BOM Structure and Variant Configuration


An item is an option of a product which is assembled based on customer order. Demand planning is done at that item level. This item is also used as a BOM component of another product which is make to stock.

Is this possible?

How to do it?

Over at my side, they have set both the final product and all the option items (phantom items) as configurable materials. The item material is set so that configuration profile and planning profile are assigned to it.

However, when the other product (make to stock) also uses the same item as the make to order product, it is resulting in error when saving the production order of the make to stock product.

Error "There are still component characters. to evaluate".
