    Hi Kumar,

    These are called RFC.In simple way we can call them from non sap also and with in sap also ex bapi,idoc etc.In case of mm you can create material all views and changes also you can do.You can create po,pr etc.IDoc (for intermediate document) is a standard data structure for electronic data interchange (EDI) between application programs written for the popular SAP business system or between an SAP application and an external program.Not on;y in mm module we can use it other module also.

    In simple terms, ALE/IDOC are the tools to connect to external system.

    If all the plants are not in SAP, the the plant in SAP while running MRP sends a message about the requirements to the non-sap.

    This idoc contains the fileds required like current stock, re-ordering point, etc. Once it send to non-sap system, it receives back the required information.

    This to and fro information flow id processed through ALE/IDOCS.
