Copying all materials from existing plant to new plant

Hi Experts,

I have a requirement to create a new plant which is a copy of existing plant. In this process all the materail master, vendor schedule lines, info recors, purchse order, source list, sales orders, contracts data needs to be copied to the new plant.

I am working in SAP 3.1 version. This data updation is one time activity.

In order to update this master data & transaction data do we need to write a new BDC programs? we don't have LSMW in SAP 3.1 version. Is there a standard way of doing data updation using sap provided transactions to the new plant? I gone through couple of threads and they are suggesting CAT tool(Tcode SCAT) to update this data. Can we use CAT tool in Production system?

If i think about writing BDC program, its a lengthy process to implement.

Please help me <removed by moderator> with your suggestions to go about this. Appreciate your <removed by moderator> response.

Thanks in advance,

    LSMW was not in the standard delivery package of 3.1, but can be downloaded for free from SAP.

    Do you have already the BAPI BAPI_MATERIAL_SAVEDATA in your system.

    This would be the quickest and easiest solution.

    A small ABAP that loops thru your materials and calls the BAPI to extend the materials to the new plant
