Sales view and order type
Through the item category group in the material master and the order type of the SD document, the system selects an item category for the sales order item. In the step "Control of requirements type determination", a requirements type is assigned to this item category if 1 or 2 is set as the source or if no MRP group is specified in the material master record.
Item category group NORM (standard item) is entered in the material master record.
This method offers the benefit that the selection of the requirements type is linked to the business process, such as quotation, sales order or repair.
