SAP MM : How to Create PLANT in SAP ?


PLANT: A plant is an organisational logistics unit that structures the enterprise from the perspective of production, procurement, plant maintenance and materials planning.  A plant can be a manufacturing facility or a branch within a company.
A plant has an address, language and belongs to a country and its own material master data

Plant plays an important role in the following

  • Service management
  • Material valuation : If the valuation level is the plant, the material stocks are valuated at plant level. If the valuation level is the plant, you can define the material prices for each plant. Each plant can have its own account determination
  • Inventory management : The material stocks are managed within a plant
  • MRP : Material requirements are planned for each plant. Each plant has its own MRP data. Analyses for materials planning can be made across plants.
  • ·         Production
  • ·         Costing : In costing, valuation prices are defined only within a plant.
  • ·         plant maintenance : If a plant performs plant maintenance planning tasks, it is defined as a maintenance planning plant. A maintenance planning plant can also carry out planning tasks for other plants (maintenance plants).
