Advanced Variant Configurator
in SAP S/4HANA

When will you switch to the new Advanced Variant Configurator?

With the new Advanced Variant Configurator(AVC)  in SAP S/4HANA, SAP has launched the direct successor to the LO-VC (classic variant configurator). This is a new variant engine, which combines and integrates new technologies in the back end such as SAP HANA, an optimized and more flexible processing of the configuration and modern GUI technologies with SAP FIORI. This naturally raises questions: Can existing data models continue to be used? What preparation is necessary for switching to AVC? What are the benefits of switching to AVC? We are here to help you answer these questions.

Using the new inspector, for example, you quickly obtain information about the currently selected object in the configuration including attached object dependencies.
