KMAT Forecast/PIR consumption by Material Variants


Dear friends,

We produce Configurable materials (Make to Order)

And we produce the material variants (both Make to Order and Make to Stock)

Strategy Group used for KMATs is 56 (Characteristics planning). Material variants have combination of 40(MTS) and 56(for MTO)

We load the forecast for the Configurable products.

When the actual Sales order is placed for the Configurable products(KMAT), the forecast or PIR loaded for the KMAT gets consumed. And this is good.

For testing, we added the forecast/PIR for the Material variant separately, and the Sales orders created for the variants consume the PIR. but we do not wish to add up a separate forecast process for the variants, in addition to the forecasts for KMATs.

Can we have any options to meet the following requirement u2026? The Sales orders for the KMATs as well as their Material variants should reduce the PIR/forecast loaded for the KMAT.

Appreciating your suggestions in advance.
