Subcontracting With Variant Configuration materials


Trying to use the subcontracting process with variant config materials. The goal is to be able to select differnt BOM materials based on selection procedures from the BOM. Current testing shows that the proper item cat does not appear in the Purchase Req. I believe this is affecting the functionality. We have the special procurment key of 30 selected in the material and a BOM with selection procedures to pick the proper Bom material. Please advise if this can be done and if so how to go about it.

      I mean to say Produciton Version

      Production Version

      Key which determines the various production techniques according to which

      a material can be manufactured.

      The production version determines the following:

      o the BOM alternative for a BOM explosion

      o the task list type, the task list group and the task list group

      counter for allocation to task lists

      o lot-size restrictions for repetitive manufacturing

      In the subcontracting Inforecord- Purchasing Org data 1 screen - under the Tax code field.
