    Hi

    Material determination is to determine another material in the place of a material i.e., swapping/replacing one material with another automatically.

    CMIR helps in determining the same material irrespective of the descriptions used by different customers for the same material. CMIR's use is much more than - customer's Description of the material...it also specifies customer's preferences specific to that material..like, Plant, Delivery tollerances etc.,

    Thanks,

    Ravi

    Hi dilip

    CMIR is something where you are clubbing both Customer and material ,that means say you have made a CMIR for customer 1000 with material MAT1 as ZCM1.So when you create a sales order with that customer 1000 then there is no need to enter the material , instead of entering the material you can enter the CMIR number ZCM1 ,so automatically system will pick the shipping conditions , and other priorities from that CMIR if they are maintained .if they are not maintained then it will pickup from CMR and then MMR .

    As far as Material determination is concerned it is a conditon technique where you are determining a material i.e., where you are substituting a material .Say for example For MAT1 material you want to substitute MAT2 material then you will be using Material determination

    So CMIR and Material determination both are different concepts

    Hi,

    These two are different ....

    CMIR :- Ex : if customer wants own discreption for particualr material then we need to maintain CMIR in VD51.

    MD : Material Determination is Swaping the material ie, if customer is placed for A material if A is not available system automatically detrmines B in the line item.

    provided you have maintain the condition records for the same in VB11.

    Regards

    Ramesh.

    Hi

    Material determination is entirely different

    For this material( not being available or may be any reason )the system offers another material

    The system substitutes original material with another material

    CMIR is a master record for that particular customer for that particular material these are the records or control data like description,Plant, delivery tolerences

    When the same combination of customer and material falls in the sales order if CMIR is maintained that takes priority over CMR,MMR

    Apart from descriptions CMIR has a lot of control functions

    Go to VD51 click on to the details and see

    Regards
