    Dear Raja,

    I hope Both are same

    Configurable material

    A substance that can have variants such as a car can have different paint, trim, and engines.

    Configurable materials contain a super bill of material (BOM) that contains all components for producing each variant of the material. When configuring a material, only the components and operations needed for a variant are chosen.

    Configurable materials are created in a material type that is designated for the configuration, material type KMAT in the standard system, or the Material is configurable indicator is activated in the material master record.

    I hope this will help you,

    Regards,

    Murali.

      Confugurable material is exactly as per Murali described.

      Configured material are material that you preconfigure in the material master and the same configuration gets copied in your sales order.

    Hi

    As explained by the friend both are the same

    Before creating the material we will mention it is configurable material

    The outcome of that that is finished product is configurated material

    This is logical answer

    If something differs in SAP Experts pls correct me

    Regards

    Raja
