Alternative Item in Variant Configuration

Hello Everyone,

There's a configurable material A-100 (KMAT) including three components which are the same species.

A-100 B-100 (Dependency: D-1)

B-200 (Dependency: D-2)

B-300 (Dependency: D-3)

When I choose the characterastic in sales order,system choose the corresponding component for the BOM.

But the scenario is that when the component I choosed (example.B-100) is non-stock,the system will change the component to another one (example .B-200,B-300).

To bring out this scenario,I set the 'altItemGroup' as follows:

AltItemGroup Priority Strategy Usage prob.

A-100 B-100 1 1 2 100

B-200 1 2 2 0

B-300 1 3 2 0

The question is that the component can't be changed to another in planned order or production order after the ATP checking.

My question is if the altnative item doesn't work in the variant configuration,or I just forget to set some indicator.

Any answers are welcome!
