Material code for same generic materials

Hi all,

I need a suggestion for my requirement as

We are looking for is a solution to support purchase of different brands for a same material number. Usage of all the possible brands gives the same end product. We do not want to produce variants of our products.

Our problem is that different manufacturers produce equivalent ROH materials that are interchangeable, and we want to buy the different alternatives for the same material number that is used in the BOM. The different alternatives need to be maintained separately in stock to allow traceability of their usage in our end products.

Opening of separate material codes for same generic material such as PC (ROH) raw materials from different vendors or brands is not suggestable

Please give your valuable feedback on this matter & support

Regards

Rakesh

    Hi,

    Do you want the materials to be stored in inventory with different brand names or else you need information only while raising Purchase Order. If you want to use Brand name during PO creation then you can use the concept of MPN in SAP.
