"Manufacturing" not listed in the drop down for industry sector in sap ecc

Hi all,

I just noticed that when I tried to create a material with mm01 ,the "manufacturing" option is missing in the drop-down for industry sector. I am running ECC 6.0 in my home laptop. This is demo IDES and the installer told me after install that it is Ehp version 3, but I'm not sure as I don't know the basis part.

Anyways ,can anyone please tell me if its only my system or is there some settings?How to bring manufacturing in the drop down list??

With Regards

I don't believe I have ever seen 'Manufacturing' in a standard 'as-delivered' SAP ECC system.  Standard sectors are

A  Plant engin./construction

C  Chemical Industry

M  Mechanical Engineering

P  Pharmaceuticals

You can easily create 'Manufacturing' as an industry sector within configuration.  OMS3.

Best Regards,
