How to convert two mateiral requirements for sap

Hi

We plan to setup two matierals like xxxx-xxxx and xxxx-xxxx1 for one kind of part. but they are purchased by different currency , like xxxx-xxxx is for cny purchase, xxxx-xxxx1 is for usd purchase.

But if that, How sap could run correct mrp requirments ? COuld it use alternative matieral? but it need usage of this two mateiral ,right?

When we build product, one matieral only could have one BOM ,right? we can't setup two bom with two mateirals number?

Thanks

ALice

    Hi Alice,

    As per my understanding you are speaking about the same part (?) and you only want to make difference between different procurement methodes of it.

    If the parts are physacally the same I think you shouldn't use different part numbers. In this case maybe you should consider the use of one part number with split valuation.

    Hi

    Thanks a lot, yes, it's same part physically, but according to different puchase currency, we need place it into different physical place

    do you mean we could use differnt valuation to assign to one material ? but since it's one material number , when we do backflush or production order, how could we know which kind of part (CNY purchase or usd puchase) we consume?

    Thanks

    • Hi,

      SAP will know automatically which batch will be consumed.

      If you want to check the valuation class of your batches you can do it in MSC3N or you can check them in MB5L in mass (there's one-one connection between valuation class and G/L account).

      Or you can use different number ranges (external) for the goods of different origins (e.g. CNY08/0001 and USD08/0001).

      I have no better idea at thye moment...

    Hi

    Thanks a lot .Does that mean if we use valuation , we need use batch management for mateiral ?

    do we need manually choose the the valuation when we do receipt or move matieral?

    then we could know which mateiral is for CNY part or USD purchased part?

    By the way, If we use two part number for one physcial part, Could we setup the same part bom for parent part, eg one sub-item use cny part, another sub-item use USD part,SInce In stock ,it will be two part stock qty, We are afraid mrp can't run out correct requiremetns?

    Thanks

    • Hi Alice,

      Batch management is not a must for split valuation, you can solve it without BM as well of course.

      I have no experience of this, but in Customizing, through 'Stock Determination' (SPRO > MM > IM and PI > Stock Determination), you can set it which valuation class to use for which movement type (hopefully).

      Through the valuation type you can decide which stock belongs to which category. The mentioned MB5L transaction is good for this purpose if you want to get a report. When you book material movements you can always choose which kind of stock (of which valuation type) you want to move.

      As for using two different material number in SAP for the same physical part maybe you could use 'alternative item' scenario...(???)
