Defines how you can work with MPN materials in the procurement process.


If you wish to work with MPN materials, enter a profile. The profile then applies to all MPN materials that are assigned to this firm's own, inventory-managed material.



In the profile, you can specify that:

  • Entry of the MPN material in the purchase order is mandatory
  • Info records may only be created for the MPN material
  • The system checks the approved manufacturer parts list when you enter an MPN material.


In Customizing for the Material master, the indicator Manufacturer part number must be set. You can check this in the activity Make Global Settings.
