SAP MM (Material Management) is a module for SAP ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning). SAP Material Management is an integral part of the logistics function that assists in the handling of an organization’s procurement activities.
The SAP Material Management can decide on every site’s volume of material to be shipped in the distribution network, establish material recycling strategies, agree on the volume of orders for each product group (raw material, finished goods), and transmit information on the material requirements within the expanded distribution.
The SAP MM module is part of SAP Logistics and its function covers various areas of the transportation of materials from the supplier to the customer.
The procurement, packaging, transportation, and distribution of products in the supply chain require logistics. Materials Management includes several aspects of SAP features, including ordering, product selection, material processing, inventory, and billing. Materials Management’s key goal is to ensure that the supply chain is stable, that the inventory is sufficiently large, and that the outcomes are consistent.
The SAP Fiori applications suite for MM provides you with a well-rounded and coherent user experience across different devices, valuable production insights, and decision-making ability on-the-go. It aligns perfectly with SAP’s current user experience strategy.
