    Hi,

    Pls check consistency of Configuration in CU51 : Configuration simulation check.

    Whether your configuarion is consistent or not.

    Hello Tara,

    where do you start your process?

    My master data in short:

    1) Material master

    Type FERT.

    Item category group in SD: 0002 (Configuration)

    MRP procurement type X (inhouse and externally)

    Strategy group 25 (Make-to-order for configurable material)

    2) Additionally of course the variant config related settings, and config profile etc.

    3) Maintained BOM and routing for material to be able to create Prod order

    With this I can run the following process:

    1) Create sales order, configure in make-to-order mode with item category TAC

    2) Run MRP e.g. MD50 and create planned order

    3) In MD04 I can convert the planned order into a production order

    So, in general your set-up looks ok. Where does your process fail in detail?

    Best regards,

    Stefan

    just a query.

    r u using discreet anufacturing right? make sure not repetative manufacturing.

    if repetative then results are ok.

    Hi,

    As i know, you should add the object denpendency for the variant configuration, and then maintain the configuration profile.Although i don't use the strategy 25, i think it's similar to 20 strategy.

    Dear Tara,

    As you are saying that after running the mrp, system is creating the planned order with order type KD and because of the order type KD system is not allowing you to convert planned order into production order, right?

    My suggestion is first check the CIR , there i think you have given the reqmt type different than KEK.

    If you are using the strategy 25 than reqmt type should be KEK.

    Go to spro, demand management-planning strategy and select the strategy 25 and check the reqmt type for customer reqmt.It should be KEK.

    Check this configuration.
