    The sales orders for the finished product has usually a make-to-order

    strategy, but the assembly groups and the key component are produced as

    make-to-stock. To create production orders with a valuation in a make-tostock

    segment, the IS Mill solution is required on R/3-side. Typically the

    ATP check for the sales order uses the CTP functionality. If the production

    of the basic raw material is planned as well or significant set-up is required

    for the assembly group, block planning is often used. Another feature of

    this scenario is that the characteristics requirements for the batch selection

    are usually not discrete values but ranges of values.

    Differing from the variant configuration not only the finished product is

    configurable but many assembly levels and the key component have batch

    characteristics as well. For the finished product both class types for variant

    configuration and for batches are required.

    Hi SCM APO,

    i am pasting text in 3 parts whichs from SAP help copied from one of the Book, go through it and frame you question in specific way.

    Configure-to-order with propagation is a very common scenario for the

    mill industries. This scenario is again a make-to-order scenario, though

    sometimes without the use of a make-to-stock requirements class. The peculiarity

    in this process is that assembly groups and key components (steel

    coils, paper reels, ...) have batch characteristics which are important for

    planning. Since the mill industries have a divergent material flow, many

    different finished products will have dependent demands for the key components.

    These dependent demands might have different requirements for

    the characteristic values of the batches. Additionally these key components

    have usually a comparatively long lead time. One main objective in this

    scenario is therefore usually to check whether the right amount of the key

    component with the required properties is available. These properties are

    recorded as the batch valuation.

    Hope it helps you.
