Organizational Elements

S/4HANA Purchasing Organization Structure

Material Valuation

Material Ledger is the obligatory inventory subledger. Materials get valuated in multiple languages according to General Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). This ledger calculates actual costing with actual prices (periodic unit price) for each material and particular periods.

Master Data

Client, plant, storage locations and purchasing groups are purchasing specific material master. This data is relevant input data for external procurement processes.

Vendor business partner master records offer client, company code and purchasing organization information. Assigned supplier roles provide purchasing data, valid for multiple assigned purchase organizations. Purchasing data includes transaction currency, payment method, contacts and reconciliation account.

Info records are not required for purchase order creation. They provide information about vendor and material on plant and purchase organization level. Info records vendor prices are conditions to determine prices in purchasing document.

S/4HANA Locking Strategies

Locking strategies for goods movements are customized with Transaction OMJI.

With the new S/4HANA locking concept, exclusive locking is not needed for materials with standard price control. Deactivating the statistical moving average price is irreversible and avoids exclusive locks during goods movements.
