SAP MM(Materials Management) is a module of the SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) package that is used for Procurement Handling and Inventory Management.
The module has two important master data - material and vendor. Broadly, the various levels that can be defined for a SAP MM implementation are: Client, Company Code, Plant, Storage Location and Purchase Organization.
This is the largest and most complex in all of SAP modules. It can be divided into five major components. There are: materials management, plant maintenance, quality management, production planning and control, and a project management system. Each is divided into number of subcomponents.
SAP Materials management covers all tasks within the supply chain, including consumption-based planning, planning, vendor evaluation and invoice verification. It also includes inventory and warehouse management to manage stock until usage dictates the cycle should begin again.
SAP Plant Maintenance supports the activities associated with planning and performance repairs and preventative maintenance. Completion and cost reports are available. Maintenance activities can be managed and measured.
The SAP Quality Management capability plans and implements procedures for inspection and quality assurance. It is built on the ISO 9001 standard for quality management. It is integrated with the procurement and the productions processes so that user can identify inspection points both for incoming materials and for products during the manufacturing process.
SAP Production Planning and Control supports both discrete and process manufacturing processes. Repetitive and configure-to-order approaches are provided. This set of modules supports all phases of manufacturing, providing capacity leveling and requirements planning, material requirements planning, product costing, bills of material explosions and implosions, CAD dialog interface, and engineering change management. The system allows users to link re-work orders to production schedules.
The SAP Project Management System provides the users the capability to setup, manage, and evaluate large complex projects. While the financial costing projects system focuses on costs, the manufacturing project system is used for planning and monitoring dates and resources.Exibit A. Course Catalog
