Additional Details

Change Request Tracker

Any processor assigned to a change request can now view the current workflow step, all previously executed dialog workflow steps, as well as all future steps needed until the change request is successfully approved.

The change request tracker can be called up via the new What’s Next link, which is displayed in the change request UIBB next to the entry for the current work item.

Price Unit Editable

Processors such as master data stewards can now change the price unit for plants with material ledger active or not active, and the corresponding prices are recalculated automatically.

The price unit field is now maintainable and related prices (for example Standard Price, Moving Price, Future (Standard) Price, Future Planned Price, Planned Price 1, Planned Price 2, Planned Price 3, Costing Lot Size) are also recalculated.

Production Resource/Tool (PRT)

SAP MDG delivers the most commonly used fields as part of its predefined data models. To enable master data stewards to maintain data for Production Resource/Tools directly within MDG governance, Production Resource/Tool fields are now available in the MDG-M data model in SAP S/4HANA 1909.

Technically, the fields have been added to the new entity MARCPRT. A set of new UI configurations with suffix ‘_09’ have been created (for example, BS_MAT_OVP_09).

SCM fields at MRP Area Level

To enable master data stewards to maintain the most commonly used fields from the MRP area in Supply Chain Management (from the Advanced Planning tab) as part of master data governance, these fields are now available as part of the MDG-M data model in SAP S/4HANA 1909.

From a technical perspective, the fields have been added to entity MDMABASIC. A set of new UI configurations with suffix ‘_09’ have been created (for example BS_MAT_OVP_09).

Enabling Master Data Governance for Inbound Product SOA Service

Users of SAP MDG are now able to process change requests that were created using SOA service ProductMDMBulkReplicateRequest.

They can configure the system to create a change request automatically when an SOA service is received, trigger a consolidation process, or post directly to the active area.

From a technical perspective, the new business activities MATI and MATU and new the change request types MATL0I (SOAP Product Inbound: Create Material) and MATL0U (SOAP Product Inbound: Change Material) are now delivered with BC Set MDGM_MDG_MATERIAL_CR_SOAP_09 and used as follows:

  • If the material doesn't exist yet, the default change request type for the new business activity MATI with logical action CREATE_DX is used.

  • If the material exists already, the default change request type for the new business activity MATU with logical action CHANGE_DX is used.

  • If multiple materials are sent, the default change request type for the new business activity MATB with logical action LOAD is used.
