MM Configuration: Define Plant Step-by-Step SAP Material Management (MM) Configuration: Define Plant

This post will explain a step by step SAP MM configuration of how to define a plant in an SAP client.

A plant is the place of production, or branch of a company, or simply a collection of several locations of material stocks in close physical proximity. A plant is represented by a client-unique 4-digit alpha-numeric. Plant is used in Material Management (MM), Production Planning (PP), Sales and Distribution (SD), and Plant Maintenance (PM) module. A plant is assigned to one company code. One company code can have more than one plant. One Business Area is assigned to plant. Several plants can have same business area. We can define Plant in a SAP R/3 client with T-code: SPRO.
