 Material Assignment for Routings Locate this document in the navigation structure


You use this function to determine which material is to be produced with a routing or rate routing.

On the basis of this assignment, the routing can be used for sales and operations planning, material requirements planning, creating production orders and product costing for this material.


The material to be produced has a material master record in the system.

The material master record has been assigned a material type that is intended for assignment to a routing or rate routing (see Customizing for routings).


You can link routings and the material to be produced in the following ways (see graphic):

  • A routing can be used to produce several materials (for example red and green chairs).

  • Material and routing can belong to different plants, for example the planning plant and the production plant must not be the same.

  • A material can be produced with different routings. The different routings can be from different plants.
