Critical part parameter in material master.

Dear experter

I have a question concerning the parameter "critical part" in material master (Purchasing view or work scheduling view).

- What is the point of critical part ? Is it concern a quality?

- Where is it impact ? Is it impact to quality management module ?

- What is the purpose to activate this parameter?

Best Regard

The "Critical Part" can be flagged for very important materials, Basically it will not have impact any other module. It will be used only while doing "Inventory Sampling", otherwise you can use this field for the information purpose.

Check the F1 help

Indicator: Critical part

Specifies whether the material is a critical part, that is, a particularly important part.


In inventory sampling, critical parts are included in the complete-count area. The indicator is otherwise for your information only.
