Dear SAP Friends,

Welcome to another interesting topic New View in Material Master

In the latest release of SAP S/4 HANA 1909, a new view has been introduced in Material master that is “EXTENDED SPP” as all know with 1709 version Advanced Planning has introduced as part of PP/DS now its Extended SPP

Will try to understand what exactly it’s use

To begin, SPP stands for Service Parts Planning

SPP is the planning module of the SAP SPM (Service Parts Management) solution and is integrated within the Supply Chain Management (SCM) suite. This module was designed to meet specific requirements for the service parts businesses, which are very revenue-critical in industries such as automobiles and manufacturing.

SPP usually deals with the following broad areas related to service parts for client, customer or supplier locations:

  1. Supply Chain Design

  2. Demand Planning

  3. Inventory Planning

  4. Distribution Planning

For More details on SPP refer




In Product Alerts, we can see 3 Types of Alerts as Alert Monitoring is the functionality of PP/DS

Alert Relevance of Product


In this field, you specify whether:

  • The system determines direct alerts for a requirement or a receipt of a product

  • The product is relevant to network alerts

If a product is relevant to network alerts, the system evaluates the direct alerts that it determines for this product for receipts or requirements at the superordinate levels of the pegging structure as well.

You can hide alerts for less critical components and thus:

    • Increase the clarity and transparency of the network alerts

    • Improve performance

If you choose the option Do Not Determine Any Alerts, the system will not determine any direct alerts for the product. The product is thus also not relevant about network alerts.


You specify whether and which alerts are displayed by the system in the planning interface or in the Alert Monitor in the PP/DS alert profile that you use for planning.



Please share, Like and Comment anything else you want to share or add points.

Thanks & Regards
