Sometimes user requirement will be little different than SAP Standard, then we go for some enhancement in SAP Standard Application.

UNSPSC Code is one of them which is not available in MM01/02/03 SAP Screen.

  • How to Assign an UNSPSC Code into Material Master in SAP without any enhancement.
    • Create minimum two Characteristics Using CT04 T-codes.
      • Characteristics Name : “UNSPSC_CODE
        • Status 1 (Release )
        • Data type ( CHAR, Character Format)
        • Number of Char is ‘8’ (i.e. UNSPSC Code length )

    • Class Name “UNSPSC”
    • Class type  ‘001’

      Shri Vivek,

      It is United Nations Standards Products & Services Code. This organization has categorized all the products & services into 4 categories / levels. Segment, Family, Class, Commodity. We have defined UNSPSC under Material Group in ECC6 EHP7. Also we have defined the service master as per UNSPSC. Considering the same we are going to use the same for ABC analysis, ROL , Expenditure analysis, Inventory control.

      Hope it is clear.

      Hi guys,

      I am just wondering if instead I use UNSPSC code in my material group field  I  use them in my product hierarchy field , because the level . Is this a option or I am missing something here?

      Due to the fact that UNSPSC codes regularly (at lease once a year there is a new version) and due to the fact that release strategies can base on material groups this would make an update to the internal processes inconvenient and exhausting. Therefor deploying the SAP classification system would be more proper here
