How to make warehouse management views mandatory for MM01/02

Hi all,

     At our client site we have one of the plant where warehouse module has been implemented on pilot project basis. Our client has around 45-50 different plants for which their is central team to create material code. Now as warehouse view is not used for other plants so the user tends to forget to extend ware house views for material related to ware house managed plant.

So we want to make it mandatory for the user to select the warehouse view while creating material through MM01 for that specific material only.

Any suggestion.

    there is in general no provision to make views mandatory, as the views represent departments and in a distributed environment each department maintains their own views, so it would make less sense to make a view mandatory as nobody could proceed without having this view in place.

    Of course you can tricks the system, you can make remove a central field from a field selection group, put it into an own group, make it mandatory and place this group onto the WM view only.

    But this does not make much sense, since you said that you have about 50 plants and only a single plant has a warehouse.

    Even there is no direct relation between a plant and a warehouse in the material master itself.

    If you look at MLGN table, the only commonality is the material number, there is no plant number in the table. This is because a single WM can be shared between several plants and storage locations. All is based on a customizing table T320 .

    What you could do in your special case with your central maintenance group is to evaluate the completeness in a user exit under consideration of T320 table and send a warning or error message while saving.
