The control code is used to maintain the NBM code, also known as NCM code. The NBM code may depend on material and vendor. If maintained in the material/vendor info record, this NBM code is used in the purchase order. If there is no info record or no such NBM code entry in the info record, the NBM code as maintained in the material master is used.

You can assign the NBM code to the material group by choosing the customizing path for Assign NBM code to material group.
