This is a video tutorial on how to manage Material Master Data in context of SAP S/4HANA SD (Sales and Distribution). The speaker discusses the process in detail, providing step-by-step instructions. Here are some key points:
- Material Master Data: The video starts with an explanation of Material Master Data in SAP. The speaker emphasizes that a single material code is used by different departments such as sales, material management, production planning, warehouse management, financial and costing people. Each department maintains its own relevant data within the same material code.
- Creating a New Material: The speaker demonstrates how to create a new material in the system. This involves specifying the product code, industry sector, material type, and selecting the necessary screens for data maintenance. The speaker also highlights the importance of maintaining weight and volume data for the material.
- Sales Specific Data: The tutorial covers the maintenance of sales specific data, including sales organization data, distribution channel data, and sales plant data. The speaker explains how to set default delivering plant, material group, text classification, and other sales related data.
- Copying Material Data: The speaker shows how to create a new material by copying data from an existing material. This feature can save time when creating similar materials.
- Maintaining Different Units of Measure: The tutorial explains how to maintain different units of measure for a material. For example, the base unit of measure can be ‘each’, but sales unit can be ‘carton’ or ‘pallet’. This allows flexibility in sales transactions.
- Extending Material to Other Plants or Sales Organizations: The speaker demonstrates how to extend a material to other plants or sales organizations. This is useful when the same material is used across different locations or sales channels.
- Using SAP S/4HANA GUI and S/4 System: The tutorial provides a detailed walkthrough of creating and managing material master data using both the SAP S/4HANA GUI and the S/4 system. The speaker highlights the differences and similarities between the two systems.
- MRP Data: The speaker also touches on the importance of maintaining MRP (Material Requirements Planning) data, which is relevant to the MM (Material Management) module.
The video is a comprehensive guide on managing Material Master Data in SAP S/4HANA SD, covering everything from creating new materials to extending materials to different plants or sales organizations.
