SAP | SAP MM | ERP| Material Management
SAP Material Management (MM) is a module of the SAP ERP system that is used to manage procurement and inventory activities within a company. It is designed to support a company’s procurement and inventory needs, including material master data management, purchasing, and inventory management.
MM is used to manage the entire procurement process, from the creation of a purchase requisition to the final goods receipt. It includes functions for creating and managing purchase orders, supplier evaluation and invoice verification. In addition, MM provides inventory management capabilities, including the ability to track stock levels, generate reorder points, and perform physical inventory counts.
MM is integrated with other SAP modules such as Financial Accounting (FI), Sales and Distribution (SD), and Production Planning (PP) to provide a complete end-to-end solution for material and inventory management in a company.
Some related technologies used in conjunction with SAP MM are:
SAP NetWeaver: an integration platform through which SAP MM can be connected to other SAP and non-SAP systems.
SAP Ariba: a cloud-based procurement platform that integrates with SAP MM to provide additional purchasing and supplier management functionality.
SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM): a module that can be used for more detailed and automated management of warehouse activities and inventories and can be integrated with SAP MM.
Overall, SAP MM is a powerful tool for managing procurement and inventory activities within a company and is often used in conjunction with other SAP modules and technologies to provide a comprehensive solution for materials and inventory management.
