hi

The industry sector groups companies according to activity such as plant engineering and construction,

mechanical engineering, the chemical industry, and the pharmaceutical industry.

Table-driven program support is provided according to industry sector such as selecting data fields,

the sequence of screens and allocating a material to a material type.

hope it clears

Hi,

When you create a material master record, the industry sector you specify determines

which screens appear and in what order

which industry-specific fields appear on the individual screens

Hi

The industry sector is used to activate / deactivate certain screens / fields specific for that particular industry. You can create your own industry sector or use one which satisfies your needs.

We can define industry sector in SPRO

Path

Spro >Logistics - General>Material Master--> Field Selection --> Define Industry Sectors and Industry-Sector-Specific Field Selection

Standard Settings

The standard SAP R/3 System comes, for example, with the following

industry sectors:

o A for plant engineering and construction

o C for the chemical industry

o M for mechanical engineering

o P for pharmaceuticals

You can change the name of the industry sector (plant engineering and

construction, and so on) and, if necessary, the field input control too

(via the field reference).
