Our business was planning to use MD07 with respect to a vendor which will constitute a large number of materials. Since there are large number of materials per vendor we wanted to know if there is an option to view MD07 with the traffic lights defined per material group as we would need to flag different number of days. Or is there any suggestions that you could provide whereby we could use a monitor like MD07 which shows the list of materials and displays the signal with respect to the material

I'd like to ask you to read carefully the note below:
1587375 - Evaluation profile in MD07 and BADI MD_SET_TRAFFIC_LIGHTS_DS
The functionality described on this note allows you to define own specific traffic light threshold values for specific groups of materials (via the MRP group), which is user-independent. The tool to get this functionality is the Evaluation profile. You can assign the evaluation profile to MRP groups or to a plant, this allows you to have different evaluation profiles for the same user.
You can also user BAdI MD_SET_TRAFFIC_LIGHTS_DS for a more flexible approach.
Please read the complete note for more details.
