Each view can be maintained by different people, hence it does not really make sense to make the storage location field mandatory at the org selection pop-up

further, you can maintain as well material types like NLAG through MM01, but NLAG does not have storage location views, so making the field mandatory would not allow you to maintain NLAGs.

And if you do not enter an organisation such as plant or storage location, then you can still access certain views, you just will see and can maintain all the fields that are not organisation specific but located in org specific views.

Try it, you can access purchasing and purchasing text view without plant.

you can maintain storage location view without giving storage location.

If you really want restrict, then you have to make use of a userexit, or transaction variant.

Normally mandatory organizations are due to the field you select. to see basic data-1 and 2 you do not have to give any plant or storage location.So your assumption is not correct. When you want to display/mantain plant level data system will ask for plant.

So if you want to maintain stroage location level data (data in MARD table) then storage location is mandatory. Hope you are clear now
