Material Ledger on SAP S/4HANA®
Where value and valuation meet
SAP Material Ledger (ML) improves the transparency of your material movements and inventory. It offers opportunities for managing multiple valuations as well as performing actual costing.
While the activation is mandatory in SAP S/4HANA, the most valuable setup depends on your specific requirements.
- Do your material cost fluctuate strongly and you need to understand the reason?
- Does your material move between different entities and you need to keep a clear overview?
- Are you operating internationally and are impacted by exchange rates and local production differences?
ML offers dedicated functionality for all these and many more scenarios.
ML (Material Ledger) can be easily activated and delivers value out of the box, such as the material price analysis. You can monitor influences on your material prices in real-time and derive actions for optimization.
With S/4HANA, ML becomes the sole source for material valuation, leveraging the universal journal (table ACDOCA). This not only improves the valuation consistency but also allows superior reporting and analysis. Additional value lies in multiple valuations, actual costing and transfer prices, which require appropriate setup.
