MSDS Distribution without WWI and Property Tree

Hi,

I have a question regarding MSDS distribution.

We have a client scenario wherein client has a legacy system generating MSDS. They want to use SAP to only import the MSDS and ship it to the correct customer. I have been following a lot of links to learn and understand better.

Since the client is happy with their existing system, they do not want to go for a full blown Specification Database in SAP for MSDS Shipping. I have the following questions (some of them basic) in this regard.

1. Can we use CG36 for importing the MSDS into SAP?

2. What are the system requirements for this - like do we need WWI, Spec database, DMS etc?

3. What would be the master data requirements or in general any data requirements?

4. Configuration to be done?

5. Any customization required? since client is looking at this mostly as an MSDS interface..

6. Where will the file get uploaded? What will be the subsequent steps in the process?

I would much appreciate your inputs on this. I had read a similar scenario called MSDS distribution without WWI or EH&S Property tree in another website. Only in this case, they used the CG36VEN Tcode since MSDS was from Subcontractor. In my case, the MSDS is a legacy generated ready to use file, which just has to be shipped through SAP.

Please help!

Thank you,

Sruthi

    Dear SRuthi

    please refer to answers in your othere threads. Shortly:

    1. Can we use CG36 for importing the MSDS into SAP? => yes

    2. What are the system requirements for this - like do we need WWI, Spec database, DMS etc?

    => you need a specification, you need to set up WWI (later for distrbutiong MSDS), you need to set up DMS etc. etc.

    3. What would be the master data requirements or in general any data requirements?

    => at least you need a specification and if you think about automaitc distrbution: you need material assignment to specification, some identifer might be helpful, a lot of customizing etc. is required

    4. Configuration to be done?

    => a lot: Out of scope of a thread like this (take 6 monaths of set up check etc.)

    5. Any customization required? since client is looking at this mostly as an MSDS interface..

    => yes: Customizing required (a lot)

    6. Where will the file get uploaded? What will be the subsequent steps in the process?

    Just use CG35; you need to prepare s "distrbution" scenario. In most cases this satrts in SAP SD. Is customer using this?

    Shortly: to deal with yoru demand a project of at least 6 months might be needed. Sorry.

    C.B.
