ERP.PICS is a dedicated website classifying SAP ERP visuals (cheatsheets, flowcharts, process diagrams etc.) by system and process.

Picture Description

The purpose of material master views in SAP is to organize material data relevant to specific departments within a company. This allows users in each department to easily access the information they need about a material. For example, the sales department can view sales-related information for a material, such as the sales unit and delivery data, without having to access information that is only relevant to other departments, such as accounting information.
