Multi-level Configurable Materials


My client use VC for finished and semi-finised products.Semi-finished products are procured outside.

I have a question about multi-level configuration.We can configure different level of the configurable materials.Z_W_103 is a semi-finished product and will be procured outside.

While in purchase order,I am not able to see the second level characteristic.How to see it?Or I won't know whether it is correct or not..

    Hello Monst,

    Generally , to have it own characteristics you need to have a configurable component. otherwise it takes the configuration from the header material. In your case this is what happening, Purchase order is taking configuration from the header material. I believe you are creating a PO from sales order so the configuration should have been created from the sales order. Did you configure Component .Z_W_103 separetly. As to have its own configuration, Sales order should have its own configuration for the component. So please ensure you setup the configuration data in the sale order for the component or are you not able to configure the component in the sales order ?

      Hi Monst,

      To setup a variant you will need to use MM02 material master transactions. but after this switch you can configure the variant. which means that the bom will be exploded and you can then configure both the header and component.

    Hi Monst Yang,

    whats the 3 rd screen shot you attached in your thread, isnt it the screen from purchase order with values?

    please find some time to provide more details of configuration setup at your end as well as your expectations out of it.
