    Hi Siva,

    I created a bunch of material groups with respect to the Material Master Exercise but when i am creating a new material in the system, I don’t see any of the groups that i created under the Sales Org 2 tab. e.g of some of the groups are H1DESKTOP, H1LAPTOP etc.

    I created the groups unders Logistic Gen> Settings Relevant for Data Fields etc

    Question 1 : How many divisions would you create in this case ?
    The scenario does not indicate multiple sales organizations or distribution channels, so only 1 division is required.

    Question 2 : How many material groups would you create in this case ?
    The company has already elected to have a high level of granularity in thier product categories. This may indicates that there are multiple products in each category and the wish to report to these specific categories. In addition the PC’s are composite products that may be constructed using a Bill of Materials from the existing material groups, so I added 2 material groups “package computers and Lap tops.

    ZLC1 = IBU – Intel Based CPU, ZLC2 = ABU – AMD Based CPY,
    ZLC3 =M17 – 17 ” Monitors, ZLC4 = M19 – 19″ Monitors,
    ZLC5 = WM – Wired Mouse, ZLC6 = LM – Wireless Mouse,
    ZLC7 = WKB – Wired Keyboard, ZLC8 = LKB – Wireless Keyboard,
    ZLC9 = Computer Package, ZLC10 = Lap Top
