Configurable routing

Post by michalis12 » Wed Dec 12, 2012 11:20 am

Hi everyone, I need your help in the following make-to-order scenario.

I have a sales order for configurable material 01-XXX-01. The BOM for 01-XXX-01 has several components

These components are selected depending on the classification values of the sales order item. For one order I might have just 1 component, for another 2-3 or 4 components.
I also have a routing (ROUTING) that is also configurable. Operations are selected based on the characteristics of the order. Everything so far works just fine. My problem is with the following scenario:

So far operations in the routings were selected from the values assigned to the highest level of the configurable material. I want to to select operations based on characteristic values assigned to a lower level in my configuration. In other words I want to select an operation based on characteristic values assigned to 01-YYY-001, 002, 003 instead of 01-XXX-01

I have created the selection condition and I have assigned to the operation but it doesn't work
specified $self.CHAR1

Is my syntax wrong? How do I specify that the operation needs to look at the characteristic values of the "child" and not the "parent"?

Thanks in advance

If the routing is being exploded for the parent, and the information does not exist at that level, you can't.
Good luck!
