Configurable BOM

Hi,

I'm new to SAP S&D module.

My company are dealing with furnitures (mainly chairs and tables).

Had been tasked to do a configurable BOM for the sales order.

Example: during the creation of sales order, i can choose the type of color, size, legs of tables/chairs by a dropdown list. (make to order)

When creating the sales order, it trigger off the prouction order and to bring the stock back to warehouse and continue with the rest of the SD process (delivery, invoice..)

Please guide me (preferred) or provide me with links to read up that can guide be step by step.

Much help is needed. Greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

    This you can achieve with Variant configuration, as soon as you select the characteristics in sales order and save and Once you run the MRP, system will create planned order then convert to Production order etc followed by production process.

    For more info on Variant Configuration you can refer the Forum.

    Hope it helps

    Hello,

    The procedure is as follows:

    1. Create a Configurable Material - KMAT type with Item category (002)

    2. Create Charateristics in CT04 - ZChair, where in values mention the legs like 2,4 etc

    Create Charateristics in CT04 - ZColour, where in values mention the values like black, red, etc

    Create another characteristics in CT04 - ZPrice, where directly go the additional data tab and maintain the table SDCOM and field VKOND

    3. Assign these two characteristics to a Class in CL01 - Zfurniture ( Type 300) in characteristics tab page.

    Then go to CU41 Configuration profile select the material and enter the description click on the class assignment ie assign Zfurniture

    4.Now go back to CT04 - enter ZChair -go to values- select Leg 2- go to extras - Other Dependencies - Select Procedure enter in front write - $self.ZPrice='2' and save

    Now go back go to extras - Other Dependencies - assignments and assign relationship ( by default it will come just save)

    Now select Black- go to extras - Other Dependencies - Editor - Select Procedure enter in front of it write - $self.ZPrice='Black' and save

    Now go back go to extras - Other Dependencies - assignments and assign relationship ( by default it will come just save)

    Now go to VK11 - Enter VA00 (Condition)(For Std RVA001 Pricing Procedure) - enter variant Legs 2 & 4 give the prices accordingly and create the sales order using VA01.
