Process of Manufacturer
The Manufacturer part no F1 help calls for:
Identifies materials of this material type as manufacturer parts.
To allow you to distinguish between manufacturer part numbers in
Purchasing, you can create a material master record for each manufacturer
part number and assign it to your company's own material.
Only a restricted amount of material master data can be maintained
for manufacturer parts. Plant-specific data cannot be maintained in particular.
In real time application - How to do , is there any settings?
First Understand the Process of Manufacturer Part Profile :
Create External No ranges for Vendor Account Group MNFR and save.
Now Create Each Make / Manufacturer like ABB as one Vendor in XK01
Create Material Code original say XXXX in MM01 with ROH material type.
(for eg Transistor which is available with ABB & Siemens make)
Create material code for ABB make say 11 with Material type HERS which
contain only two views (Basic Data & Purchasing) and give Make, Original
material No & Material group and other details and save.
Create material code for Siemens make say 12 with Material type HERS
which contain only two views (Basic Data & Purchasing) and give Make,
Original material No & Material group and other details and save.
Create a Purchase order with original Material XXXX, then it will ask
for mnfg part profile then select the material and click F4 on it, it will
show you the created mfg part nos like ABB 11 & Siemens 12 and select
one and save.
Prerequisite is you have to Activate Mfg part profile in OMPN
And in Material master Purchasing View Select the mfg part profile
Even if you set the Mfg part number in Display mode in SPRO settings
system will throw the same error.
Now What can be done is :
Either go to ME21N and Select material tab after inputting and
press f4 and select Manufacturer part number options then system will shows
the list of mfg part number maintained to that material select the desired
Else go to MM02 Purchasing View and in Mfg part Profile tab
there must be a four character profile assigned to field Remove this and
The Second option is not a good practice.
Activate the MPN in OMT0.
In OMT3B, select 21 screen seq, and click on data screen, select
purchasing and click on subscreen, and replace the screen no 0001 with
2313, then you will get the same in purchasing view for all material types.
REAL TIME SCENERIO: When the parts are manufactured at a plant and
procured at that time, in case if any defective piece is there or any problem
arises, at that time, the vendor confirms the rejection for the Manufacture
part number, so it is entered in the MMR.
You can see the settings here also: SPRO --> MM --> Purchasing -->
MM --> Define manufg,. part profiles, this is used to define the profiles.
