Hi,

I am working with SAP since last 4 years & continuing with the same profession with supply chain

Up to my knowledge, SAP certification is necessary to become professional worker with SAP

I am confused about it whether my work profile in SAP falls in Product Planning OR Material Management.

Can any one guide me in that case??

Thank You,

Chirag Patil

You have said you are working since last 4 years in SAP.

May I know in which module you have worked?

You are confused about PP and MM

I suggest first go for MM..

PP and MM is Integrated itself.

If you have the strong knowledge of MM, then you can learn easily PP.
