    Hi Kaushal..

    ur question is a bit not clear....

    See u use variant configuration when there are lot of possible combinations/variants.. u don't need to create material for each and every combination..u just create one configurable material which encompasses all the variant combinations with the help of characteristics and there value...

    When u create sales order then a configuration screen appears where u assign the desired values to material characteristics defined. Corresponding materials and operations get picked from the Super BOM and Super Routing. Material is checked for availabilty with those particular chars. If not available then during MRP the Planned order will be generated and which in turn converted to production order...Then u do the GR and delivery to sales order is done...

    this is the cycle...

    If you need to know to how to configure the variant configuration then let me know.. even there are many postes related to that...

    Let me know if ur doubt gets cleared to some extent.... Gurus let me know if i am wrong in explaining him..

      1. Create the Characteristics in CT04.

      2. Create the Class in CL02. (Class type 300)

      3. Assign the characteristics to the above created class.

      4. Create the material (Product) in MM01 with material type KMAT.

      5. Assign the Class created in Step 2 to Classification view of Material.

      6. Create the configuration Profile in CU41. to the necessary setting to in it.

      7. Write the dependencies (Precondition, sele, procedure) in CU01.and Create Dependency net in CU21.

      8. Assign sele, procedure, Dependency net in Configuration Profile.

      9. Assign Preconditons to Chracteristics or Char values in Class.

      10. Check the model in CU50. whether your depencies or working file or not.
