SAP Material variants
Create material variants in SAP automatically - in background, fully automated with our CaRD material variant creation Add-on.
Configurable materials which have been defined with their characteristic attributes cannot be managed in the system as simple stock materials. Instead, they have to be created specifically in that form in the material master. Moreover, you need to carry out a number of additional activities in order to be able to work with a stock material in the usual way, for example creating references to bills of material and routings, price conditions etc.
Generating a stock material from a sales order item with a configurable material when this item is created, allowing quantity-based management of that material as stock material. The current configuration should be copied from the sales order into the stock material. In addition, the solution should allow configuration via an ABAP program without reference to a sales order.
Generation of Material Variants for Configurable Products
The solution enables you to generate stock materials either when creating a sales order or by running a specific on-line transaction. It is therefore possible to carry out all steps required to create a stock material in one single transaction. The creation of stock materials can be based either on a sales order or on an existing configurable material.The entire modification was created as a User Exit and therefore lies within the customer name space. It is completely separate from SAP objects and requires no post-processing after hot-package updates or other transports by SAP. All objects and structures required for the modification are within the customer name space.
