Master Data (Material Master) - SAP Implementation


The processes of materials management are based on various types of basic data. This data can be maintained for materials, vendors etc. This basic data is stored in master records in the system. When processing business events and transactions, the system accesses master records and the data stored in them.

For Materials Management (MM), the master data used is:

·         MaterialMaster
·         VendorMaster


Material Master


The purpose is to document how material master data will be created through SAP System. The material master data will be required for all activities related to inventory storage, accounting, production, sales and purchasing.

The material master contains information on all the materials that a company procures, stores, and sells. It is the company's central source for retrieving material-specific data. This information is stored in individual material master records.

The material master is used by all components in the SAP Logistics System. The integration of all material data in a single database object eliminates redundant data storage. The material master data is used in:

·         Purchasing
·         Inventory Management
·         Invoice Verification
·         Production Planning
·         Sales and Distribution
·         Quality Management
·         Finance
·         Controlling
