Variant Configuration in SAP Business One

We are implementing SAP Business One. In the BOM calculation, we need to set some product variants, one of them is the wall thickness of the steel tube. For example, the theoretical thickness in BOM is 2.4 mm. At purchasing, we will choose the thickness available in the market at that time. The tolerance of the thickness is plus or minus 10% of 2.4 mm. We would choose 2.25 mm thickness if it is available. SAP Business One shall issue the purchase order with 2.25 mm thickness instead of 2.4 mm. After receiving, the thickness shall be 2.25 mm in the inventory.

In this case, the wall thickness shall be a product variant or variable in our SAP B1 system from BOM to purchasing order to inventory management. Our SAP B1 Consultant advised us that this is not feasible in SAP B1. The Consultant suggested additional development will be required.

Is it possible to use VC in setting up BOM calculation? Appreciate your comments.
