Dep.req. with usage probability

Dear guru's,

We try to setup a working variant configurator, but we are not able to get the dependent requirements right.

We use planning strategy 56, we have a superbom with all possible components, the BOM items have a selection condition based on class 200.

We also have a configuration profile and a planning profile. IN MD61 we are able to enter the usage probabilities.

The result however is disappointing: the planned orders generated by MRP show that the full qty is passed on to the components instead of the part as defined in the usage probablity.

Any thoughts? Your help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Albert-Jan

    Albert,

    Wondering if following points are checked

    1.components should not be configured with strategy group 70 or 59.

    2. Characteristics that have usage probability in demand management are marked as Relevant for planning.

    Hope this helps, else please come back.

    Thanks,

    Ram

    Albert,

    SAP requires that "In order to maintain usage probabilities, you must flag them as relevant for planning in the planning profile"

    When you activate a combination value key in the planning profile, the characteristic associated with the combination value key is considered during demand planning.

    Once you have marked the required char. as relavant for Characteristics planning the model should work.

    Hope these inputs help.

    Thanks,

    Ram
