Alternate Products/Substitute products in SAP Bydesign

Hello Experts,

We are currently working on an opportunity who deals with trading and distribution of automobile spare parts. We are able to map their general business processes in the SAP ByDesign system on first evaluation.

However, we are facing a challenge where the customer needs to see the alternate/substitute parts of one material. To my understanding, we can use PRS field to allocate the Brand of these spare parts but Substitute materials for one material are hard to find. The substitute materials are common practice in automotive spare parts industries.

Can you please advise/guide us on how to approach this situation

    Dear Abhishek,

    Product specifications enable you to define and store the configuration information that characterizes such a product variant. The content of a product specification can consist of notes, attachments, and a selection of product property values that represent the customer requirements.

    Currently in Business By Design Material Substitute or Alternate Products is not supported as of now.

    Request you to register your idea/requirement for this feature in the SAP Business ByDesign
