Variant configuration question????

Hi gurus,

I have done variant configuration. Created a configurable material, created class and characteristics.

E.g. My configurable material is a door. The characteristics are Colour/Size/Type etc.

The values are: Colour:Green/Red - Size:2m/2.5m(wood) - Type: Small/big

I want to order from suppliers Red colour, Green colour, wood etc and keep them in stock.

How can I connect values with materials Red colour, Green colour etc in order to reduce their stock every time a Sales Order takes place????

How can I say for example that Green reduces 2kg and Red 3kg of the stocked colours? or for example the small wood 2 square m /the big 3 sqm?????etc

I do not want to use PP and MRP...I do not want a Production order to be created for every Sales order, I want for Every Sales Order the Stock of raw materials to be reduced..

Thank you in advance.

    Hi Theodoros

    Sorry for insufficient reply but it was just because u asked

    How can I connect values with materials Red colour, Green colour etc in order to reduce their stock every time a Sales Order takes place????

    Any way, in my opinion, without MRP settings, stock reduction will not take place.

    Experts please correct me if I am wrong.

      the material is the door...

      I have conected values and I have done all the steps you described as I said. I now want to find the way to connect values with raw materials in stock in order to reduce the stock every time a Sales order takes place. Even if it takes MRP....PP is the one I am not willing to use at all.

      thank you.

    Hi Theodoros

    Steps for Variant Configuration in SD

    Some light on Variant Configuration in Detail.

    Generally, in SD variant is effectively used for pricing for variant. The following configuration with example will be able to assist you in same regard.

    The procedure is as follows:

    u2022 Create a Material - KMAT as Material Type with Item Category - 002 by using TCode MM02

    u2022 Create Charateristics using TCode CT04 - Zbike, where in values mention the Color of the bile like Red, Blue etc

    u2022 Create another Characteristics using TCode CT04 - ZPrice, where directly go the additional data tab and maintain the table SDCOM and field VKOND (ABAP Dictionary it will ask for)

    u2022 Assign these two characteristics to a Class using TCode CL01 - ZBikeclass (Type 300) in characteristics tab page.

    u2022 Then go to Configuration Profile using TCode CU41 select the material and enter the description click on the Class assignment, i.e., assign Zbikclass.

    u2022 Now go back to Characteristic using TCode CT04 - enter Zbike -go to values- select Red- go to extras - Other Dependencies - Select Procedure enter in front 10 write - $self.ZPrice='Red' and save

    u2022 Now go back go to Extras - Other Dependencies - Assignments and Assign relationship ( by default it will come just save)

    u2022 Now select Blue- go to Extras - Other Dependencies - Editor - Select Procedure enter in front of 10 write - $self.ZPrice='Blue' and save

    u2022 Now go back go to Extras - Other Dependencies - Assignments and Assign relationship ( by default it will come just save)

    u2022 Now go to Condition Record using TCode VK11 - Enter VA00 (Condition)(For Std RVA001 Pricing Procedure) - enter variant Red and Blue give the rates accordingly and create the sales order.

    u2022 Activate the variant configuration in Sales Document make the above effective or in use.
