the transaction in background jobs

    2) Variants - Material that differ in certain characterstics say for ex color or size

    regards
