Master data refers to the fundamental information that underpins every transaction.
Whatever your activity may be, whether it is producing, transferring stock, selling, buying, or doing a physical inventory, it requires certain master data to be maintained.
As you have Master Data for customers, vendors, plants, and shipping points, this can also be accessed by the SCM. As part of the data transfer using CIM, this information is copied to the corresponding SCM master data in the ERP system.
Data contexts provided by MASTER DATA include locations, customers, products, and assets. The types of data provided by MASTER DATA vary by industry.
CIF is used to communicate with EWM systems in order to build a relationship. This is CIF, which was used before EWM was introduced in ECC.
As soon as it is replicated, it will generate a Business partner and location.
Replicating a Material Master will create a new Product or Batch.
When we conduct business, we generate transaction data. The master data we generate is used to process transactions. Data generated as a result of a transaction is called transaction data.
SCM systems transfer master data from ERP systems to SCM systems in the form of material descriptions, units of measurements, weight volume information, etc. In all applications of the SCM, master data on products and locations are used.
Data transfer is performed using an integration model. You can specify the master data type and selection criteria to find the material master data. After creating the model, be sure to save and execute it. Activating the model is required for the data transfer to take place.
