to delete the material physically you have to run archiving, but before you can archive a material, you have have to archive all dependend objects first.

e.g. if you had purchase orders and requisitions, then you have to run first archiving for PR and POs.

if your material has a bill of material, then this need to be archived first.

if your material had stock, then the earliest time to delete(archive) a material is when current year and previous year stock is zero.

in worst case you have to keep the material for another 2 years.
