Representative materials


A representative material is a selected material number that stands for one or more other material numbers. If you do not want to store actual data, enter plan data or define transfer prices at the individual material level, you can use representative materials.

In Customizing, you can define rules to determine how materials are assigned to a representative material. You can assign materials at the controlling area, company code, or valuation area level, or for any combination of these levels.
