Default value for period indicator MARC PERKZ in material master (mrp3)
when creating a new material master, the system automatically compiles the period indicator field with "W" (MARC-PERKZ in MRP3 view).
I want to change it to "T".
Can anyone explain me how the system determines this value and how to configure it in customizing (if so..)?

User parameters from SU3 work in selection screens, but not in data screens inside of a transaction.
It is SAP standard that the period gets defaulted with M, you can read about that in OSS note 512124 - MARC-PERKZ initial with new creation outside of dialog
You have the option to use a MRP profile to default another period indicator, but this requires that you enter the wanted MRP profile at the beginning of MM01.
Or you make use of the BADI BADI_MATERIAL_REF to default the wanted period indicator
