Hello Chick,
You are correct on your assumptions. The template term is a bit fuzzy in BPCS. 
What you are describing is the Configuration Code option off of the Item master 
(Supply) maintenance screen. For each item you wish to reuse, you must go to 
INV100/F17/F21, Identify the configurable item (template) it is associated with 
and proceed to describe each choice or value required for a match. 
The next time you attempt a new configuration for the configurable item (the 
template ) it will compare the list of selected options and values to the set 
of options and values for the existing item. If there is no match - it is 
unique and a new item is generated. If there is a match - the configuration is 
abandoned and the existing item appears on that order line (similar to a 
substitution).
 
If you still have access to the original Configurator Training documentation, 
this should be back around page 60 or 61. If not, contact me off line and I can 
step you thru it. 
 
Regards,
Larry Costain

Subject: Re: [BPCS-L] configuration template


we're talking about the configurator not the general ledger. there is an
option in the configurator that seems to tie configuration strings to a
template. we're believe this give you to option to enter a configuration
string and if what you enter matches a 'template' then you can use a
predefined part number rather than generating a new order specific
configured part number. this all happens around the CFG572 screen, but
we're not sure exactly what is supposed to happen and how to use th
template.

It would depend if you are talking about configuring the postings into
the 
ledger and have established some templates to copy for different
reasons such as 
item classes cross referenced to different accounts or configuration 
management which is something entirely different.  The latter would be
something like 
setting up making pizzas and you can have different ingredients and
maybe cook 
in a smaller oven if it is a small pizza or perhaps cook longer if it
is a 
deep dish, etc.  

Determining what the definition of "configuration template" would be
trying 
to understand the context of what prompted you to ask the question in
the first 
place.

Good luck.
