Material field in KMAT material type

Postby jens1101 » Wed Sep 09, 2009 11:31 pm

Dear expert,
We use KMAT material to do configuration business and we also need MRP to split planned order base on Maximum lotsize during MRP run.
When we go into MRP view of KMAT material we see it is no this field.
We want to know why in KMAT material no this field and can we acitve this field.
Also if couldnot how do we can do

SAP recommends (as do I, for what little that is worth) that the KMAT Material Type should no longer be used.

Just set the CONFIGURABLE indicator on the material in order to enable this functionally, but otherwise use your normal Material Types (FERT, HALB, etc.).

Funny thing about KMAT, all SAP documentation makes reference to using this, but you can never return a KMAT. SAP themselves really do not want you to use it, you just won't see that anywhere.

It's a classic mistake for someone who is really not experienced in VC to use the KMAT type.
Like the other poster said, go for FERT or HALB instead.

You're already live with it? woops. Better push for a future design and new material numbers.

Define Attributes of Material Types
set up quantity and value update as HALB OR FERT is ok. You also can select all necessary view that is missing.
