Hi Friends,

How can we maintain Material groups and subgroups, like Iron and steel (material Group)> hr sheet (Sub Group)> cr sheet

(subgroup) -->h.r. sheet 4mm(material).? Please explain me this scenario step by step. I am appying it only for raw material not

for sales material.

Thanks in advance.

Material Group could be created ( by MM person )

In SPRO ; Logistics - General--->Material Master

>Settings for Key Fields----->Define Material Groups

Assign this in Basic data 1 view of material master

Ex :

1A0300 steel

120100 plastic

1A0600 plate 4mm - 10mm

110001 steel plate 20mm- 100mm

Material groups can be grouped into hierarchies. Every material group can be assigned to one material group hierarchy level.

You can create as many hierarchy levels as you wish. The lowest material group hierarchy level in a material group hierarchy is always the material group to which the materials are directly assigned.


Material group hierarchy level 3: Non-food

Material group hierarchy level 2: Household goods

Material group hierarchy level 1: Small electrical appliances

Material group hierarchy level 0: Kitchen gadgets
