Hi,

Usually KMAT material type is used to create configurable materials. But it is not mandatory to use the KMAT material type. A custom material type can be used for configurable materials. In this scenario make sure "Material is configurable" is checked on Basic data screen.

The KMAT material type will be used for variant configuration scenario.

Please check the forum for variant configuration steps.

Dear Vijay,

KMAT materials are used where Variant configuration is going to be used from the PP Module.

This material type is used for representing the different variants say for example: A Car in an automobile industry or a computer.

For this material type the default setting for material is configurable will be set when creating the material in the Basic Data 2 view.

However any customzied material type with this indicator set can be used as a configurable material and where the item category

group will be set as 0002 in the Basic 1 view of the material master.
