    hi,

     

    pl check this ;

     

    Dependencies let you do the following:

     

    Describe the interdependencies between characteristics and characteristic values

    Control which components are selected from a bill of material (BOM) and which operations are selected from a task list

    Change the values of fields in BOM items and operations during configuration

    You use a special syntax in the dependency editor to define dependencies.

     

    Dependency Types

     

    The SAP System supports the following types of dependencies:

     

    Preconditions

    Selection conditions

    Actions (obsolete)

    Procedures

    Constraints

    Global and Local Dependencies

     

    The differences between global and local dependencies are as follows:

     

    Global dependencies are created centrally and can be assigned to several objects.

    Local dependencies are created for one object and can only be used with this object.

    Integration

     

    You can use dependencies in the following components:

     

    Component CA – Classification System

    Component LO – Variant Confi

     

    source : sap library.

     

    thanks

      Gurus,

      I need an example of a dependency net which includes Preconditions

      Selection conditions, Actions ,Procedures and Constraints(either all f them or some of them).

       

      Thanks

        Dear Andy,

         

        http://www.sap-basis-abap.com/sd/steps-for-variant-configuration-and-pricing.htm

        1.Create a Material of your Motor Cycle using Material type KMAT(MM01).

        2.Then create a characteristic called ZColour(SAP has a standard Characteristic for this but it has multiple values-i.e you can select more than one colour for your Bike.If you do not want that create your own)with character format  and assign single value radio button on the initial screen.Go to values Tab and give the colours you need.save the characteristic.Similarly repeat for CC(I figure this CC as 100cc & 200cc kind of thing.If you want these as materials then it is a different story-I am taking this as feature as well)

        3.Create a class called Zbike with the above 2 characteristics.save the class

        4.Create a configuration profile Zbikeprof using Cu41 and assign the Kmat material to Class Zbike,

        5.Then create the order and Enter the Kmat material you want in the Order.

         

         

        http://www.sap-img.com/sap-sd/steps-for-sd-variant-configuration.htm

        Create a Material - KMAT type with Item category (002)

        Create Charateristics in CT04 - Zbike, where in values mention the Color of the bile like Red, Blue etc

        Create another characteristics in CT04 - ZPrice, where directly go the additional data tab and maintain the table SDCOM and field VKOND (ABAP Dictionary it will ask for)

        Assign these two characteristics to a Class in CL01 - ZBikeclass ( Type 300) in characteristics tab page.

        Then go to CU41 Configuration profile select the material and enter the description click on the class assignment ie assign Zbikclass.

        Now go back to CT04 - enter Zbike -go to values- select Red- go to extras - Other Dependencies - Select Procedure enter in front 10 write - $self.ZPrice='Red' and save

        Now go back go to extras - Other Dependencies - assignments and assign relationship ( by default it will come just save)

        Now select Blue- go to extras - Other Dependencies - Editor - Select Procedure enter in front of 10 write - $self.ZPrice='Blue' and save

        Now go back go to extras - Other Dependencies - assignments and assign relationship ( by default it will come just save)

        Now go to VK11 - Enter VA00 (Condition)(For Std RVA001 Pricing Procedure) - enter variant Red and Blue give the rates accordingly and create the sales order.

        The variant configuration standard analysis is based on data that is updated to the information structure S128.

         

        Characteristics

         

        Class type

        Material

        Int. characteristic

        Characteristic value

        Sales organization

        Distribution channel

        Division

        Sold-to party

        Plant

        Key Figures

         

        Delivery quantity in base unit of measure

        Incoming orders (net 1, net 2)

        Incoming orders: freight

        Incoming orders: gross

        Incoming orders: net value

        Incoming orders: pricing subtotal 5 and 6

        Net value of invoiced sales

        Open order quantity based on confirmation date of schedule line

        Open order quantity based on requested delivery date of schedule line

        Open order value based on confirmation date of schedule line

        Open order value based on requested delivery date of schedule line

        Total order quantity based on confirmation date of schedule line

        Delivery frequency in base unit of measure

        Open incoming orders frequency based on requested delivery date of schedule line

        Open incoming orders frequency based on confirmation date of schedule line

        Incoming orders frequency based on confirmation date of schedule line

        Incoming orders frequency based on requested delivery date of schedule line

        Incoming order quantity based on requested delivery date of schedule line

         

        Hope this will help.

        Regards,

        Naveen.
