Road map to learn SAP MM: part 4

In my previous post I had mentioned about integration angle on SAP projects. Each module team (SAP MM, SAP FI-CO, SAP SD etc.) works and completes its configuration. At the same time, these modules are integrated with each other. Most of functionality of SAP MM can not run without proper configuration is not complete in other modules.

The basic organization structure is configured in SAP FI-CO module where client, company codes and Ledger accounts are created. These master configurations are used in SAP MM. If they are not configured then SAP MM features will not work. In SAP MM there are always 2 documents created for each SAP MM specific transaction. One is called material document and the other is called financial document (only in cases when there is no change in financial accounts after any transaction, the financial document is not created). Due to any transaction in SAP MM (stock movement, invoice verification, goods receipt, goods issue etc.) there will be an entry in financial accounts (posting to financial accounts). Without proper integration of material movements with financial accounts, these transactions can never be complete or wrong entries may be made in financial accounts.

Similarly, you need to keep relationship between sending and receiving plants for goods movement if your company has many storage locations situated with many plants and there is movement of goods among them. In this case, the sending party is treated as seller and the receiving party is treated as buyer in the system. In such cases, you need to configure each plant which sends goods as sellers in SAP Sales & Distribution (SAP SD) module. If this configuration is not done then SAP MM transactions related to movement of goods between plants can not be performed.

When production or manufacturing of goods is also done by your client (for whom you are implementing SAP) then SAP production planning module (SAP PP) is also implemented. Integration between SAP MM and SAP PP is also extensive in these cases. All goods issued to production department and goods received after production to storage have to be captured in the system.

You can observe that integration of modules in SAP system is extensive. The SAP MM consultant should know the integration points with other SAP modules.
