As Per Note 2267140 “It is possible to switch on the extended material number functionality later in S/4 HANA System Conversion project”
So what’s the recommendation whether to activate material number functionality with 40 Charc. in the beginning of project or if do this later then what are the effort and additional activity required? Please share your experiences.

We discussed with our business group, and we decided with them not to activate it. Is there a business need to extend the material? If not, then I wouldn't recommend doing it.

Thanks for reply. That's true if there is no business need then no need to activate business function. But somehow suppose after S/4 HANA Conversion there is business requirement to adopt and increase material number length business function then what are the challenges occurred & will this required more effort for example again analyze complete data flow of internal/external interfaces, form, structures, domain etc and do the necessary changes.
