Hi,

Spare parts (ERSA): - Spare parts are used to replace defective parts. They may be kept in stock. A material master record of this material type can contain purchasing data, but not sales data.

Operating supplies (HIBE): - Operating supplies are procured externally and required for the manufacture of other products. A material master record of this material type can contain purchasing data, but not sales data.

Services (DIEN): - Services can be performed internally or procured externally (outsourced). They cannot be stored or transported.

Example: - Construction work, Janitorial/cleaning services, Legal services

ZACTIVO - (This is not a material type since material type can be of only 4 character)

ZROH - This is copy of ROH

Raw materials (ROH): - Raw materials are always procured externally and then processed. A material master record of this type contains purchasing data, but not sales data since they cannot be sold.
