In this step, you specify which strategies are to be grouped together into a strategy group. You can determine a main strategy as well as a maximum of seven alternative strategies.
The main strategy is proposed in demand management or sales order management but it can be overwritten by another planning strategy defined in the strategy group, if necessary.
You can assign the strategy group to the material directly in the material master record or you can first assign the strategy group to an MRP group and then in a second step, you can assign the MRP group to the material in the material master record.
In the standard SAP system, the strategy groups are preset.
