    Hi ,

    NLAG (non-stock material)

    Non-stock material is material that is not held in stock because it is consumed immediately.

    (Office supplies such as stationary. You need to create purchase order and accounting document for payment but the stock balance is always zero as it is issued out immediately to the various department.)

    Are you looking for any different answer ?

    Office Supplies and Computer spares are examples for NLAG Materials

    Consumable Material - Overview

    In SAP R/3 the term u201Cconsumable materialu201D is understood to cover a material that is subject to a procurement transaction and whose value is recorded in the cost element or asset accounts. Consumable material is thus procured directly for an account assignment object. Examples of consumable materials are office supplies and computer systems or machines.

    When procuring a consumable material without a material master record, you must manually enter in the document a short description, a material group, and a purchase order unit because this data cannot be pulled from a master record.

    Since the material type determines whether or not a material is subject to value-based inventory management, the standard SAP R/3 system supplied includes the following material types for consumable materials:

    Non-valuated material (material type UNBW):

    This type of material is managed on a quantity basis, but not on a value basis. This makes sense for materials of low value, stocks of which nevertheless have to be monitored (for example, operating manuals).

    Non-stock material (material type NLAG):

    Inventory management is not possible for these materials either on a quantity or value basis. For frequently required consumables, the use of this material type nevertheless enables you to store the information required to create purchasing documents (such as texts and units of measure).
