Overview Of SAP MM Implementation Project

In every implementation project, there will be groups of SAP team members in each area where you have a project manager with all the team leads (or at least an experience consultant) with proper project plan.
 
Regarding configuration, no books will be needed (I hope all agree, what we studied in college, we just do 1-2% of that with real business task) and can be done as per business scenarios.

1st step:

You can start with designing the SAP MM organization structure by having purchasing organization, plants and storage locations and all assignment with plants assigned to company code.
 
2nd step:

This where you will be designing master data like designing material master, designing vendor master and designing service master. For designing material master, you have new own customized material types, material numbering, material group, account category reference and purchasing group with logic behind material numbering.  

For designing vendor master, you have new own customized vendor account group, with logic behind material numbering.
 
3rd step:

You will be designing purchasing document types (PR, RFQ and PO) and its number ranges.

4th step:

You will be designing MM pricing procedure where new customize new condition types may be needed. If CIN involved,
 
5th step:

You can start with designing tax procedure with designing new condition types for non-deductable and deductable taxes with excise setting for plant and company code. If purchasing process needed approval, then
 
6th step:

You can get started with designing release strategy with creating release class and release characteristics.

7th step:

Here you can get started with inventory management control where goods receipt, goods issue and stock transfer process, if require, you may go for new movement type creation.

8th step:

This will be the details configuration for logistic invoice verification with again where you can set your tolerance limit.

9th step:

What will be left behind is the MM-FI automatic account determination, generally done in OBYC t.code before activating valuation area in OX14 and activating valuation grouping code in OMWM with assigning valuation area to valuation grouping code in OMWD t.code.  Also if tax involved all tax G/L account need to be assigned in OB40 t.code.
 
The above can be designed and kept ready before starting material management configuration in the system and later as and when required you add new configuration as business needed and its true business differs from company to company.
