Explanation For Creating Material Master Record

What is MMR (Material Master Record)?

MMR is a data record containing all the basic information required to manage a material.

It's a master record maintained in the system that contains all the specific data relevant to a material.

Number Assignment:

MMR can have either internal or external number range assigned as per the configuration done at the time of implementation.

Materials which have similar characteristics are grouped under the same material type.

Material type controls
