By defining product attributes, you can take into account customer preferences for product substitution.You can store information for up to ten product attributes in both the material master record and the customer master record of the ship-to party:

1. In the material master, you can assign product attributes to the material, to indicate whether a product is available with different kinds of packaging, for example.

2. In the customer master of the ship-to party, you can indicate whether a customer rejects materials with certain product attributes. In product selection, the system ignores any material with a product attribute that the customer has explicitly rejected.

Evaluate your business to determine if there are situations where certain customers refuse products with special attributes.

For example, some customers do not accept products produced abroad, while other customers do not want any product that contains a coupon.

If special circumstances exist where certain customers do not accept products with specific attributes, you can define up to 10 product attributes that the system checks during the product selection process.

Define product attributes in the material master

To assign product attributes to a material, choose Materials management --> Material master. Enter a material, choose Org. levels and select the Sales: Sales org. data 2 view. Mark the attributes that apply.

Define product attributes in the customer master

Select Sales and distribution --> Master data -->Business partners --> Ship-to party (if different from the sold-to party). Enter a customer and choose the Sales view in the sales area data. Choose Environment --> Product attributes. Mark the product attributes that the customer is not willing to accept.
