Whenever there is a new material, material code is opened by Stores in the system with above mentioned details.

Suggested Business Process

Kajaria Ceramics shall maintain material master data in Standard SAP System. In mySAP ERP the material master contains information on all the materials that a company procures or produces, stores, and sells. It is the company's central source for retrieving material-specific data. This information is stored in individual material master records.

The material master is used by all components in the SAP Logistics System. The integration of all material data in a single database object eliminates redundant data storage.

In the SAP Logistics System, the data contained in the material master is required, for example, for the following functions:


Materials are grouped into:

1.Raw materials: these are further categorized according to manufacturing operation,

viz-• Body • Glaze Frits

• Glaze material others • Stains

• Zirconium

These are further differentiated according to local/ Indigenous and import.

2. Packing materials: include cartoons of various sizes, wooden pallets, and plastic sheets for shrink wrap, glue, ink and strapping rolls.

3. Fuel: include RLNG, HSD, LDO, Furnace oil.

4. Finished goods: There are two types of finished goods: 1. Floor Tiles ( matt)

2. Wall Tiles (glossy)

Floor tiles are categorized according to the size like 300 X 300 mm, 400 x 400 mm, 395 x395 mm, etc which is further grouped into series like Plain, printed, budget series, and etc The product in the series is further divided into standard, commercial and utility.

Broken tiles are sold separately as scrap.

5. Trading Goods: Wall and floor tiles, borders and cassette are procured within India and are also imported from china, Italy, Spain, etc for trading.

Walls and floor tiles meant for trading are classified like finished goods. (See 4.)

Chapter IDs

On this screen, you define the chapter IDs and corresponding descriptions as described in the excise tariff structure. This information is used when you create excise invoices and is also shown in the various excise registers


Material and Chapter ID Combination

On this screen, you maintain the excise data relating to materials. For each material, specify:

• Chapter ID

• Whether the material can be sent to subcontractors • The material type

This denotes, for example, whether the material is a raw material, a capital good this affects the CENVAT process – or if it is a finished good on which excise has been paid, to be covered by the Update of RG 1 and Part I Registers

• Whether you accept more than one goods receipt per excise invoice, and if so, whether the excise duty should be credited to the CENVAT account immediately a goods receipt is posted (multiple credit) or not until all the goods receipts have arrived (single credit) This information is valid for a given plant. If the information is valid for all the plants, however, leave the Plant field blank.

Material Assessable Value

On this screen, you maintain the net dealer price and the assessable value of all materials that you send to subcontractors or for any other issue. These values serve as the excise base value when the materials are issued, and tell the system how much excise duty to reverse from your CENVAT account.

CENVAT Determination

On this screen, you specify which raw materials are used to produce which finished (or semi finished) goods. The system uses this information to determine whether it you can claim a CENVAT credit for a material.

Excise Tax Rate

Suggested Business Process

External procurement in the MM System centers around a general cycle of activities.

Process Flow

The typical procurement cycle for a service or material consists of the following phases:

Determination of Requirements

Materials requirements are identified either in the user departments or via materials planning and control. (This can cover both MRP proper and the demand-based approach to inventory control. The regular checking of stock levels of materials defined by master records, use of the order-point method, and forecasting on the basis of past usage are important aspects of the latter) You can enter purchase


Against the PO, the materials will be supplied by the vendor and GR will be prepared against vendor’s delivery challan /invoice, after inspection of the materials as per the inspection criteria / parameters given for the raw material and packaging materials and then it is finally sent to the stores department. Any materials being found defect or rejected, it’s then sent back to the vendor with return note and gate pass

Purchasing groups that are defined for Head Office should be

requisitions manually, or they can be generated automatically by the materials planning and control system.

Source Determination

The Purchasing component helps you identify potential sources of supply based on past orders and existing longer-term purchase agreements.

Vendor Selection and Comparison of Quotations

The system is capable of simulating pricing scenarios, allowing you to compare a number of different quotations. Rejection letters can be sent.

Purchase Order Processing

The Purchasing system adopts information from the requisition and the quotation to help you create a purchase order. As with purchase requisitions, you can generate Pos yourself or have the system generate them automatically. Vendor scheduling agreements and contracts (in the SAP System, types of longer-term purchase agreement) are also supported.

Purchase Order Follow-Up

The system checks the reminder periods you have specified and - if necessary - automatically prints reminders or expediters at the predefined intervals. It also provides you with an up-to-date status of all purchase requisitions, quotations, and purchase orders.

Goods Receipt and Inventory Management

Goods Receiving personnel can confirm the receipt of goods simply by entering the Po number. By specifying permissible tolerances, buyers can limit over- and under deliveries of ordered goods.

Invoice Verification

The system supports the checking and matching of invoices. The accounts payable clerk is notified of quantity and price variances because the system has access to PO and goods receipt data. This speeds the process of auditing and clearing

invoices for payment.

Procurement for Stock Versus Procurement for Direct Consumption

In the MM System, you procure either for stock or for direct consumption. You can determine the purpose for which ordered materials are being procured in the purchase order, for example. This section describes the differences between procuring for stock and procuring for direct consumption in the MM System.

Procurement for Stock

A stock material is a material that is kept in stock. Such materials are placed in storage following a goods receipt. When goods are received by or issued from stores or the warehouse, the stock on hand is increased or reduced by the amount of the quantity received or issued.

When you order a material for stock, the system does not require an account assignment. This is because the posting to the appropriate stock and consumption accounts occurs automatically after each goods movement (for example, after a material is received by the stores or issued from stores) . Furthermore, the value and the quantity of the stocked material are updated in the material master record.

To order a material for stock, the material must have a master record

Procurement for Direct Consumption

When you procure for direct consumption, you specify the consumption purpose by entering an account assignment (for example, a cost center) . On goods receipt, the material or service counts as having been consumed.

If a material is procured for direct consumption, the consumption accounts in Financial Accounting are posted when the goods receipt is entered. The total quantity and value of existing stocks of the material are not affected.


For each item of a purchasing document, you specify whether procurement is for stock or for direct consumption. In a purchasing document, you can enter items with or without account assignments.

If you order stock materials, the ordered material must have a material master record. If you order consumable materials, the ordered material may have a material master record.

Account assignments are possible for the following purchasing documents:

• Purchase requisitions

• Purchase orders

• Outline agreements

The Procurement process has various stages like Purchase Requisition, Request for Quotation, Quotation, Purchase Order, Contract, Goods Receipt with RG23 Postings and Invoice Verification

Purchase requisition can be created for a given plant storage location, purchase organisation, material code and delivery date. Request for Quotation, can be created by giving the material code, Plant, Storage location, purchase organisation, quotation deadline and requirement date. Vendor prices can be maintained and price comparison can be made.


The purchase order documents that need to be converted into word/text format in order to send them to vendors through e-mail, shall be considered during the ABAP enhancement.


AS-IS Business Process

At Kajaria Ceramics, any material is required, it’s generated through purchase requisition and approved by the individual dept head and forwarded to the purchase dept for the procurement.

Materials requirements are identified either in the user departments or via the demand-based approach to inventory control.

The regular checking of stock levels of materials defined by master records, use of the order-point method, and forecasting on the basis of past usage are important aspects for identifying the material requirement for purchase.

Minimum and maximum level of stock is maintained in stores. When the material falls below minimum level, a Purchase Requisition/Indent is created by stores. The stock is monitored on daily basis by taking the report from legacy system.

In case of plan for more production, production department creates indent for raw materials.

A quotation is an offer by a vendor to a purchasing organization regarding the supply of materials or performance of services subject to specified conditions.

The RFQ and the quotation form is a single document. Prices and conditions quoted by vendors are entered in the original RFQ. If you have issued an RFQ to several vendors, you can have the system determine the most favourable quotation submitted and automatically generate letters of rejection to the unsuccessful bidders. You can also store the prices and terms of delivery from certain quotations in an info record for future accessing.

A quotation is legally binding on the vendor for a certain period. The quotation is the vendor’s response to a request for quotation


Business Requirements:

The comparison statement or list shall be generated through SAP standard system.

issued by a purchasing organization.

A quotation consists of items in which the total quantity and delivery date of an offered material or service are specified. An item of a quotation may contain a delivery schedule made up of a number of schedule lines in which the total quantity is broken down into smaller quantities to be delivered on the specified dates over a certain period.

An item of the procurement type External service contains a set of service specifications. The latter can be hierarchically structured. The summary view of such a hierarchical structure is referred to as an outline. The outline comprises a number of levels, each representing a level of the service hierarchy. The quantities of the quotation are set out in service lines, representing individual jobs or activities

You can compare the prices from all quotations received as a result of a competitive bidding process using the price comparison list . The comparison list ranks the quotations by item from lowest to highest price.


Before you generate the price comparison list, you need to consider the following:

If possible, each quotation should have pricing data for the same item. Only then is the correct interpretation of the mean and total values possible.

If quotations 1 and 2 have pricing data for item 1, but quotation 3 only has price information for item 2, then the system does not have enough information to accurately compare the prices of all three quotations.

If a quotation is submitted in a foreign currency, the price is automatically translated into the currency of the company code, which is determined by your purchasing organization.

You should therefore make certain that up-to-date exchange rates are defined in your system.


You can compare the quotations within the list with a sample quotation. The system displays the percentage deviation between each quotation in the list and the sample quotation.

Mean/minimum value quotation

The price comparison list can also display a "fictitious" quotation reflecting the average or minimum value of all quotations. Select either the Mean or Minimum value quotation field to choose the type of fictitious quotation.

Percentage basis

The price comparison list displays the percentage of each item in relation to the maximum, minimum, or average price. To determine the display type, enter one of the following:

– “+” Highest value for each item is the 100% value – “-“ Lowest value for each item is the 100% value – +"_" Mean value for each item is the 100% value Price Computations

Select the appropriate field to specify which of the following should be taken into account in determining the comparison price:

– Cash discount – Delivery costs – Effective price Gaps:

The order quantities are set out in service lines, representing individual jobs or activities. Value limits are specified instead of service lines for services or work that initially cannot be specified precisely.

If services covered by an already existing contract are released (ordered, or called off against the contract), the PO item can


contain a value limit relating to the contract in question. Conditions
