Transfer of Requirements for Locked Configurations
In the standard system, no requirements are transferred for sales order items with a locked or incomplete configuration status.
If the header material has a locked or incomplete configuration status, components that would normally transfer requirements lose their relevance to requirements transfer.
No planned order is generated in material requirements planning (MRP) for the order item.
System Status Configuration Incomplete
If the configuration of a sales document item is incomplete, the item has system status KONU (configuration incomplete).
Business Transaction Requirements Transfer with Incomplete Configuration
Business transaction Incomplete req. configuration controls transfer of requirements. In the standard system, no system status allows this business transaction. This means that requirements for the main order item and its components lose their relevance to MRP.
In Customizing for Sales and Distribution, you can define a user status that allows this business transaction. This status can be set manually or by setting it as the initial status in the status profile. You can use it to ensure that requirements are transferred for order items, even if they have locked or incomplete configuration status.
In Customizing for Sales and Distribution, you can define a user status and assign it to a status profile, by choosing Sales ® Sales Documents ® Define and assign status profile. You can define a user status so that it allows business transaction Incomplete req. configuration. You can define this as the initial status, so that it is always set for the status profile.
You assign the status profile to an item category.
You can use a user status to prevent further changes to the configuration data of an order item. Business transaction Change configuration data is defined for this purpose. You can use a user status to allow or disallow this transaction.
The configuration status of a configurable material is defined in the configuration editor by choosing Extras ® Change status. Status Incomplete is set automatically if any required characteristics do not have assigned values.
In the sales document, the system sets system status KONU for the order item that has an incomplete or locked configuration.

- If the status profile has a user profile that allows the transaction, and this status is set, the transaction is allowed.
