Data Types in SAP

There are two primary types of data in SAP:

• Master data is data that is constant over a long period of time. Examples include vendors, banks, cost centers, G/L accounts and funds.
• Transaction data creates a document. Transactions consist of tasks such as processing incoming invoices and payments.

A third type of data, reporting data, exists. Reporting data are a combination of transactional and master data and are used to create summarized reporting data.

MRP Processing Keys

NETCH, NETPL and NEUPL are three fundamentally different ways to schedule your MRP run:

  • NETCH – Net Change Planning
  • NETPL – Net Change Planning within Planning Horizon
  • NEUPL – Regenerative Planning

SAP is keeping track of changes that are relevant for planning a material (like sales order entry, purchase order entry, stock release, etc.). A planning relevant change signals to MRP that the material should run in the next NETCH or NETPL MRP run. MRP will thus only process those materials that underwent some type of planning relevant change. This can decrease processing time of the MRP background run when compared to processing ALL materials.
