Eligibility to be a Material Variant

Hi Experts,

I have several materials describing its name and size as under:

1. M S FLAT 10 X 100MM

2. M S FLAT 10 X 120MM

3. M S FLAT 10 X 200MM

All above materials are discrete materials and no Variant Configuration is defined.

My query is: How can we identify whether these materials can be u2018Material Variantu2019?

    The Material Variants(MV) are the Stock items in VC. The requirement to define the materials as MV should come from the business. The idea is to deliver certain products as quickly as possible to the customers.

    We can create any no of MV's as per the Product design and Market demand

    The material variant is a Finished Product and assigned with K-mat in Basic Data-II view with a tick as Variant

    • Hi Brahmaji,

      The query is raised because we are already using VC for our business. Now some other products are introduced that is different in all manners then existing. We are checking the possibility whether can we use the existing VC with little change or we have to write VC for new materials from the scratch.
