Material Master

Hi

Freinds,

In general while making purchase requisition in SAP systems we took the items from material master record.But our users dont want to pull the items from Material master.Instead of that they want users should be able to enter the item details as per their wish while making PR.But Material master record will keep the entry once the item will be supplied and ispection has been done.How this can be done in SAP systems?

thanks

Hi Tilak ... You can satisfy the customer with the following work-around (though it is not recommended Still in case ... )

Create dummy item (/s) (you can create them item-group or item-type wise) ... and ask them to pull these materials while sending PRs ... they can modify the short text as per their wish and proceed.

Dear ,

You create NLAG sap codes once which have basic data , purchase and accouinting1 view.

like print_stat is material code having description printing and stationary.

then

Ucan create PR in EXP type using ACCT assignment category K & material grpin ME51N.The system will ask for G/L acct & cost center.then u can save.

same validation to be done through ABAPer.

Hi,

it is not possible per se.

The material master is used to codify the materials used by various departments in order to avoid reduntant data.. for example an A4 paper some might put in as A4 and others might be a4.

Standardization and codification is the exercise done to avoid these.

You need to tell the users the advantages of it.

There might be items that cannot be codified owing to the very nature of their procurement like one off purchas etc.

for regulat items, masterial master is the way.

Its not the question of of advantage or disadvantage.

Existing legacy is having this facility.So people dont want to wait when the administrator will create the record in material master and PR can be raised ....

Hi,

Legacies might offer such functionalities as they do not have the integration that SAP offers.

moreover all materials are created during cut-over.. post go-live if any new requirement comes in , the material creation process has to be in place.

These are issues of change management. handle it accordingly.
