Definition: Item Category Advertising Management (IS-M-AM) Characteristc that defines sales-relevant features of document items including planning

, pricing, production, billing, contract or commission relevance. Examples of possible item categories include Offer item, standard item full credit memo or barter deal . An offer item can be relevant to pricing and the contract but unlike a standard item, does not have to be relevant to planning, production, billing commission or the contract. Item categories and their features can be defined by the user. Billing Engine (CA-BE) An object that classifies a billing due list item or billing item, and defines how this item is processed during input processing and billing in a Billing Engine Application (BEA). Item categories are defined in the Application Customizing of a BEA by maintaining attributes (for example, relevance to billing, versioning flag and partner determination procedure for the billing due list). Purchasing (MM-PUR) An identifier indicating the characteristics of an item. The item category determines whether the following are mandatory or permitted for an item: • • • • • Material number Additional account assignment Inventory management in the SAP system Goods receipt Invoice receipt

Production Planning and Control (PP) An object that defines items in a BOM according to criteria, such as theobject type of the component, for example, material master record or document info record. The item category controls the following: • • Screen sequence Field selection

1

• • • •

Default values Material entry Inventory management Sub-items

Examples of item categories are: stock item, non-stock item, and document item. Sales and Distribution (SD) An indicator that defines the characteristics of a document item. For example, the item category controls the type and scope of: • • • • • Pricing Billing Delivery Inventory posting Transfer of requirements

Items in stock, and value and text items are item categories. Funds Management (PSM-FM) A control parameter in the commitment item master record. It is used in: • • Cash Budget Management to differentiate between actual and commitment values and plan values in inventory, revenue, and expenditure items Commitment Accounting to differentiate between actual and commitment values and budget values in revenue and expenditure items

Maintain the respective specifications of the detail screen. item categories and schedule line categories. The SAP system automatically transfers the item category that was found for the sales document item into the delivery item. all the specifications of the existing item category are copied . the data for example concerning partner determination. Activities If you only need to make minor changes to the existing item categories (e. Create a new item category. When copying sales document types. you can test the new item category for the settings made without having to edit the other menu options. Enter an alphanumeric key with a maximum of four characters. changed description). Minor changes refer to parameters that have no controlling character. the keys should begin with the letter Z since SAP keeps this range free in the standard system and protects it from being overwritten during release upgrades. In this case. then you change this as appropriate. If you need to make further changes.even the assignment to the sales document types. pricing or document flow which you do not edit on the detail screen of the item category is also copied. you can for example define an item category for which a certain type of pricing is carried out. Note If you create or copy a new item category that is to be used for a delivery. proceed as follows: 1. If you want to create an item category. or for which the data must not differ at header and item level but which otherwise matches an existing item category. The item categories that are contained in the standard SAP R/3 System together with the sales document types represent the usual business transactions.Define Item Categories In this menu option. Consequently. In this way. Using the log. define a new item category by copying a similar item category supplied in the standard system and then change this according to your requirements.g. you define item categories for sales documents. the SAP system automatically creates a log with the copied data. If you define your own item categories. Recommendation If you define your own item categories. You have the following options for defining your own item categories: • • Copy an existing item category and change it according to your requirements. you can check whether all of the copied data applies to your item category or whether you must make changes. 2. you should copy similar item categories that are defined by SAP and make the required changes there. you must also define a delivery item category with the same name. 3 . In particular.

The system uses the completion rule to determine the status of a quotation or contract that has been referenced by other documents (by subsequent sales orders. For example. for example.3. for example). Item type A way of classifying items that require different kinds of processing by the system. Use You can. 4 . Sales document item category A classification that distinguishes between different types of item (for example. you must first select the Update document flow field in document flow control in SD Customizing using the following menu path: Sales and Distribution --> Sales --> Maintain copy control for sales documents --> Copy control: Sales document to sales document (at item level). Use The system processes items that refer to a specific material differently than items that do not refer to a material. Dependencies If you want the system to apply the completion rule. you tell the system. Procedure The system proposes an item category. in this case. specify that a quotation is complete only after its quantity has been fully referenced by subsequent documents. text items do not require processing for pricing. you can change the item category manually in the sales document . you identify an item as a free or charge item. Completion rule for quotation / contract The rule for establishing when a quotation or contract is complete. to ignore normal pricing procedures. and weight calculations. taxes. Also consider the additional functions on item category level and the item-specific settings in the general sales and distribution functions. If alternatives are defined for your system. Example If. free of charge items and text items) and determines how the system processes the item. for example.

status according to invoice quantity Relevant for order-related billing documents based on the invoice receipt quantity (third-party business transaction). Item category TAS (Third party item) is set up with billing relevance "F" in the standard system. (In Customizing. H: Delivery-related billing .no zero quantities You can use this category to avoid items with a value of zero being included in the billing document. The system transfers the order into the billing due list only after the vendor invoice has been received and processed in the purchasing department.status according to target quantity Billing is based on the sales document.) G: Order-related billing of the delivery quantity The order is relevant for billing. a customer invoice is created for the quantity that appears on the vendor invoice. Indicator "D" can also be used as follows for cross-company-code business processing: In the case of a free-of-charge outbound delivery. . After the receipt of each invoice.C: Relevant for order-related billing . The target quantity determines the billing status.billing plan Billing occurs by way of the billing plan and its status. I: Order-relevant billing . the company code that is responsible for the delivery should be granted an internal settlement. The order has status "Billed" until the next vendor invoice is received. 6 . More specifically. D: Relevant for pro forma The billing relevance indicator must contain a value (not be blank) in order to be able to create pro forma invoices. then select an item category. The status of the order item is seen as the sum of the billing plan status and the billing status. the cumulated delivery quantity that was already delivered is relevant for billing. Item categories G2N (Credit memo) and L2N (Debit memo) are set up with billing relevance "C" in the standard system. You can use this category to bill for multiple partial deliveries at once. choose Sales and Distribution -> Billing -> Billing documents -> Maintain Copying Control for Billing Documents -> Copying Control: Delivery to Billing Document -> Item. You can make the control setting as to whether the invoice receipt quantity or the goods receipt quantity should be relevant for billing in the copy control for billing on the item level in the billing quantity field. This process can also be related to the quantity of goods receipt. You can use indicator "D" to record free-of-charge outbound deliveries and grant internal settlements to the relevant company code. F: Order-related billing doc.

Q: Relevant for delivery-related CRM billing You can use this indicator if you use CRM billing to invoice the items delivered and goods-issueposted in the R/3 OLTP system. Block Indicates if the item is blocked for billing. J: Relevant for deliveries across EU countries The outbound delivery is only relevant for billing if: 1. The following options have been defined • • Periodic billing . 7 . Milestone billing is used to bill projects. MVN (Lease item) and TAO (Milestone billing) are set up with billing relevance "I" in the standard system. K: Delivery-related invoices for partial quantity You can use this indicator if you want to select both items and partial quantities for billing.the total value to be billed is distributed between the individual billing plan dates (the value billed on each date can be fixed amount or a percentage) Example Periodic billing is used to bill rental or maintenance contracts. Country of departure (country where the plant is located) and destination country (country where the ship-to party is located) are different EU countries. KAN (Consignment Pick-up) and NLN (Standard Stock Transfer Item) are set up with billing relevance "J" in the standard system.

You can change the block for individual schedule lines. In the case of text items. however. There are four possible entries: No value Revenue for this item is recognized at the time of invoice creation (standard). 'A' The value of this item is recognized for the same amounts according to the accrual period. If the system does not propose a block. Statistical values Indicates whether the system takes the value of an item into account when it determines the total value of a document. pricing would not make sense. Example The system carries out pricing for standard items in a sales order. If the item has more than one schedule line. returns.Use The system can automatically propose a billing block for sales documents that must be checked before billing (for example. 'D' The value of the item is implemented in equal amounts in accordance with the accrual period for this item (billingrelated). 'B' Revenue is recognized based on business transactions such as goods receipt for delivery-relevant items or posting sales orders for items that are not relevant to delivery. Carry out pricing Indicates whether the system automatically carries out pricing at the item level. you can change the block manually for each item. the block applies to each line. enter one of values predefined for your system. 8 . Revenue recognition category Specifies the releveant revenue recognition category for this item. credit and debit memo requests). Procedure If the system proposes a block.

the system creates four schedule lines and determines the appropriate quantities and delivery dates for each schedule line. can always have schedule lines. Return -> Definition: schedule_line Item is relevant for delivery Indicates whether a text or value item is relevant during delivery processing. Definition: schedule line Sales and Distribution (SD) The division of an item in a sales document according to date and quantitiy. they can have schedule lines . text items can be copied into a delivery. such as items in contracts and credit memo requests. 10 . Text items are an exception. do not have schedule lines.Use Items that are relevant for delivery. On the other hand. Dependencies Usually. items that are not relevant for delivery. Note The functions for documentary payments can also be used for item categories with this indicator. if the total quantity of an item can only be delivered in four partial deliveries. Example For example. delivery. Use The item itself is not delivered. You can create text items with or without schedule lines (in the standard version. but serves only for information purposes. Relevant for weight/volume Indicator that controls whether the system calculates weight and volume for the item. ID: Item with active credit function / relevant for credit Indicates whether the credit management functions (credit checks and updating statistics) are active for the order. such as sales order items. you can refer to a text item as relevant for delivery so that the system copies it from a sales order into a delivery note. With or without schedule lines. or invoice items.you can change this in SD Customizing when you define item information). For example. items that do not have schedule lines cannot be copied into a delivery.

the system may then determine a considerably earlier delivery deadline as no separate make-to-order production is required. 11 . Run ATP check on material variants Specifies whether the system should run an ATP check for the material variants. The configuration strategy is a group concept which can also be used for item categories. the system determines the cost (stock value) of a sales document item. Use When you enter a material handled in batches in a sales order or in a delivery to which an item category with this indicator is assigned. during pricing. Action when material variant determined during configuration Controls how the system reacts when it determines that an existing configuration is already used as a stockable type. activate this field. You can set various fine-tune controls for each strategy. Strategy Form of configuration processing Controls which checks and processing are run automatically or are allowed during configuration.Determine cost Indicates whether.1) Automatic batch determination Procedure If you want to use automatic batch determination for materials handled in batches with the specified item category. When defining a stockable type. for instance whether the system is to run a check for required characteristics or for multiple selections of characteristics. Use The system checks the cost determination indicator as a requirement before applying the condition type that calculates the cost (condition type VPRS in the standard version of R/3 1. Config. the batch or batches of this material that match the customer's requirements are determined automatically.

trim. Configurable materials contain a super bill of material (BOM) that contains all components for producing each variant of the material. Use In order to select the right alternative for a specific application area.Structural scope of a material with bill of material Procedure Make an entry here to indicate how a bill of material is processed in a sales order involving this item category. the following criteria are defined for each application: • • • • Priority for BOM usage Priority of a specific alternative for a particular material BOM Production version from the material master Checking of certain status indicators 12 . When you are using configurable materials . only the components and operations needed for a variant are chosen. In the item category. and engines. Example You can specify the extent to which non-configurable materials should be exploded in the sales order. Return -> Definition: configurable_material Application This key represents a process for automatic determination of alternatives in the different organizational areas within a company. the level up to which subitems should be created for the bill of material components. Definition: configurable material Variant Configuration (LO-VC) A substance that can have variants such as a car can have different paint. or the Material is configurable indicator is activated in the material master record. you must enter either C or D as the structure scope for configurable materials. When configuring a material. the structure scope determines whether it is possible to configure the material in the sales document. that is. material type KMAT in the standard system. Configurable materials are created in a material type that is designated for the configuration.

Return -> Definition: alternative_BOM Definition: BOM usage Production Planning and Control (PP) A tool that allows you to enter BOMs. The search process is controlled by the "application" entered and additional selection criteria as appropriate. production. for example. for material LAMP. all items in BOMs with a certain usage are relevant to production. for specific sections of your company. so that each section only processes the items relevant to that section. 13 . you can define which item statuses can be used in which BOM usage. These alternative BOMs are grouped in a multiple BOM. that controls automatic explosion of BOMs. are to be combined in a delivery group.Definition: alternative determination Production Planning and Control (PP) The system automatically determines which alternative in a multiple BOM is required with a multilevel BOM explosion. The usage is an important selection criterion in the BOM application. different production processes are used for different lot size ranges. For example. One product can be represented by several (alternative) BOMs if. and which resulted from a BOM explosion. You can enter a separate BOM for each section in your company. for example. Return -> Definition: alternative_determination Definition: alternative BOM Production Planning and Control (PP) A tool that used to identify one bill of material in a BOM group. In customizing functions. Return -> Definition: BOM_usage Create delivery group Form delivery group and correlate BOM components Here you can determine whether sub-items that belong to a main item. The applications are defined in Customizing.

when all items in a bill of material are available. In this case. you can determine. On the first date. Indicator: Assign values for parameter effectivities This indicator controls that the item can be maintained with parameter effectivity . Indicator X means that a delivery date is created for the delivery group.Use You use a delivery group to determine a common delivery date for all the items that it contains. Examples The effectivity type SERNR (serial number) has the following parameters allocated to it: • • Material number of parameter type S (single value) Serial number of parameter type O (open interval) If you choose the effectivity type SERNR in the channge master record. you reach an alternative selection screen with specifications on the lot size range. for each item type. the system creates a correlated schedule line. a confirmed quantity is issued. If no complete delivery is required. Effectivity Type Definition Determines the conditions that the object changes are effective under. then the order quantity for the sub-item will also be doubled. Use If a multiple BOM occurs during bill of material explosion in SD. as soon as all the items in a bill of material are available. Use Allocating an effectivity type means that the effectivity of changes is not determined by a valid from date. whether you want to select the alternative manually. Manual selection for BOM alternatives This indicator shows that you can select the alternative manually. but by the parameter of the effectivity type. you must maintain the following values: • Material number 14 . If you double the quantity ordered for the main item. The system uses the last date (chronologically) of an item in this group to create the schedule line date. Indicator A means that the system generates correlated schedule lines.

Dependencies You can process the following objects with reference to a change number whose effectivity conditions are determined by an effectivity type: • • • • • BOMs Routings Characteristics Characteristics of class Classification Value contract material The system copies the material specified here to the value contract item. Response on reaching release order value in value contract This indicator controls how the system reacts when the value of your release order for a value contract item reaches or exceeds the open target value of the value contract item. permitted with warning D As for 'A' but value contract is not blocked The following lock logic takes place if you activate D or leave the field blank (No response if target value is exceeded): 15 . The following settings are available: • • • • • ´ ´ No response if target value is exceeded A Warning if target value is exceeded B Error message if target value is exceeded C First time target value is exceeded. if a material has not already been specified by the user for that item.
