    Hi Harshal,

    Device Category in IS-U corresponds to a Material in SAP MM module.

    So if you create a Device Category called ABC in IS-U it means creating a material in MM module.

    You can create Device Categories in IS-U using 'EG01' tcode.

    You have to do basic config settings for Device Category under the below IMG path-:

    SPRO -> SAP Utilities -> Device Management -> Technology -> Basic Settings

    SPRO -> SAP Utilities -> Device Management -> Technology -> Device Category

    Please let me know if you are getting any specific error messages while creating a new Device Category.

    Thanks,

    Mayuresh

    Hello Mayuresh,

    I had created a material with MM01 & entered the same in the following path as a reference material.

    Path: SPRO -> SAP Utilities -> Device Management -> Technology -> Device Category->Define help table for specification of material ref.

    now after this I can't create device category with this reference material. what are the necessities to create device category with a reference material?

    Thanks

      Hi Harshal,

      Have you created entries in:

      SPRO -> SAP Utilities -> Master Data -> Basic Settings -> Define structure Indicator and Category of Functional Locations?

      Please check or else let me know the error?

      Thanks,

      Mayuresh

    Hi Mayuresh,

    Device categories can be created in two ways:

    1. individual material master for each device category

    2. ref. material master for all device categories.

    I am trying to create it by 2nd option. By 1st option I can create it & all the customization required for it is already there. by 2nd option separate material master creation should not be required for each device category. As such there is no error.

    Thanks
