The commitment process for configured items (and the component items that make up the configuration) is unique and specific to a Stocking Type 'C' item.  During the configurator supply chain process, commitments are designed to move between the sales and work orders for the component and the parent is hard committed only after the related work order is completed. However issues can occur as configuration changes will alter commitments and create duplicate component demand. To avoid this and to get a better understanding of how commitments are done for both the configured parent and the components, see document Commitment Processing for Configurator (Doc ID 2304887.1).
