The planning method of the Characteristics Planning information structure S129 is consistent planning. However, the aggregation logic of this information structure is slightly different. The system copies key figure values from the characteristic value group level to the material level. It does not aggregate them. For example, if you plan to produce 10 yellow cars with a K65/5500 engine and 20 blue cars with a K55/5200 engine (the characteristic value level), the planned production quantity at the characteristic value group level (color + engine) is 30. This 30 is then copied to the material level (the car level).
