3rd Party Sale- Mat Typ

Why it is necessary to've HAWA as a Mat Typ for 3rd party sales? What if we use FERT or any other Mat Typ?


Former Member replied


In addition to the comments made by the other friends

Why HAWA is generally used for third party is for logical reasons

HAWA material type is for trading goods and third party item we normally dont manufacture or keep inventory as on when the order comes it is directed to the vendor who makes supplies

Generally in SAP terminology FERT is finished goods from our own manufacturing which is ready for sales

Having said this we can use FERT also for third party

Absolutely no difference from SD point of view

The key here in third party is Material Master Record should have item category group as BANS and general item category can be any thing

Thro this it picks up TAS as item category which has some specific controls

TAS with MRP type in MMR (normally MRP type is maintained blank for third party) determines schedule line category CS which has a lot of controls

So ultimately if you look at it item category and schedule line category controls the entire third party processes which is initiated from item category group BANS and there is no role of material type

Hence it can be FERT or HAWA
