Predefined Process Message Categories

The message categories predefined by SAP are used for the integration of process data into the R/3 logistics components:

The table below lists message categories that are predefined by SAP together with the business transactions they trigger in the above-mentioned components.

Process messages consist of process message characteristics. For information on the characteristics of predefined message categories, choose the relevant message category. The process message characteristics marked as Req (required) describe the minimum scope of the respective message.

For more information on the exact structure of the messages in different business scenarios as well as the processing logic for the different messages, see the R/3 Library PP Process Management.
