Extend master data with new data attributes. Amy Johnston is a material analyst for Capture Electronics. Amy opens her SAP Data Maintenance software. She needs to maintain information about the number of pixels associated with a digital camera, which is not a standard SAP material master data field. Since business users can add fields and maintain values in the data without the help of IT, this should not be a problem for Amy. First, she checks if the attribute has already been defined in the software. She opens the material-attribute workbench and searches for the attribute “pixels.” The attribute exists so Amy looks to see what values are associated with it. She also confirms that the attribute has been logically grouped in the data by searching to see where else it is being used. The attribute “pixels” is associated with the attribute group “camera specifications,” which is a logical association for the attribute. Search and display data attributes. Amy now wants to display materials within a certain data set. She goes to the material workbench, which gives her an all-in-one view of the data, so she doesn’t have to navigate multiple screens and transactions. When she gets into the workbench, she searches for materials by their description. She chooses a material, starting with its identification data. The first number is a generic number that Amy can use on a purchase order; the second is her internal identifying number.

The screen contains both standard SAP fields and additional unique fields that are used for tracking and reporting. Finally, Amy displays the unique fields that she is interested in seeing. View, maintain, and change standard and custom data attributes. Amy would now like to perform mass maintenance on a group of materials. She needs to go to the material dashboard, which she can use to change and display more than one material at a time, based on the fields that she selects. Since this is a common query for Amy, she has already created an attribute set with specific attributes and values. Next, she’ll select only the fields she wants to change. If she only wants to maintain a couple of fields for multiple materials, she can choose them here, either manually or through an attribute-display set. Within the attribute selection screen, Amy enters into the dashboard-in-change mode. Then, she views the results showing all organizational levels and their corresponding values. Now Amy can begin to maintain the materials. She needs to change a few of the MRP controllers assigned to certain plants within certain materials. The easiest and fastest way to make these changes is to select and set the values that meet her criteria. After making the mass change, Amy analyzes the materials in t
