Variant Configurat Solution for Make to Order Business and Characteristic Based Planning
Variant Configuration (VC) has been one of the more popular (and more difficult) areas of SAP for quite some time. Many manufacturing companies running on SAP want to get up to speed with "make-to-order" options for their customers, and the potential to configure products online using SAP's Internet Pricing and Configuration (IPC) tool just makes the need to conquer make-to-order manufacturing more intense.

Using an illustrated example of vehicle manufacturing, we will walk through the two main modeling techniques: rules and constraint-based modeling.
