Alternative Product ID configuration.


Hi Gurus,

I am having difficulty understanding how to configure Alternative Product ID's in CRM. We have Material Determination already set up in ECC. We would like to have this in CRM as well. In ECC we are able to enter in a short code to identify a long SKU. I know the CRM configuration is at:

Cross Application Components > SAP Product > Alt Product ID's >

However, I need to know:

- How do I map/align the same determination/values in ECC Material Determination to CRM?

- ID Type: Do I need to create my own ID type, or can I use an existing one?

- How are ID Types / Sequence of ID / Profiles related?

- How to i assign this Alt ID to my materials?

- Do I need to create a new attribute/ set-type to accommodate this?

I would appreciate a step-by-step guide where possible or more detail on the procedure to set this up. Its a very poorly documented area in SAP CRM..
