How To... Master Data Governance for Material: Govern DFPS industry-specific fields Applicable Releases: See SAP Note MDG together with SAP for Defense Forces and Public Security (DFPS) Version 1.0 March 2016 Document History Document Version Description 1.00 First official release of this guide TABLE OF CONTENTS 1. BUSINESS SCENARIO GOVERN DFPS SPECIFIC FIELDS IN MDG BACKEND EXTENSION (ACTIVE AREA) BACKEND TABLE EXTENSION BACKEND STRUCTURE EXTENSION BACKEND CUSTOMIZING: ASSIGN FIELDS TO FIELD SELECTION GROUPS MDG DATA MODEL EXTENSION (STAGING) SMT MAPPING UI MODEL REMARKS & FINDINGS MANUFACTURER PART NUMBER MATERIAL PLANNING OBJECT 1. BUSINESS SCENARIO SAP Master Data Governance, material data (MDGM) provides business processes to find, create, change, and delete material master data. It supports the governance of material master data in a central hub and the distribution to connected operational and business intelligence systems. The processes are workflow-driven and can include several approval and revision phases, and the collaboration of all users participating in the master data maintenance. In addition to the governance aspects, MDG has introduced improvements in the area of material master maintenance that may require changes in the backend system. This includes making fields read-only or bringing fields into other views. This How-To Guide describes step-by-step how to extend the standard MDG Material data model in order to bring under governance some DFPS industry-specific fields. 4 2. GOVERN DFPS SPECIFIC FIELDS IN MDG The DFPS Industry Solution brings a set of industry-specific fields in the ERP Material Master. MDG Material objects need to be enhanced to bring these additional fields under governance. This document covers in particular the following additional fields of table MARA: Field Data Element Description Data Type Length Decimal MCOND DFPS_MCOND Material Condition Management CHAR 1 0 RETDELC DFPS_RETDELC Return Code CHAR 1 0 LOGLEV_RETO DFPS_LOGLEV_RETO Return to Logistics Level CHAR 1 0 NSNID DFPS_NSNID NATO Stock Number CHAR 9 0 PICNUM PIC_PICNUM_SUS Supersession chain number CHAR 18 0 IMATN IMATN FFF class CHAR 18 0 Note: Fields PICNUM and IMATN are not DFPS-specific - they belong to the software component ECC-DIMP - but they are often used in Defense & Security organization processes. They are therefore included in this guide as well. As a prerequisite, all the steps reported in SAP Note must be implemented in the system. The guide How to Extend Content in MDGM with Customer Fields from Existing Tables (http://scn.sap.com/docs/doc ) explains in details the extension procedure. Please use this guide as a reference for your extension BACKEND EXTENSION (ACTIVE AREA) BACKEND TABLE EXTENSION Table MARA already contains all the industry-specific fields in scope for this guide so there is no need to extend any table in the ERP active area. 5 BACKEND STRUCTURE EXTENSION All the required structures of the active area already incorporate the new fields; it is possible to verify it using transaction code SE11 displaying the following structures: MDG_BS_MAT_S_MARA MDG_BS_MAT_S_MARA_UI MDG_BS_MAT_S_MARA_X BACKEND CUSTOMIZING: ASSIGN FIELDS TO FIELD SELECTION GROUPS All the fields in scope of this guide are already assigned to field selection group 147. This can be verified using the transaction code OMSR or accessing the customizing table T130F MDG DATA MODEL EXTENSION (STAGING) The standard data model MM must be extended. Since the fields in scope of this guide belong to table MARA, it s reasonable to add these attributes to the pre-delivered entity type MATERIAL. Note: Starting from MDG80 the data model specific structures will be automatically re-generated when the data model is activated. It s possible to check the generated structures using transaction code SE11. 6 2.3. SMT MAPPING Mappings to and from the active area have to be enhanced in order to handle the set of new fields. The following mapping steps need to be extended with new transformations. Mapping MDG_BS_MAT_MAP_2PP MDG_BS_MAT_MAP_2STA Mapping Step MDG_BS_MAT_MATERIAL MDG_BS_MAT_MARA 7 2.4. UI MODEL The industry specific fields can be added for example to the Basic Data section of the MDG-M single processing screen (BS_MAT_OVP_06). 8 9 3. REMARKS & FINDINGS 3.1. MANUFACTURER PART NUMBER The field Manufacturer Part Number (MARA-MPROF) must be populated for material type FFFC. However, due to field maintenance status, the field cannot be visible in MDG single processing screens. For this particular problem, please refer to point 4.3 of MDG-M Best Practice for Maintenance Status guide (http://scn.sap.com/docs/doc-53567) MATERIAL PLANNING OBJECT The field Material Planning Object (PNODID-PNAME) normally available as display-only field in MM0x screens of the DFPS backend system is not part of the standard MDG MM data model. If this particular field needs to be under governance, it should be considered as part of the extension project. 10 SAP AG. All rights reserved.
